Sacramento County, Applied LNG pen supply deal

Sacramento County and Applied LNG signed a multi-year contract for the supply of renewable liquefied natural gas, as the county attempts to reduce its GHG emissions. 

Keith Leech, Sacramento county chief of fleet services division, said the fleet of 60 refuse trucks consumes more than a million gallons of LNG per year.

With the new agreement in place, 50 percent of the county’s fleet will be fueled by renewable LNG, he said.

Renewable LNG reduces nitrogen oxide emissions by 87 percent and overall GHG emissions by 90 percent, and according to the California Air Resources Board (CARB), renewable LNG has the lowest life-cycle carbon footprint of all carbon-based fuels available for transportation.

Applied LNG operates three liquefaction facilities, one of which opened in October 2015, the Midlothian LNG in Texas, which has an initial production capacity of 30 million gallons of LNG per year.

At full build-out, the plant will have up to six liquefiers, for a total production capacity of 180 million gallons per year, and up to 1.5 million gallons of storage.
