Government Leaders Mark Opening of New Hartford CNG Fueling Station

Clean Energy, together with leading Connecticut refuse and recycling companies All Waste/USA Hauling and Recycling/All American Waste, celebrated the grand opening of their new CNG fueling station located in Hartford, Conn. “Clean Energy commends our joint venture partners here in Hartford—All Waste, USA Hauling and Recycling, and All American Waste—for helping make this new public access CNG fueling station a reality,” said Andrew J. Littlefair, president and CEO of Clean Energy. In addition to fueling a new fleet of CNG refuse trucks operated by the partner companies, the Clean Energy-constructed public access station will provide 24/7 support to other area CNG fleets such as AT&T, Hartford Yellow Cab, Metro Taxi and Greater Hartford Transit District. Speakers at the event included: Pedro Segarra, Mayor, City of Hartford; John Larson, Member, U.S. House of Representatives; and Daniel Esty, Commissioner, Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. Speaking for All Waste, USA Hauling and Recycling, and All American Waste, Robert A. Norton, Jr. said, “Because it is open to the public, the station will serve to provide a significant portion of the infrastructure to help our state be a leader in the use of cleaner-burning, American-produced natural gas for vehicles.”

New Clean Energy CNG Station Opens at Baltimore/Washington Airport 

Clean Energy recently opened its new public access CNG fueling station at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. Owned and operated 24/7 by Clean Energy, the facility provides CNG fuel for public and private vehicles and fleets, including airport shuttle buses, shared-ride vans, taxis, trucks and personal-use CNG vehicles. Among key Clean Energy station users will be a new fleet of CNG airport parking shuttles operated by IMPARK. Government officials, airport, environmental quality and business leaders attended the station-opening event. “This CNG station provides important fuel options for BWI Marshall Airport, our partners, and our neighboring communities,” explained Wayne S. Pennell, Chief Operating Officer for BWI Marshall Airport. Abigail Ross Hopper, Acting Director of the Maryland Energy Administration, said, “Smart investments in alternative transportation technologies improve air quality in Maryland and expand our vehicle energy options. This station provides Maryland drivers with domestically produced fuel that is expected to reduce drivers’ greenhouse gas emissions.” “Airport and allied ground transportation fleets have become magnets for natural gas vehicle usage,” commented Mark Riley, Clean Energy Vice President, Eastern Region, adding, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to provide the benefits of natural gas fuel to the Baltimore/Washington International Airport area and the neighboring communities.”

Clean Energy Helps Sacramento Become the First U.S. City to Refuel on Food Waste

By collecting and diverting food waste from a local landfill, two companies in Sacramento, California—Clean World Partners and Atlas Disposal Industries—have opened the Sacramento Biodigester, the first closed-loop organic waste project in the country. The system’s biogas is “refined” into renewable natural gas (RNG), also known as biomethane, enabling a portion of Atlas Disposal’s refuse fleet to be powered by the very waste it hauls. The RNG is stored in tanks and is dispensed into vehicles via the adjacent Clean Energy Fuels CNG station—also the first RNG refueling station in California. As Atlas Disposal upgrades its fleet of older diesel refuse vehicles to new CNG trucks, the transition to waste-based RNG was a logical next step. The company’s Sustainability Director Andrea Stephenson said, “As our fleet ages, we’re going to continue to replace our conventional diesels with compressed natural gas vehicles that can run on either pipeline gas or waste-derived fuel.” Once fully scaled, the facility will generate more than 700,000 diesel gallon equivalents (DGEs) of RNG annually, which will be distributed, via the Clean Energy public access refueling station, to CNG vehicles owned by Atlas as well as other public and private fleets, including some of Sacramento’s municipal vehicles. The California Air Resources Board recently concluded that renewable natural gas vehicle fuel produced from food waste represents net negative greenhouse gas emissions (actually removes greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.)
