AMP Americas, a North American RNG producer and marketer, has broken ground on a new public-access ampCNG fueling station in Buda, Texas, with US Foods serving as the station’s anchor fleet.
Located adjacent to the US Foods distribution center in Buda, the fast-fill CNG station will have two dual-hose dispensers serving two lanes. The station is expected to open by February 2018 and will fuel US Foods’ Buda-based fleet of 50 CNG trucks.
“We are proud to partner with one of the country’s largest foodservice distributors and to help US Foods improve air quality with a much cleaner, more cost effective, domestic fuel,” said Grant Zimmerman, CEO at AMP Americas. “Support from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has been instrumental in helping us bring this station to Buda.”
The new station marks ampCNG’s eighth in Texas, bringing its total station network to 20. The company’s other stations in Texas are located in Amarillo, Harrold, Waco, Brock, Rosenberg, Sweetwater and Kerrville.
AMP Americas, which has just been awarded a Carbon Intensity (CI) score of -254.94 gCO2e/MJ by the California Air Resources Board (CARB), continues to expand its national footprint and to invest heavily in dairy RNG projects across the country to bring more ultra-low CI gas to market. Construction is currently underway for the company’s second RNG project using dairy digester gas. The company plans to more than double its dairy gas output by mid-2018, and aims to deliver ampRenew, its 100 percent RNG, to all 20 of its ampCNG fueling stations as it brings on future projects.
