RNG gas to help clean up California ports
Clean Energy Fuels Corp. will supply Redeem renewable natural gas (RNG) to intermodal trucking company Overseas Freight as part of an emissions reduction initiative in the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles.
In preparation for upcoming regulations outlined in the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP), Overseas Freight obtained California state funding for five Kenworth T-680 trucks outfitted with the new Cummins-Westport (CWI) near-zero ISX12N natural gas engine, which achieves the lowest emission levels in North America, alongside reliability and durability. The ISX12N is certified by California Air Resources Board (CARB) to reduce smog-forming NOx emissions by 90% compared to the current engine standard.
“America Lung Association State of the Air Report cited Los Angeles and Long Beach with having the worst air quality in the state. Overseas Freight is taking a positive step forward in reducing air pollution in the region by deploying the cleanest truck technology that can be easily and economically adopted,” said Greg Roche, vice president, Clean Energy.
Overseas Freight has contracted for RNG fuel through the Clean Energy Redeem $1 Deal, which guarantees a fixed fuel price of one dollar per gallon for a year. Redeem allows customers to achieve a reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by at least 70% versus diesel, said Clean Energy.
Organically sourced from dairy and landfill waste, Redeem is the cleanest commercially available fuel for trucking, with some RNG sources even reducing GHG emissions by over 100%, added Clean Energy.
