Ryder to Fuel Fleets with 100 Percent Renewable Natural Gas in California
Ryder and Clean Energy announced an agreement for Ryder to switch the fuel at their stations in Orange and Fontana, California, to Clean Energy’s Redeem renewable natural gas (RNG). The fuel at the two stations will be available in both CNG and LNG to individual and public fleet vehicles. As part of the fuel agreement, Clean Energy also will be providing fuel station maintenance services at Ryder’s natural gas fueling stations in Fontana and Orange, California.
“Our decision to use 100% Renewable Natural Gas is based upon our ongoing commitment to ensuring we are delivering solutions that help our customers reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said Scott Perry, Vice President of Supply Management and Global Fuel Products, Ryder. Clean Energy says by making the switch to Redeem, Ryder is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 6,300 metric tons per year using current fuel volumes.
Redeem fuel is procured from over 15 biomethane production facilities, including two owned and operated by Clean Energy. Clean Energy is on track to deliver 40 million gallons of Redeem in 2015.
