The goal of Clean Energy Zero Now program is to convert natural gas to replace diesel fuel in heavy truck engines. There was an overwhelmingly positive response to the benefits provided by fleets that used the new trucks. The guaranteed fuel discount is a huge bonus as it decreases the costs to operating a trucking business. The fuel is derived from biogenic methane captured from landfills and water waste plants and converted into usable energy. It allows for a 70% reduction in carbon emissions when displacing gas or diesel. It’s win-win for everyone.
- Clean Energy’s Zero Now program works to make a natural gas heavy-duty truck equal to that of diesel when purchased new.
- There is a positive reaction to the program and fleets are benefiting from the advantages.
- These vehicles use biogenic methane sourced from landfills and waste water treatment plants.
“The demand for clean, cost-effective renewable natural gas (RNG) as a transportation fuel continues to rise as Clean Energy Fuels Corp announced it has reached agreements with trucking firms to lease or purchase more than 250 new heavy-duty trucks, fueled by its Redeem RNG.”
