Columbia Gas launches environmentally friendly alternative fuel vehicle pilot program


Columbia Gas officials announced today the launch of an alternative fuel vehicle pilot program that uses an adsorbed natural gas (ANG) platform developed by Ingevity Corporation, called NeuFuel™, that, when used with renewable natural gas (RNG), has the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions up to 130 percent.
