FedEx Fuel Option

New Fuel Option Means Cleaner Truck Routes

Jan 10, 2017

Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) has a name that sounds like it could be a complex scientific concept, but it’s really not that complicated: CNG is primarily methane gas stored at high pressure. That’s it.

Why do we care?

We care because CNG can be used in the same place as gasoline, diesel, or propane, but is generally cleaner and helps diversify the fuel supply.

It’s pretty simple to generate – made by compressing normal natural gas to less than 1% of the volume it occupies at normal atmospheric pressure. CNG burns more cleanly than diesel, producing lower CO2 emissions, and almost all of the natural gas in the United States is homegrown, not imported.

Natural gas can be renewable, with some of it even generated by landfills.
