Fortistar and TruStar Energy will both be attending the WasteExpo in Las Vegas, Nev., from May 6-9 to discuss renewable natural gas (RNG) with landfill owners, project developers and fleet owners.
The energy firms are hoping what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas this time, as they’re trying to spread the word about sustainable energy—mainly RNG and compressed natural gas (CNG).
On the heels of acquiring a pair of RNG facilities in Pennsylvania, White Plains, N.Y.-based Fortistar now “extracts methane from landfills and converts it to RNG, paving the way for a sustainable transportation fuel supply chain working with its affiliate, TruStar Energy.”
“RNG offers a tremendous opportunity to decarbonize America’s transportation fuel supply,” said Mark Comora, President, Fortistar, and Chairman, TruStar Energy. “Our firm has operated in dozens of landfill gas to energy projects; TruStar Energy has constructed 250 natural gas fueling stations. We are closing the RNG supply loop as a uniquely vertically integrated company, extracting it from landfills and moving it into natural gas trucks. We are looking forward to speaking with industry and municipal representatives at WasteExpo to accelerate this opportunity.”
“Natural gas as a transportation fuel has proven to be a great success story for fleets—both economically and environmentally—and the communities they serve with quieter trucks and cleaner air,” said Adam Comora, CEO, TruStar Energy. “TruStar Energy is extremely proud of our role in that success story. As we look into 2019 and beyond, we are excited to build on that success by expanding our RNG offerings, which drive economic benefits and drastically reduces the carbon as compared to diesel fuel.”
