Chevron, Cummins announce alternative fuel agreement

This agreement will encompass liquid renewable fuels, such as renewable gasoline blends, biodiesel and renewable diesel.

Building on a previously announced strategic collaboration, Cummins Inc. and Chevron U.S.A. Inc. announced that they have signed a memorandum of understanding to work together on various alternative fuel solutions.

Expanding companies’ previous strategic collaboration on hydrogen and renewable natural gas, this agreement will encompass other liquid renewable fuels, such as renewable gasoline blends, biodiesel and renewable diesel, the companies say.

At Cummins, we are working to bring our Destination Zero strategy to life, and we recognize we can’t do this alone,” explained Jennifer Rumsey, president and CEO of Cummins Inc. “Through Accelera by Cummins we have leading zero-emissions technologies for commercial and industrial applications, and we continue to offer a broad portfolio of engine-based solutions that reduce greenhouse gas and other emissions today. By collaborating strategically with Chevron, we plan to improve access to fuel and infrastructure for our customers, helping grow the availability of alternative and renewable fuels while reducing emissions.”

“Achieving a lower carbon future that serves all people requires ambitious innovations and pragmatic solutions that deliver measurable results,” said Chevron’s President of Americas Products Andy Walz. “Collaborations like this one with Cummins are intended to make energy and global supply chains more affordable and reliable while helping commercial fleets who use our products and Cummins’ equipment to advance a lower carbon world. No one company or industry can go at it alone – together with Cummins, we aim to deliver progress today.”
