“Our customers have continued to operate their essential businesses at a very high level, despite significant challenges from the COVID 19 pandemic,” said Nate Jensen, senior vice president renewable fuels, Clean Energy.
“This means that essential employees are able to get to work, refuse is collected every day, and goods movement continues uninterrupted throughout the U.S. Our customers have demonstrated their commitment to sustainable transportation by enthusiastically embracing our ultra-low carbon Redeem RNG. In response, we have significantly augmented our supplies of Redeem RNG and expect to provide ever-increasing volumes of the clean, sustainable fuel to our customers.”
Clean Energy’s Redeem was the first commercially available RNG vehicle fuel, derived from capturing the biogenic methane produced by the decomposition of organic waste from dairies, landfills, and wastewater treatment plants. Redeem reduces climate-harming greenhouse gas emissions by at least 70%, and even up to 300% depending on the source of the RNG, making it a negative carbon fuel.
