Clean Energy Fuels has opening of two new fueling stations that offer heavy-duty truck and other fleet vehicles renewable natural gas (RNG), one of the only fuels that receives a carbon-negative rating.

A station in North Fort Worth, near Alliance and DFW airports, and another in South Dallas close to I-45, I-35, and I-20, are strategically located near dozens of distribution centers and allow trucks to take advantage of a fuel that the company said provides similar convenience as diesel.

“The Dallas-Fort Worth area is already one of the biggest transportation hubs in the country and it is only getting bigger. These two new stations will provide heavy-duty truck fleets with the ease of fueling with RNG, which is becoming more recognized as the cleanest, most affordable, and readily available alternative fuel for the transportation market,” said Chad Lindholm, senior vice president of sales at Clean Energy.

Network of RNG Fueling Sites

The two stations expand Clean Energy’s fueling network of over 600 stations, Clean Energy Fuels said they open at a time when RNG is becoming a fuel that many fleets are embracing to meet their carbon emissions reduction goals.

A new 15-liter natural gas engine for heavy-duty trucks, the Cummins X15N, is anticipated to be commercially available later in 2024 and is currently being tested by some of the largest and most demanding fleets in the country, including Walmart, Werner, Knight Swift, FedEx Freight and UPS.

Fueling RNG Buses, Shuttles, and Refuse Trucks

In addition to heavy-duty truck fleets, there are seven hundred Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) buses, hundreds of sanitation trucks, airport shuttles, and other vehicles that support DFW and Austin-Bergstrom airports, all of which operate on ultra-clean RNG.

North Fort Worth RNG Station Details

The North Fort Worth station is located at 400 Intermodal Parkway, Haslet, Texas, adjacent to the BNSF Alliance railyard. It sits on almost 8 acres and is equipped with multiple fast-fill fuel dispensers allowing heavy-duty vehicles to easily get in and out within 10-15 minutes with a full tank of RNG, according to the company. It also offers:

  • 82 private overnight fueling posts for heavy-duty trucks
  • 54 parking bays for box trucks
  • 140 spaces for drivers’ personal vehicles

South Dallas RNG Station Details

The South Dallas station is located at 4480 Logistics Drive, Dallas, Texas, and occupies 5.7 acres near Lancaster, bordered by I-35 to the east, I-20 to the north, and I-45 to the west. It is equipped with:

  • multiple fast-fill dispensers
  • 80 private overnight fuel posts for heavy-duty trucks
  • 120 parking places for drivers’ vehicles
  • 41 parking places for box trucks.

RNG Production

Clean Energy said it is also investing hundreds of millions of dollars in the production of RNG at dairy farms in the U.S., including a facility at Del Rio Dairy in Friona, Texas, which began producing RNG in 2023, and another is expected to begin construction at South Fork Dairy in Dimmitt, Texas, soon.

Agriculture accounts for nearly 10% of U.S. greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and the transportation sector accounts for another 28%, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Capturing methane from farm waste lowers these emissions. RNG, produced by that captured methane and used as a transportation fuel, significantly lowers GHG emissions on a lifecycle basis when compared to diesel. This allows RNG to be one of the only transportation fuels to receive a negative carbon-intensity score based on the reduction of emissions at the source and at the vehicle.
