Sustainable Trucking Grows Through Circle K and Trillium Partnership
The Refined Products Agreement leads to a creative, low-carbon solution for renewable natural gas.
Musket and Trillium have entered into an agreement with Circle K to develop sustainable trucking in California.
A 2020 supply partnership between Musket and Circle K created a joint purchasing agreement and allowed Circle K to rapidly grow its truck fleet and maximize flexibility in fuel supply.
By developing this relationship, Trillium will supply renewable natural gas to Circle K’s in-house truck fleet in California.
“We anticipate significant reductions in carbon and exhaust emissions with this initial deployment of Circle K’s CNG trucks in Southern California,” said JP Fjeld-Hansen, vice president of Trillium and Musket. “The fact that we have integrated an ESG initiative into a business venture based on fine products is a testament to the creativity and flexibility of team members on both sides of the equation.”
RNG is produced by capturing the methane emitted by the decomposition of organic waste in landfills, sewage and on farms. This process prevents emissions from escaping into the environment.
Musket and Trillium are members of the Love’s Family of Companies. They are the primary network of travel stops with 560 locations in 41 states.
