This week, Clean Energy Fuels Corp. announced a new transportation fuel brand dubbed Redeem – a 100% renewable natural gas fuel produced from waste streams such as landfills, large dairies and sewage plants.
Clean Energy is producing Redeem at biomethane production facilities in Dallas and Canton, Mich., and it is currently building a third facility in Millington, Tenn. Clean Energy also sources biomethane from third parties to market and distribute as Redeem vehicle fuel.
‘Our goal is to produce and distribute 15 million gallons of Redeem in our first year,’ says Andrew J. Littlefair, president and CEO of Clean Energy.
The company says it intends to provide Redeem fuel through its 35 public-access natural gas refueling stations in California, as well as directly to fleet customers nationwide.
‘Redeem is the lowest-carbon-footprint fuel commercially available and the only affordable renewable fuel for heavy-duty trucks,’ says Harrison Clay, president of Clean Energy subsidiary Clean Energy Renewable Fuels. ‘We believe this creates an environmental and economic incentive for companies inside and outside California who are looking to make a major reduction in the greenhouse gas emissions from their fleet operations while still saving on their fuel bill.’
