Cemex Adopts RNG in California

Cemex, a  building materials company, entered into a new fueling agreement to receive ultra-clean renewable natural gas (RNG) to power 39 of Cemex US’s ready-mix and cement bulk trucks in southern California. 

The agreement was signed with Clean Energy Fuels Corp., a provider of clean fuel for the transportation market.

Cemex’s fleet will utilize Clean Energy’s public station network in Southern California to fuel approximately 300,000 gallons of RNG annually.

RNG is a negative carbon-intensity transportation fuel that lowers GHG emissions by an average of 300% versus diesel.

Clean Energy will also commission a private fueling station exclusively for Cemex’s growing RNG fleet. Located in Rialto, California, the new station will include time-fill dispensers and a dedicated fast-fill dispenser for easy and cost-effective refueling. 

The construction project is expected to be completed by the end of 2024, and Cemex trucks will begin fueling on-site soon after that. Clean Energy will be supplying RNG to the new private station, as well as operating and maintaining the site upon completion.

Transitioning part of its fleet to RNG is part of Cemex’s Future in Action program, which includes an objective to become a net-zero CO2 company by 2050. The company is projected to reduce fleet emissions by roughly 8,822 metric tons of CO2e annually.

"As leaders in the building materials industry, we recognize the pivotal role we play in building a more sustainable future. Embracing renewable fuels isn't just an option; it's an imperative,” said Francisco Rivera, Cemex US Regional President – West Region, in a statement. “What Cemex provides is essential to building communities throughout California and the country. By utilizing Clean Energy’s renewable energy resources, we accelerate our aggressive sustainability goals, inspire innovation, foster resilience, and build a legacy of responsible stewardship for generations to come."
