Clean Energy lands Dallas Fort Worth Airport RNG fueling contract

Posted on November 16, 2017

The Dallas Fort Worth International (DFW) Airport awarded Clean Energy Fuels Corp. a renewable natural gas (RNG) fueling contract for the airport’s vehicle fleet. The contract calls for Clean Energy to provide the airport with its Redeem™ brand of RNG, the first renewable and commercially available vehicle fuel made entirely from 100% organic waste. The use of RNG has the potential to reduce DFW fleet emissions by approximately 70%.

In addition to the fueling agreement, Clean Energy and DFW extended the current operations and maintenance agreement for the airport’s public natural gas fueling stations. The contract stations dispense approximately two million gasoline gallon equivalents (GGEs) each year.

“We continue to see strong interest in our Redeem RNG product,” said Tyler Henn, VP/GM of Clean Energy Renewables. “Businesses and municipalities are learning that by fueling with RNG you not only get a cleaner fuel but you get a fuel that is domestically produced and more economical.”

DFW is the only airport in the U.S. to be certified as Carbon Neutral and the largest airport in the world with that distinction. It will become the first airport outside of California to use Redeem™ RNG.

“DFW has a strong commitment to sustainability, and we will continue to look for innovative ways to reduce our emissions, while improving the customer experience,” said Robert Horton, DFW’s VP, environmental affairs. “Using RNG for our fleet of vehicles will help us reduce our carbon footprint and our operating costs. It makes good business sense.”

Clean Energy conducted the design, build, operations, and maintenance for the airport’s first natural gas fueling station in 2000 and was selected to build and operate the second station in 2011.
