Chevron Corp. announced it is partnering with California natural gas retailer Clean Energy Fuels Corp. on Adopt-a-Port, an initiative that provides truck operators serving the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach with carbon-negative renewable natural gas to reduce emissions.

Chevron will provide funding for Adopt-a-Port and supply renewable natural gas (RNG) to Clean Energy stations near the ports. Truck operators participating in the program, which supports the ports’ Clean Trucks Program and Clean Air Action Plan, agree to fuel up at the Clean Energy station. Chevron’s funding will allow truck operators to subsidize the cost of buying new RNG-powered trucks, according to the San Ramon, Calif.-based company.

Clean Energy, will manage the program.

“Along with other recent investments like CalBio, selling branded renewable diesel in San Diego County and piloting EV charging stations, Adopt-a-Port further demonstrates Chevron’s commitment to increasing renewables in support of our business, continuing our overall aim to provide the affordable, reliable and ever-cleaner energy,” Mike Vomund, Chevron vice president of Americas Products-West, said in a release. — Transport Topics
