Newport Beach, California -based Clean Energy Fuels Corp. says it has reached agreements to supply alternative fuels, which it calls renewable natural gas (RNG), to several solid waste and recycling collection fleets.

According to Clean Energy, which prepares and markets compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG), the City of Pasadena in California has entered into a multi-year RNG supply agreement for an anticipated 1.5 million gallons to fuel its fleet of more than 50 CNG refuse and transit buses.

Mission Trails Waste Systems in Santa Clara, California, has signed what Clean Energy calls “a major station upgrade and a multi-year operations and maintenance extension.” The station upgrade will allow Mission Trails to fuel its fleet of more than 50 natural gas refuse trucks. 

Clean Energy also says it has been contracted to upgrade Garden City Sanitation’s station in Santa Clara, California, to fuel more than 80 solid waste trucks and to provide operations and maintenance services.

Atlas Refuel in Sacramento has signed a contract with Clean Energy to expand its station to fuel 50 natural gas trucks.
