TruStar Energy invests in renewable natural gas for U.S. heavy transport

TruStar Energy announced a successful 2020 and aggressive growth plans to continue transitioning heavy duty United States transportation from diesel to lower cost, cleaner alternatives. Last year, the company signed long term renewable natural gas fuel supply contracts totaling 175 million GGE and is set to deliver over 30 million GGE of renewable natural gas in 2021.

“The future of renewable heavy-duty transportation is here now, thanks to renewable natural gas,” said Adam Comora, President and CEO of TruStar Energy. “Companies operating Class 8 trucks are quickly realizing that they don’t have to wait for new, unproven technologies and infrastructure to significantly reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and save on fuel costs—our fuel does that today. We see renewable natural gas as a lasting part of a future where there will be many different fuels and technologies for various applications. We’re excited about the long-term benefits of renewable natural gas and look forward to helping more organizations deploy it within their heavy-duty fleet.”

During 2020, TruStar Energy completed 42 natural gas fueling station projects across the country, bringing its total completed projects to 380. TruStar’s service network continues to grow with over 60 service professionals providing coverage to 140 fueling stations nationwide, producing over 120 million annual GGE.

In December, the company’s parent, Fortistar, in tandem with the TruStar Energy’s distribution efforts, announced the fifth of 12 new renewable natural gas projects, together requiring nearly $500 million of new capital investment. These new projects will produce over 100 million GGE annually of biomethane, reducing annual U.S. transportation emissions by 2 million metric tons of CO2—the equivalent of taking approximately 434,782 passenger cars off the road.

“TruStar Energy combines renewable natural gas fuel supply with best in class fuel delivery. By designing, engineering, constructing and servicing stations, we ensure seamless execution and uninterrupted fuel supply for our fleet partners,” said Scott Edelbach, Chief Operating Officer of TruStar Energy. “TruStar Energy provides a vertically integrated solution for fleets looking to reduce their carbon footprint, save money, and most importantly, do it today.”
