Energy solutions provider, Applied LNG has been awarded a contract by the City of Los Angeles to supply renewable liquefied natural gas (RLNG) to fuel their fleet of natural gas vehicles.
The fuel will be delivered to multiple Los Angeles LNG/LCNG stations where it will be dispensed as RLNG or converted into compressed renewable natural gas, Applied LNG said in a statement on Monday.
The renewable LNG is derived from biomethane or biogas naturally generated by the decomposition of organic waste, then processed, purified, liquefied and transported to the City of Los Angeles fueling stations.
The expected volume will be over 5.6 million LNG gallons per year reducing greenhouse gasses by 90 percent compared to that of traditional diesel and gasoline, the company said.
Applied LNG owns and operates three LNG production plants, one located south of Dallas, in the city of Midlothian, Texas and two in located in Topock, Arizona, with a total production capacity of 90,000 million gallons per year.
