Clean Energy Fuels Corp has just announced that Dallas Fort Worth International airport has awarded Clean Energy a renewable natural gas fuelling contract for the airport’s vehicle fleet.

The contract will involve Clean Energy providing 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 fuelling agreement, Clean Energy and Dallas Fort Worth have extended the current operations and maintenance agreement for the airport’s public natural gas fuelling stations. The contract stations dispense approximately 2m gasoline gallon equivalents each year.

“We continue to see strong interest in our Redeem RNG product,” commented Tyler Henn, Vice President and General Manager of Clean Energy Renewables. “Businesses and municipalities are learning that by fuelling with RNG you not only get a cleaner fuel but you get a fuel that is domestically produced and more economical.”

DFW is currently the only airport in the US to be certified as Carbon Neutral and the largest airport in the world with that distinction. It will also become the first airport outside of California to use Redeem's RNG.
