Cummins and Chevron announced on Tuesday an expanded partnership that focuses on lower carbon fuels. 

"At Cummins, we are working to bring our Destination Zero strategy to life, and we recognize we can't do this alone," says Jennifer Rumsey, president and CEO of Cummins. "Through Accelera by Cummins, we have leading zero-emissions technologies for commercial and industrial applications, and we continue to offer a broad portfolio of engine-based solutions that reduce greenhouse gas and other emissions today. 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."

The memorandum of understanding announced will now cover liquid renewable fuels such as renewable gasoline blends, biodiesel and renewable diesel in addition to hydrogen and natural gas. 

"Achieving a lower carbon future that serves all people requires ambitious innovations and pragmatic solutions that deliver measureable results," says Andy Walz, president of Chevron Americas. "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."

The companies will contribute to the research, development and global deployment of alternative fuels systems and technologies, Cummins and Chevron say, focusing on developing at scale alternative fuels for the types of vehicles manufactured by Cummins.
