Walmart Teams With Cummins, Chevron to Put 15-Liter Renewable Natural Gas Engine on Road

By Colin Kellaher


Walmart Inc. on Tuesday said it is rolling out its first heavy-duty truck powered by a 15-liter natural-gas engine, making it the first of its kind to hit the road in North America.

The Bentonville, Ark., retail giant said the truck, the first of five it is incorporating into its private fleet, has an X15N engine supplied by Cummins Inc. It will be fueled by Chevron Corp. with compressed natural gas linked to renewable natural gas, which is produced when biomethane from decomposing organic matter is captured, treated and placed into the network.

Walmart, Cummins and Chevron last year unveiled plans to collaborate on the 15-liter natural-gas engine as one of several technologies Walmart is testing to reach zero emissions in its fleet.

The retailer, which has set a goal to achieve zero emissions in its operations by 2040, said the truck will make its inaugural trip from Indiana to California, with stops along the way to refuel at Chevron stations.
