Clean Energy wins CNG contracts for 4 airports

Posted on May 5, 2011

Clean Energy Fuels Corp. signed long-term agreements with four major airport complexes in four states to design, build, own and operate new compressed natural gas (CNG) stations to support ground transport vehicles and off-airport parking shuttles.

The new Clean Energy stations, available 24/7 for public access, will be located in Tampa, Fla.; New York City; New Orleans and Philadelphia.

Currently priced less than diesel, natural gas fuel produces up to 30 percent lower greenhouse gas emissions in light-duty vehicles and 23 percent lower emissions in medium to heavy-duty vehicle applications, according to Clean Energy.

U.S. Department of Energy reports estimate that 98 percent of the natural gas consumed in the U.S. is sourced in the U.S. and Canada.
