New Cities to Power Refuse Trucks with Clean Energy's RNG

-Clean Energy Fuels Corp.(Nasdaq: CLNE ) announced an increased demand for renewable natural gas (RNG) from the refuse sector, particularly in California, where refuse trucks are fueled by the very solid waste they haul.

The City of Fresno signed a two-year agreement with Clean Energy for renewable liquified natural gas (RLNG) to power approximately 140 refuse trucks with its Redeem™ brand RNG for an anticipated annual total of 1.6 million LNG gallons, the equivalent of just over one million GGEs.

Redeem is the first commercially available RNG vehicle fuel. It is derived from capturing biogenic methane that is naturally sourced by the decomposition of dairy and landfill waste. Redeem enables at least 70 percent reduction in carbon emissions when displacing diesel or gasoline, according to California Air Resources Board (CARB) estimates.
