Clean Energy Fuels Corp. says it has initiated production of its Redeem transportation fuel – a 100% renewable biomethane product – at a new site outside Memphis, Tenn. The company is already selling the fuel from this facility, which joins two other Redeem production locations, in Texas and Michigan.
The Tennessee facility is located at Republic Services' landfill in North Shelby and is forecasted to achieve an annual production rate of approximately 3.7 million GGE of Redeem once fully operational. Redeem can be made available to Clean Energy customers nationwide.
‘The success of our North Shelby project will enable more of America's fleets to fuel with the cleanest and cheapest alternative fuel commercially available today,’ says Harrison Clay, president of Clean Energy subsidiary Clean Energy Renewable Fuels. ‘We believe this expanded capacity will enable our team to build on last year's successful delivery of 14 million GGE of Redeem.’
‘Redeem is a critical differentiator for Clean Energy, and we're excited to continue to expand the availability of this fuel to our customers,’ adds Clean Energy president and CEO Andrew J. Littlefair.
