Page 56 of 71 May 2018 • 55 FEATURE TRUCKS & COMPONENTS Company is extending its reach in compressed natural gas processing, supply and fueling station construction management with Redeem, the first commercially available renewable natural gas (RNG), derived from landfill or farm methane and up to 70 percent cleaner than diesel fuel. In conjunction with the Cummins Westport ISX12N CNG engine launch, Clean Energy announced Zero Now, offering Redeem RNG for $1 per gallon—based on diesel gallon equivalent measure— for a year at its California stations. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board certified the ISX12N in December 2017 at CARB's optional Low NOx standard of 0.02 g/bhp-hr—equating to emissions 90 percent lower than the current EPA NOx threshold. The new engines tested at 0.01 g/bhp-hr, achieving virtually zero tailpipe emissions. "By pairing the cleanest fuel available with the cleanest engine technology, Zero Now provides heavy duty truck fleets with a true zero-emissions solution that can be easily and economically adopted today," says Clean Energy CEO Andrew Littlefair. "At a time when the price of diesel is bumping up to $3.75 a gallon in California, paying only $1 a gallon for a year for clean Redeem can go a long way to recouping the cost of a new truck. Add in the grants available in Cal- ifornia for new clean trucks, the Zero Now offer makes it a no-brainer to switch to renewable natural gas." The Redeem Dollar Deal program applied on a first come, first served basis to the first 250 qualifying trucks. They are able to fuel with Redeem RNG at Clean Energy's 23-station network throughout California. Also, Clean Energy has dedicated staff to help custom - ers navigate through the application process for grants supporting CNG-powered fleet upgrades. — Clean Energy Fuels Corp., Newport Beach, Calif., CLEAN ENERGY | REDEEM RNG To make Redeem renewable natural gas, Clean Energy captures and extracts biomethane gas that is released into the atmosphere as organic waste decomposes. Major sources of naturally-occurring methane gas are landfills and livestock farms. The gas is processed and purified, then made available exclusively to Clean Energy customers as Redeem RNG at company fueling stations. Redeem fuels hundreds of vehicle fleets across the country. Any natural gas vehicle, from an automobile to a heavy duty truck, can run on RNG. RENEWABLE NATURAL GAS ROADMAP
