BALTIMORE — Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has opened a new renewable natural gas station (RNG) in Baltimore, near the Pulaski Industrial Area, according to a Nov. 21 press release. RNG is made entirely of organic waste and promises to dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The new station is located near the Pulaski Industrial Area and provides heavy-duty truck fleets access to a low-carbon, sustainable fuel along the busy East Coast trucking corridor.
The new station, located at 6820 Quad Ave., sits on almost 20 acres and includes four fast-fill dispensers for easy in-and-out fueling of RNG, as well as private time-fill hoses for up to 156 trucks and parking for 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.”
