UPS, Clean Energy expand RLNG agreement

US-based logistics giant UPS informed it has expanded its deal with Clean Energy Fuels to use up to 500,000 gallon equivalents of renewable liquefied natural gas (RLNG) annually in Texas.

UPS stations in Houston and Mesquite will dispense the RLNG to a fleet of about 140 UPS tractors. The deal builds on UPS’s current agreement with Clean Energy Fuels whereby UPS is using approximately 1.5 million gallon equivalents of renewable compressed natural gas (RCNG) annually in California, UPS said on Wednesday.

Redeem by Clean Energy is a renewable natural gas program that sources RNG, also known as biomethane, using a variety of methods. It can be used as CNG or LNG and is derived from renewable sources, including decomposing organic waste in landfills, wastewater treatment and agriculture, according to the statement.

The deal is part of an initiative announced last year by UPS to expand its use of RNG natural gas in UPS’s alternative fuel fleet.

UPS claims it operates one of the largest private alternative fuel fleets in the U.S. Its fleet includes more than 6,840 all-electric, hybrid electric, hydraulic hybrid, CNG, LNG, propane and light-weight fuel-saving composite body vehicles.
