During the first year of operation, the plant is anticipated to produce approximately 4 million diesel gallon equivalents of renewable natural gas annually, which could fuel about 260 trucks for a year. Production, expected to begin in late 2013, will steadily increase to more than 5.7 million diesel gallon equivalents annually during the first 10 years of operations.
“We are delighted to again partner with Republic for production of sustainable renewable natural gas. This project will help Clean Energy achieve its goal of supplying renewable natural gas fuel to an increasing number of natural gas vehicles operating across America,” said Andrew J. Littlefair, Clean Energy president and CEO.
