Cummins Inc. and Chevron have announced a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to leverage complimentary positioning in hydrogen, natural gas and other lower carbon fuel value chains.

“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,” said Chevron’s president of Americas Products Andy Walz.

Cummins and Chevron each have contributed to the research, development and deployment of alternative fuel systems and technologies. They will work together to enable the commercial development at scale of alternative fuels production, transportation and delivery systems for industrial and commercial markets, with target consumption by transportation vehicles of the type manufactured by Cummins.

“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,” said Jennifer Rumsey, president and CEO of Cummins.

The new collaboration focuses on hydrogen, natural gas, and other alternative lower carbon intensity fuels such as renewable gasoline blend, biodiesel, renewable diesel, compressed natural gas, and other liquid renewables to expand commercial adoption.
