Ohio has become the first state to host a renewable natural gas fueling station that’s designed to support Amazon’s plan to deploy more heavy-duty trucks that run on RNG.
The renewable natural gas station in Groveport is operated by Clean Energy Corp. and is the first of about 19 that will be placed around the country for Amazon this year.
“What you’re seeing here today is how the industry is pivoting to trucks that move goods. And what’s happened more importantly really for the environment is we’ve shifted over to renewable natural gas. We’re actually harnessing natural gas, methane that’s coming out of dairy farms or landfills, cleaning it up a little bit, putting it in a pipeline, and then putting in these trucks,” said Littlefair.
