Biomethane Fuel for the Airport’s Fleet Vehicles
As Pact to Support Public-Access Stations Extended
Clean Energy Fuels said today that the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport in Texas is the first airport outside California to use the company’s Redeem brand RNG/renewable natural gas.
“The use of RNG has the potential to reduce DFW fleet emissions by approximately 70%,” Clean Energy says.
The company and airport also extended their current operations and maintenance agreement for DFW’s public-access natural gas fueling stations, which dispense approximately 2 million GGE/gasoline gallon equivalents per year.
Cleaner and ‘More Economical’
“We continue to see strong interest in our Redeem RNG product,” Clean Energy Renewables vp and general manager Tyler Henn said in a release.
“Businesses and municipalities are learning that by fueling with RNG you not only get a cleaner fuel but you get a fuel that is domestically produced and more economical.”
“DFW has a strong commitment to sustainability, and we will continue to look for innovative ways to reduce our emissions, while improving the customer experience,” DFW environmental affairs VP Robert Horton says in the Clean Energy announcement.
‘Good Business Sense’
“Using RNG for our fleet of vehicles will help us reduce our carbon footprint and our operating costs. It makes good business sense.”
Clean Energy notes that conducted the design, build, operations and maintenance for the airport’s first natural gas fueling station in 2000 and was selected to build and operate the second station there in 2011.
