Waste Management - Natural Gas Fleet

  1. 1. WasteManagement’sNatural Gas FleetLynn MorganManager of Public AffairsJanuary 29, 2013
  2. 2. An Early Adopter of NGV CNG, LNG Vehicles in Fleet 2000 1500 1000 500 0
  3. 3. Tightening EPA Diesel Emission LimitsHeavy emission control equipment reduces payload Weight needed to comply with new regulations 2004 117 pounds 2007 1,000 2010 900 TOTAL 2,017 pounds
  4. 4. Added trucks needed to transport 1,000 tonsPre-2004 v. 2010
  5. 5. 2008 Forces of Change • EPA regulations reducing efficiency • Customer demand for cleaner trucks Example: City of Seattle • New generation of engines and appealing warranties
  6. 6. 2007 Forces of Change • EPA regulations reducing efficiency • Customer demand for cleaner trucks -- City of Seattle contract required 100+ alternative fuel trucks • New generation of natural gas engines carried appealing warranties, but were expensive and unproven – Were they the answer?
  7. 7. NGV: A Clear Winner• Maintained Payload• Lower Fuel Costs• Domestic Fuel Sources• Maintenance Savings• Quieter• Customer Appeal• Lower emissions
  8. 8. Emissions Reduction The Benefits: • Smog-producing NOx emissions are reduced up to 50% compared to 2010 diesel engines and even more compared to the older diesel engines we are replacing; • Greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) are reduced up to 25 percent over standard diesel engines; and • When we can use LNG or CNG derived from landfill gas versus standard pipeline gas GHG can be reduced by over 90%.
  9. 9. WM’s NGV Opportunity • WM has 32,000 vehicles • Over 18,000 are Class 8 collection trucks • 12,000 support vehicles including heavy off-road equipment used at landfills, delivery vans and supervisor trucks
  10. 10. WM’s Fleet Goal: Reduce emissions and increase fuelefficiency by 15% by 2020 • WM will replace 80% of its new class 8 vehicles with natural gas trucks • We will build 25 natural gas fueling stations each year • We will purchase 700-1,000 natural gas vehicles each year
  11. 11. Current Status of WMs Green Fleet Transition • 2,000 natural gas trucks on the road today - the largest fleet of heavy duty natural gas trucks in N. America • In 2012 we achieved our 2020 emissions and fuel efficiency goals -- saving 350 million gallons of fuel and reducing 3.5 million metric tons of carbon dioxide • We are investing in new natural gas fueling stations to support our fleet:  40 stations were operational by year end 2012.  13 new CNG fueling stations opened In 2012 – 7 more are under construction  15 stations have public access & another 7 have public access for pre-approved customers
  12. 12. 2012 Deployment• 2,000 NGV trucks, the largest heavy • In 2012 we achieved our 2020 duty NGV fleet in North America emissions and fuel efficiency goals -- saving 350 million gallons of fuel• 40 natural gas fueling stations and reducing 3.5 million metric tons of carbon dioxide ©2012 Waste Management Page 12
  13. 13. The Quest for Renewable Fuels
  14. 14. WM’s Strategy:Extract value from the materials we handle We manage over 100 million tons of feedstock each year that can be used to create electricity, fuel and green chemicals New technologies will let us tap this valuable resource ©2012 Waste Management 14
  15. 15. The Link Feedstock • WM manages over 100 million tons of materials annually • 30-35 million tons are organic in nature (excluding recycled paper, cardboard, etc) Processing • The organics we manage can be converted to biogas • WM is investing in technologies to convert waste materials into electricity, fuel and green chemicals Off-Take • WM’s 8,000 heavy duty vehicles each use an average of 8,000 gallons of diesel/year ©2012 Waste Management Page 15
  16. 16. Biogas / Technology Investments
  17. 17. Landfill Gas: The Low Hanging Fruit • Anaerobic decomposition of Landfill Gas Collection System organic waste creates biogenic gas • Gas is about half methane and half carbon dioxide. • Quantities are 450 to 550 BTU per cubic foot of landfill gas • It’s a medium BTU gas
  18. 18. Landfill Gas to Fuel • A joint venture with Linde North America resulted in the world’s largest plant to convert landfill gas to ultra low-carbon liquefied natural gas. • Carbon emissions are 97% lower than diesel. • The facility produces up to 13,000 gallons of LNG a day and powers over 300 WM natural gas trucks in California. • $15.5 million capital investment and $2 million in government grant funding
  19. 19. Future Plans • Natural gas engines are flexible and can be powered by other renewable fuels such as bio-methane • WM will continue to experiment with Class 6 & 7 electric vehicles and hybrids as the technology becomes economically viable. • Transitioning off-road, heavy equipment to alternative fuels. • Testing four diesel-electric hybrid bulldozers that have a dramatically different life cycle than our traditional power train tractors as well as improved fuel efficiency. WM considers natural gas trucks to be a bridge to future technologies. We are striving to move towards a true zero emissions vehicle (ZEV)
