About the Solution:
RenewGas works with each customer to match the right trailer type and capacity to the performance requirements of the project, including gas output, compression, available space, as well as permit and regulatory limits. Trailers are dedicated to the individual customer and assigned to the specific farm.
They employ a range of trailer types to guarantee each delivery meets the strict safety requirements for hazardous cargo transport under USDOT over-the-road requirements.
At RenewGas, every trailer is subjected to daily safety inspection and is independently re-certified every five years to meet Department of Transportation performance requirements.
RenewGas owns and operates their own fleet of diesel-fueled tractors capable of hauling fully loaded CNG trailers with a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 80,000 lbs.
Each RenewGas truck is equipped with on-board telematics that integrate GPS tracking and diagnostics into our driver management system for USDOT compliance reporting.
They use real-time route tracking and cloud-based record-keeping for complete CARB verification of delivery. In addition, every RenewGas vehicle incorporates both forward and in-the-cab cameras to provide maximum safe monitoring of every team member, and a FMCSA-listed electronic database linked to mobile driver trip logs for every delivery.

Renew Gas Transportation provides virtual pipeline services for RNG projects – trucked natural gas delivery to the pipeline. They support the overall RNG project by enabling the delivery of the product gas to interconnection points that might not have the ability to do their own interconnection or that are not close enough to a natural gas line interconnect.
Renew Gas Transportation works on a contracted service model and their company carries all the capital costs associated with the trucking operation. The project owns the gas loading equipment that is part of the larger anaerobic digester infrastructure.
Renew Gas Transportation has worked with more than 50 farms, landfills and wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) as part of their RNG development planning. They provide in-person training and response, including equipment specifications, design review, hazmat code compliance, logistics, emergency response plans, and first responder training. They guarantee delivery performance on every load, backed by a financial penalty. Renew Gas Transportation states that they have never had an event where they disrupted service, and have never incurred a penalty payment as a result.
