Clean Energy Redeem's RNG powers Overseas Freight's deployment of first commercial near-zero trucks

Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (Nasdaq: CLNE) announced it will supply Redeem™ renewable natural gas (RNG) to intermodal trucking company Overseas Freight as part of an emissions reduction initiative in the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles.

In preparation for upcoming regulations outlined in the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP), Overseas Freight obtained Prop 1B funding for five Kenworth T-680 trucks outfitted with the new Cummins-Westport (CWI) near-zero ISX12N natural gas engine, which achieves the lowest emission levels in North America while delivering diesel caliber performance with reliability and durability. The ISX12N is certified by California Air Resources Board (CARB) to reduce smog-forming NOx emissions by 90 percent compared to the current engine standard.
