Clean Energy Fuels announced its El Paso, Texas, America’s Natural Gas Highway station has opened.
This enables heavy-duty LNG truck fueling along the transcontinental Interstate 10 highway between Los Angeles, Calif., and Houston, Texas. Additional natural gas stations have opened or are under construction to support Clean Energy’s growing portfolio of natural gas fuel customers in the heavy-duty trucking, refuse and ready-mix market segments.
Under a previously-announced fueling agreement, trucking company EJ Madison hauling for Cardinal Health will fuel at the newly-opened LNG station and Chavez Trucking have signed a multi-year fueling agreement with Clean Energy to open an LNG Station in West Sacramento, California.
Under the agreement Chavez Trucking is scheduled to deploy 15 heavy-duty LNG trucks to haul bulk aggregate materials such as road-building and construction materials. Once fully-deployed this fleet is forecasted to consume approximately 210,000 DGEs of LNG annually. This would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 363 metric tons annually.
