Cummins Inc. and Chevron U.S.A. Inc. have unveiled a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to further their joint efforts in the realm of hydrogen, natural gas, and other low-carbon fuel solutions. This announcement builds upon their prior collaboration on hydrogen and renewable natural gas, now extending to other renewable fuels like biodiesel and renewable gasoline blends.

Cummins,  with its headquarters in Columbus, Indiana, U.S.A., is a global powerhouse in power technology, offers a wide range of power solutions, from internal combustion engines to hybrid systems.

Jennifer Rumsey, CEO of Cummins, emphasised the company’s commitment to its Destination Zero strategy. “Our collaboration with Chevron aims to enhance fuel and infrastructure accessibility for our customers, promoting the use of alternative and renewable fuels to decrease emissions, Rumsey said.

Chevron’s President of Americas Products, Andy Walz, highlighted the importance of innovative yet practical solutions in achieving a low-carbon future. “Collaborative efforts, such as our partnership with Cummins, are pivotal in ensuring energy affordability and reliability. Together, we’re dedicated to aiding commercial fleets in transitioning to a greener future.”

Both Cummins and Chevron have a rich history of pioneering alternative fuel technologies and systems. Their combined expertise will focus on the large-scale commercial development of alternative fuels, targeting transportation vehicles produced by Cummins. Key areas of collaboration include hydrogen, natural gas, renewable gasoline blends, biodiesel, and other renewable fuels.
