Circle K, Trillium, and Musket expand California RNG partnership
In the United States (US), the Love's Family of Companies members Musket Corporation (Musket), and Trillium Transportation Fuels, LLC (Trillium), have entered into an agreement with global convenience store and filling station operator Circle K to expand sustainable trucking in California (CA).
A 2020 supply partnership between Musket and Circle K created a joint purchasing agreement and allowed Circle K to rapidly grow its trucking fleet and maximize fuel sourcing flexibility.
Expanding upon that relationship, Trillium and Circle K have entered into an agreement in which Trillium will provide renewable natural gas (RNG) to Circle K’s in-house trucking fleet in California (CA).
We’re projecting significant carbon and tailpipe emissions reductions through this initial rollout of Circle K’s CNG trucks in southern California. The fact that we’ve incorporated an ESG initiative into a refined products-based business venture speaks to the creativity and flexibility of team members on both sides of the equation, said JP Fjeld-Hansen, VP of Trillium and Musket.
Musket, Trillium, and Circle K’s growing partnership allow for improved daily efficiency and for Circle K to lower its fleet’s emissions through the consumption of ultra-low-carbon RNG sourced from dairy facilities.
We’re excited about this opportunity to further our partnership with Musket and Trillium. It is a notable step as part of our sustainability journey. Through practical changes in our supply chain, we are on the path to deliver on our commitments as a global leader in convenience and fuel and reduce the environmental footprint of our operations, said Louise Warner, SVP of Global Fuels for Alimentation Couche-Tard, which owns and operates the Circle K brand globally.
