Clean Energy Fuels said Thursday it launched a new fueling station in Whittier, California as the firm continues to develop its CNG and LNG station network across the US.
The Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts (LACSD) owns the new station while Clean Energy built the facility and will operate it.
The US supplier will provide renewable natural gas (RNG) to fuel heavy-duty trucks and other medium-duty vehicles in the region, including LACSD’s vehicles, it said in a statement.
RNG comes from capturing the biogenic methane produced by the decomposition of organic waste from dairies, landfills, and wastewater treatment plants.
Redeem reduces greenhouse gas emissions by at least 70 percent, and even up to 300 percent depending on the source of the RNG, making it a carbon-negative fuel, Clean Energy claims.
The station replaces an older facility. The firm expects the new station to dispense over 300,000 gallons per year, a 50 percent increase from the prior facility.
Clean Energy delivers RNG through CNG and LNG to its network of about 540 fueling stations across the US but also Canada.
In addition, the firm also owns natural gas liquefication facilities in California and Texas.
