America’s Renewable Transportation Future
Increasing & Promoting Domestic Energy

Promoting Abundant, Clean American Energy

Moving US Forward stands for increasing the supply and promoting the use of domestic energy at a critical time by offering a viable and immediately available clean alternative to fossil fuels while utilizing existing domestic infrastructure. During the interim period where practical, heavy-duty electric vehicles are decades away from commercial application, renewable natural gas can offer an immediate and tangible solution.

Renewable Gas Vehicles

RNG technology and infrastructure is currently available, as RNG can be distributed using existing natural gas infrastructure without requiring new, costly and resource-intensive infrastructure buildouts.

RNG vehicles offer a 1:1 replacement of diesel technology with similar power, torque, and range capabilities as diesel, regardless of terrain or weather.
RNG can be distributed using the existing natural gas infrastructure.
The availability of this technology allows RNG to be immediately deployed, which will significantly reduce emissions now rather than wait for future reduction opportunities.​
RNG is being used today by some of the country’s largest logistics and refuses fleets as well as the country’s largest transit agencies.
However more needs to be done to encourage other fleets to convert their vehicles to RNG.
This is crucial as reductions made today have a cumulative impact later.

Ensuring Long-term Sustainability By Dramatically Reducing Carbon Emissions

Moving US Forward stands for the safe, responsible and renewable production and usage of domestic clean energy. We can dramatically reduce emissions of a variety of greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxides. The technology and infrastructure exist and can be utilized to offer a carbon-negative alternative to traditional fossil fuels.

RNG is a pipeline-quality natural gas produced from biogas generated by the decomposition of organic material derived from sources such as landfills, wastewater treatment facilities, and agricultural waste.

RNG production captures methane, preventing the release of methane emissions and repurposing waste into a sustainable fuel that emits 90% fewer GHGs than diesel.

RNG is the least carbon-intensive (CI) vehicle fuel with an average CI of -62.7 gCO2e/MJ, which is significantly lower than even electric batteries derived from wind or solar power that have a CI of 15.2 gCO2e/MJ.

RNG vehicles also emit fewer harmful criteria pollutants such as NOx, which impact regional air quality in communities frequented by diesel-fueled vehicles.

Securing Domestic Jobs and Strengthening America’s Heartland

Moving US Forward stands for strengthening the domestic workforce of the United States. By aligning with our farmers, cities, and other stakeholders across the nation, we can simultaneously create jobs, secure energy self-sufficiency, reduce emissions, and bolster the economy.

We can invest in our communities to build a cleaner, more innovative America and be the driving force behind renewable energy development.

RNG is poised to be an economic driver and job creator across the country, unlocking millions of dollars of investment in local economies and supporting the hundreds of thousands of clean energy-sector jobs in construction, operations, maintenance, manufacturing,
and engineering.

Farmers can generate renewable natural gas on their farms and can share in the steady, long- term revenue that RNG projects can produce.

Renewable Natural Gas Fueling Credit.

Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) is a clean, affordable, reliable, waste-derived fuel, powering heavy-duty vehicles with carbon-neutral or carbon-negative footprint, depending on the feedstock. Natural gas vehicles (NGVs) have ultra-low emissions and fueling NGVs with RNG provides countless benefits. The United States must implement a $1.00 credit for use of RNG in transportation fuel.
RNG for fueling can cost two to three times more than CNG per MMbtu.​
The dirtier the feedstock and lower CI RNG fuel is, the more production costs per gallon.
Comparable fuels receive $1.00/gallon despite worse carbon intensity and emissions.​
RNG trucks reduce NOx emissions and harmful particulate matter when replacing diesel vehicles but cost approximately $65,000 more per vehicle.
This fuel credit helps to offset the cost of investing in new, clean vehicles and ensure the oldest, dirtiest diesel trucks are taken off of our roads. We ask Congress to implement a $1.00/gallon tax credit on the sale or use of RNG as a transportation fuel.
Increased gas collection required for RNG production benefits communities that are disproportionately impacted by air, water, odor, and sound pollution.
