Clean Energy Fuels Corp. announced new and extended contracts for more than 58 million gallons of its Redeem brand of renewable natural gas in key business segments including heavy-duty trucking, solid waste and public transit.

Clean Energy’s Redeem was the first commercially available RNG vehicle fuel, derived from capturing the biogenic methane produced by the decomposition of organic waste from dairies, landfills and wastewater treatment plants, according to the Newport Beach, Calif.-based company.

Among the contracting fleets were:

  • Food Express Inc., based in Arcadia, Calif., which will build a fast-fill station in Maywood, Calif., that will deliver an estimated 4.7 million gallons of Redeem for its fleet of 60 RNG trucks. The deal also includes an operations and maintenance agreement for the station, which is expected to be completed by mid-2021.
  • Pacific Green Trucking Inc., which operates drayage vehicles at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, Calif., is adding 39 new RNG trucks to its fleet through the Chevron and Clean Energy partnership Adopt-A-Port program. Pacific Green has committed to purchase about 2.3 million gallons of Redeem.
  • Waste Connections, the third-largest waste company in North America, has inked a multiyear extended supply contract for about 8 million gallons of Redeem to meet its growing RNG truck fleet needs. A long-term customer of Clean Energy, Waste Connections has expanded its fleet of 110 waste trucks to 100% RNG at its San Jose, Calif., hauling company. — Transport Topics
