Moreover, about the relevance of the expanded partnership for Chevron, Andy Walz, president of the company’s division for fuels and lubricants, said. “This latest expansion with Brightmark advances our strategy of higher returns and lower carbon.”

He also remarked. “Opportunities like these not only reaffirm our commitment to investing in ways that are good for the environment; our consumers and our stockholders, they also bolster our previously announced objective to increase RNG volumes tenfold by 2025 over 2020 volumes.”

On the other hand, Bob Powell, founder and chief executive officer of Brightmark, said. “Brightmark’s expanded partnership with Chevron is another positive step forward in the decarbonization of the farming industry.”

Finally, he also commented. “Our carbon-negative projects are successfully reimagining waste; and also, delivering significant environmental benefits, while improving economics for our dairy farm partners. We look forward to executing on these new RNG projects with Chevron; and partnering with dairy farmers to expand our RNG footprint across the country.”
