Ryder System, Inc. will begin using Clean Energy Fuels Corp.’s Redeem renewable natural gas (RNG) at its stations in Orange and Fontana, Calif., the company has announced.

The fuel will be available in both compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) to individual and public fleet vehicles.  As part of the fuel agreement, Clean Energy will also be providing fuel station maintenance services at both station locations.

Ryder is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 6,300 metric tons per year using current fuel volumes. This would be the equivalent of removing approximately 1,319 passenger cars from the road annually.

Redeem is a renewable natural gas vehicle fuel that's often referred to as biomethane. It's derived from biogenic methane or biogas, which is methane that's naturally generated by the decomposition of organic waste. The methane gas is then processed, purified, and sent into the interstate natural gas pipeline. Redeem biomethane vehicle fuel is procured from over 15 biomethane production facilities, including two owned and operated by Clean Energy.
