Caterpillar has announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Canada-based Certarus, a low carbon energy business, as the world’s largest construction OEM looks to lower carbon emissions.
The MOU outlines key areas where the two companies will work together to advance the use of lower carbon fuels, including conventional and renewable natural gas and hydrogen.
“Working with Certarus to develop future lower carbon solutions for the industries we serve is a natural extension of our relationship,” said Joe Creed, Group President, Energy & Transportation. “We believe our teamwork will combine valuable expertise from our companies to deliver comprehensive customer solutions for the energy transition.”
Certarus displaces carbon intensive fuels with compressed natural gas (CNG), renewable natural gas (RNG), and hydrogen to delivering low carbon energy solutions across North America.
The company’s website says that, “Through the compression, transportation, and integration of clean energy - we provide an on-the road solution that connects customers with clean burning bulk fuel options wherever they operate.”
Curtis Philippon, CEO of Certarus, said, “Together we will develop the tools to enable commercial customers to reduce their carbon intensity and achieve environmental and economic benefits. Through our collaboration we are quickly becoming leaders in the integration of hydrogen as a clean energy solution.”
