Liberty Coca-Cola, one of the country’s largest bottlers and distributors of Coke and other brands and serving the Northeast U.S., has signed a fueling contract with Clean Energy to power trucks in New York and Philadelphia with renewable natural gas. These are its first trucks to operate on biomethane, a sustainable fuel made from organic waste that significantly reduces carbon emissions by an average of 300% versus diesel.
“Liberty Coca-Cola strives to be the best corporate citizen we can be in the communities where we do business, and having a cleaner-operating and more sustainable fleet with renewable natural gas is a good way to that,” said Stanley Walker, distribution manager, Liberty Coca-Cola. “Renewable natural gas reduces carbon emissions and improves air quality easily and cost-effectively.”
Clean Energy has also signed a fueling agreement with Electrolux North America for an estimated 200,000 gallons of biomethane to be used by new trucks from a contracted carrier that will fuel at Clean Energy’s station in Ontario, Canada.
In addition, Recology, a waste management company, has inked new and extended renewable natural gas supply and maintenance contracts for an anticipated 800,000 and 6.5 million gallons respectively. Recology stations in Gilroy, Brisbane, and Davis, CA, support more than 150 bio-CNG trucks. Additionally, Recology has contracted Clean Energy to build a new biomethane station In Snohomish, WA that is projected to fuel 30 trucks.
Moreover, Channel Island Dairy Farms has signed a contract for an estimated 300,000 gallons of renewable natural gas for heavy-duty trucks operating in the Corcoran, CA area.
Sweeping Corporation of America, the nation’s largest power sweeping company, has signed a contract for a projected 250,000 gallons of fuel to power 78 trucks in Northern and Southern California.
Finally, Campbell’s Trucking Company in Tacoma, WA has signed a fueling deal for an expected 300,000 gallons of fuel for 15 heavy-duty trucks.
