Clean Energy Fuels Corp. announced new and extended contracts for more than 58 million gallons of Redeem™ renewable natural gas to accommodate the continued demand for the sustainable fuel from key business segments including heavy duty trucking, solid waste and public transit.
“Our customers have continued to operate their essential businesses at a very high level, despite significant challenges from the COVID 19 pandemic,” said Nate Jensen, senior vice president renewable fuels, Clean Energy. “This means that essential employees are able to get to work, refuse is collected every day, and goods movement continues uninterrupted throughout the U.S. Our customers have demonstrated their commitment to sustainable transportation by enthusiastically embracing our ultra-low carbon Redeem. In response, we have significantly augmented our supplies of renewable natural gas and expect to provide ever-increasing volumes of the clean, sustainable fuel to our customers.”
Specializing in the transportation of food grade dry bulk commodities in the Western U.S., Food Express, Inc. has contracted Clean Energy to build a station in Maywood (California) that will deliver an estimated 4.7 million gallons of Redeem for its fleet of 60 biomethane trucks. The deal also includes an operations and maintenance agreement for the station, which is expected to be completed by mid-2021.
Pacific Green Trucking, Inc., which operates drayage vehicles in the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, is adding 39 new renewable natural gas trucks to its fleet through the Chevron and Clean Energy partnership Adopt-A-Port program. In migrating from diesel fuel to biomethane, Pacific Green has committed to an approximate 2.3 million gallons of Redeem.
Several waste companies and operators have also signed supply contracts with Clean Energy, including Waste Connections, Atlas Disposal, CR&R Environmental Services and the City of Mesa (Arizona).
Moreover, Linden Bulk Transportation LLC, National Cement and the Town of Smithtown on Long Island (New York) have acquired new natural gas trucks through Clean Energy’s Zero Now program.
