Clean Energy Fuels opens new RNG station in California
The new station in Carson will fuel trucks in the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, and service many truck terminals and warehouses in the area.
“This RNG station will allow more vehicles to take advantage of the cleanest fuel available today, especially in a region heavily impacted by emissions from heavy-duty trucks,” said Greg Roche, vice president of sustainability at Clean Energy.
“We are pleased to bring more fuelling choices to companies that want to reduce their carbon footprint with RNG and greatly reduce harmful greenhouses gases (GHGs).”
Located near the 405 and 710 freeways, the RNG station was designed, built, and is operated by Clean Energy. The station features high-speed dispensing for rapid truck fuelling.
RNG, derived from capturing the biogenic methane produced by the decomposition of organic waste, can reduce GHG emissions by at least 60% and up to 400% depending on the source.
Vic LaRosa, CEO of Total Transportation Solutions, said: “Our company switched to RNG trucks to help our customers, who are major retailers and shippers, achieve their sustainability goals.
“We believe in doing our part as a trucking company to help the environment by operating the cleanest trucks on the market.”
“Many members of the Harbor Trucking Association (HTA) have invested in RNG trucks to meet rigorous sustainability goals,” commented Weston LaBar, CEO of the HTA.
“We applaud Clean Energy for investing in the fuelling infrastructure so that drivers of RNG trucks can quickly and conveniently fuel with the cleanest commercially available fuel.”
