Chevron featured trucks with Cummins X15N natural gas engines at ACT Expo

May 28, 2024. The annual Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo brings together thousands of transportation leaders from across the globe to find lower carbon ways to move products and people.

Andy Walz, President of Chevron Americas Products, spoke at the 2024 ACT Expo. He explained how Chevron brings innovation to this field, and he explored the many ways transportation’s carbon intensity can be reduced.

Transportation is the biggest contributor to U.S. greenhouse gases. It averages 28% of total CO2 emissions each year. With advancements in engine technology and lower carbon fuels, commercial vehicles could be an important part of a lower carbon future.

Supportive collaborations are key to making progress. One example: Chevron hosted a ride-and-drive truck demonstration at this year’s ACT Expo. The demo featured trucks with Cummins X15N natural gas engines. Companies can try the trucks in their operations for up to 18 calendar days and fuel them at Chevron’s network of natural gas stations. This is one step toward lowering CO2 emissions.

“There is no one-size-fits-all solution for transportation. Multiple energy solutions are needed to meet the world’s growing demand,” said Walz.
