LCFS Is Key

Long Beach says that in 2003, it became the first city in the United States to use LNG for its street sweepers. It’s been bio-based LNG since this past October.

“The switch to RNG is expected to save the City approximately $27,000 per year on its use of more than 826,000 gallons of LNG, thanks in part to California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) credits,” states a release.
