Clean Energy Fuels Corp. was contracted by the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) to provide its Redeem™ renewable natural gas (RNG), a fuel derived from organic waste, to power the MTA’s 800 natural gas transit buses.
The multi-year agreement for an estimated 25 million gallons of Clean Energy’s Redeem™ RNG will reduce greenhouse gas emissions annually by 25,351 metric tons — the equivalent of removing 5,477 gasoline cars from the road, planting 419,184 trees, and recycling 8,623 tons of landfill waste — by switching to RNG from fossil natural gas.
Redeem is the first commercially available RNG vehicle fuel, derived from capturing biogenic methane that is produced from the decomposition of organic waste from dairies, landfills, and wastewater treatment plants. Switching to Redeem will reduce the MTA’s carbon footprint of its natural gas transit buses.
