City of Los Angeles Contracts Applied LNG to Supply Renewable Natural Gas for Fleet's Natural Gas Vehicles

By NGV Global.

The City of Los Angeles has taken another step toward meeting Southern California’s stringent air-quality goals by contracting Applied LNG to supply renewable liquefied natural gas (RLNG) to fuel their fleet of natural gas vehicles. The California-based energy solutions provider will deliver fuel to multiple Los Angeles LNG/LCNG stations where it will be dispensed as LNG or compressed natural gas (CNG).

Renewable Natural Gas (RNG or biomethane) is a naturally formed gas captured at landfills, wastewater treatment facilities and anaerobic digestion plants, that would otherwise have been released into the atmosphere. Derived from the natural breakdown of organic matter, the methane is captured, purified and upgraded to pipeline-quality natural gas for dispensing at fueling stations.
