Ryder System vice president of supply management, global fuel products, Scott Perry, said, “Our decision to use 100% renewable natural gas is based upon our ongoing commitment to ensuring we are delivering solutions that help our customers reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”

Ryder is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 6,300 metric tons per year using current fuel volumes.

Clean Energy also will be providing fuel station maintenance services at Ryder’s natural gas fueling stations in Fontana and Orange.

Clean Energy operates 34 filling station locations, and Ryder has 18 natural gas vehicle maintenance markets.

Clean Energy Renewables president Harrison Clay, said: “After launching Redeem as a commercial fuel just two short years ago, Clean Energy is on track to deliver over 40 million gallons this year.”

“Ryder’s leadership to provide Redeem at their two stations in southern California will now expand the benefits of the cleanest fuel to Ryder commercial customers’ fleets operating hundreds of additional heavy duty trucks and other vehicles.”

Redeem by Clean Energy is a renewable natural gas vehicle fuel, derived from biogenic methane or biogas, which is methane that is naturally generated by the decomposition of organic waste.

The methane gas is then processed, purified and sent into the interstate natural gas pipeline and made available exclusively to Clean Energy customers.

Redeem biomethane vehicle fuel is procured from over 15 biomethane production facilities, including two owned and operated by Clean Energy.
