Pacific Green Trucking to Use RNG
Pacific Green Trucking continues to expand its clean fleet in the Port of Los Angeles, signing a fueling agreement with Clean Energy for an estimated 1 million gallons of renewable natural gas (RNG) to power 61 new natural gas trucks.
“Reducing our carbon emissions and improving air quality near the ports is a top priority for Pacific Green and we’re doing it one truck at a time,” said Vicente Zarate, president, Pacific Green Trucking in a statement. “RNG is the most immediate and cost-efficient way to make the necessary environmental changes for the trucking industry.”
Clean Energy Fuels Corp. announced several fuel and infrastructure contracts to meet the growing demand for renewable natural gas.
The contracts include the following:
- Clean Energy’s Adopt-a-Port program with Chevron has more fleets switching to RNG and the energy company has committed to providing a total of $28 million of financing to trucking companies serving the ports region as well as owner-operators to purchase new RNG heavy-duty trucks. Over 200 heavy-duty trucks have been contracted through the program and over 400 more are being processed, which will help significantly reduce GHG emissions.
- Another 46 RNG-fueled trucks were deployed through the Adopt-a-Port program, including NGL Logistics, TDS Logistics, Mortimer & Wallace, Pacific 9, Cota Capital American Pacific Forwarders, Arete Logistics, Paul Suh, Sang’s Express, Pacifica Trucks, Pacific Expressway, Yanxiu Li, IML Transport, Supra National Express, and Atlas Marine.
