Amazon is expected to launch a self-service gas pump that will self-clean in an effort to cut emissions, according to a report from Axios.
The automaker is working on the project to install a “gas scrubber” in a new facility in the company’s Seattle, Washington, facility, according the report, which is based on people briefed on the plans.
The self-serve pumps are being developed as part of a $2 billion program Amazon started in 2018 to develop a selfless service to curb climate change.
Amazon said the pump is expected by the end of 2019.
Amazon has been testing the gas scrubber for several years in the Seattle facility.
The project has raised concerns in Congress over the environmental impact of the fuel injectors, which are used to store compressed natural gas.
The fuel injector industry and other environmentalists have long called for more stringent regulation of the gas injectors in order to limit the pollution from oil and gas.
Amazon is the third major automaker to announce a self cleaning program, after General Motors and General Electric.
In 2018, Ford Motor announced a program that allows owners to turn off the air conditioners in their vehicles in order for the vehicles to be cleaner and save on fuel.
