RNG now accounts for 53% of on-road NGV fuel use in 2020

April 18, 2021 |

In Washington, D.C., Natural Gas Vehicles for America and Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas report that 53% of all on-road fuel used in natural gas vehicles in 2020 was renewable natural gas, up 25% over 2019 volumes and increasing 267% over the last 5 years.

Captured above ground from organic material in agricultural, wastewater, landfill, or food waste, RNG can produce carbon-negative results when fueling on-road vehicles like short- and long-haul trucks, transit buses, and refuse and recycling collection vehicles. The California Air Resources Board’s Q3 2020 data confirms that the energy weighted carbon intensity (CI) value of California’s RNG vehicle fuel portfolio in its Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) program is carbon negative and below zero at -17.95 gCO2e/MJ.

NGVAmerica and RNG Coalition report that in 2020 a total of 646 million gallons (GGE) of natural gas were used as motor fuel. Of that, 345 million gallons (GGE) were from renewable sources.
