Renewable Propane for Vermont

On Tuesday, April 12th, the Vermont Rail System team was on-site at the Ray Energy terminal in Hampton, New York, to welcome the first delivery of Renewable Propane to our region. We are honored to play a part in delivering the first rail car loaded with renewable propane to our customers’ terminal in Hampton.

Renewable propane is made with waste residues and sustainably sourced materials – including agricultural waste products, cooking oil, and meat fats – rather than fossil fuels like natural gas. In many cases, it is produced as a co-product of biodiesel production.

Renewable propane’s carbon footprint is less than almost any alternative and proclaims to have the capability of significantly reducing CO2 emissions even when compared to electric vehicles. There were several propane-powered vehicles on-site at the event for attendees to see firsthand and learn just how clean and efficient propane can be.

The Vermont Rail System welcomes the opportunity to assist customers as they transition toward cleaner energy sources. We congratulate the team at Ray Energy on their progress with this initiative. We believe that if we couple renewable propane (one of the cleanest energy sources) with rail transportation (one of the most efficient ways to move freight), the result will be a cleaner future for all.
