Opal Fuels, a producer and distributor of renewable natural gas for heavy-duty truck fleets, announced a contract with City Furniture to build three RNG fueling stations and supply the company with 7.75 million gasoline gallon equivalent of RNG over the terms of the agreement.
TruStar Energy, an Opal Fuels company, will manage the CNG station development, construction, and service in the Florida locations of Miami Gardens, Ocoee and Plant City.
The three new stations join City Furniture’s first RNG fueling station in Tamarac, Fla., which Opal Fuels noted it built 10 years ago.
City Furniture’s sustainability push includes a promise for carbon neutrality by 2040.
“We make thousands of deliveries every year, so transitioning all of our trucks to RNG is a critical step in reducing our emissions,” City Furniture President Andrew Koenig said in a release.
RNG is the natural byproduct of landfills and animal waste, captured and processed before it leaks into the atmosphere or is required to be burned off.
“Companies operating heavy-duty 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,” Opal co-CEO Adam Comora said. “RNG does that today.” — Transport Topics
