Clean Energy Fuels Unveils Renewable Natural Gas Fueling Station in Baltimore

Clean Energy Fuels has introduced a renewable natural gas (RNG) station at 6820 Quad Avenue near the Pulaski Industrial Area in Baltimore to provide heavy-duty truck fleets access to a low carbon, sustainable fuel in the east coast trucking corridor. 

Clean Energy hopes its multi-million-dollar investment in the Baltimore area will put the city on the map as a hub for clean, sustainable fueling. 

The new station, located on about 20 acres of land, includes four fast-fill dispensers for easy in-and-out fueling of RNG, private time-fill hoses for up to 156 trucks (which allows for cost-effective fueling while transmitting real-time data to customers), and 156 additional parking places for the drivers’ personal vehicles.  

“Large fleets fueling with RNG have the ability to realize immediate and significant carbon reduction, especially in the heavy-duty truck sector,” said Chad Lindholm, Senior Vice President of Clean Energy. “The opening of our station in Maryland and others around the country demonstrates the demand for an affordable, clean fuel that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and is available today.”

Clean Energy currently has a network of 590 fueling stations in North America, and as part of its growth strategy, the company is also making substantial investments in RNG production at dairy farms

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, agriculture accounts for 10% of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, and transportation accounts for another 28%. Clean Energy hopes to capture methane from farm waste to produce RNG for transportation fuel and significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions on a lifecycle basis when compared to diesel.
