Ohio Renewable Natural Gas Station to Fuel Amazon Trucks

SEATTLE (Oil Monster):  Clean Energy Fuels Corp. opened a station on Wednesday in Groveport, Ohio, that will supply Amazon trucks and other fleets with 700,000 gallons of renewable natural gas (RNG) annually. 

The two companies entered an agreement in 2021 for Clean Energy (NASDAQ: CLNE) to provide Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) with RNG at 27 existing stations and 19 stations that were to be built or upgraded. This Groveport station is the first of the 19.

The 700,000 gallons of RNG will reduce carbon emissions by 6,848 metric tons, which is the equivalent of removing 1,489 passenger cars from the road annually, according to a Clean Energy news release.

Amazon could use the Groveport station’s entire 700,000 gallons a year of RNG if it deploys all of the heavy-duty natural gas trucks that it plans on, Clean Energy President and CEO Andrew J. Littlefair told FreightWaves.

“We are hopeful that other fleets that operate in the central Ohio area will see the many benefits of RNG and will eventually use the station,” Littlefair said. “We are already in discussions with a number of fleets.”

The Groveport station spans 6.7 acres and includes multiple fast-fill RNG dispensers. It also boasts time-fill posts for up to 52 trucks.

“This multimillion-dollar investment in the Columbus, Ohio, area will put it on the map as a hub for clean, sustainable fueling,” the news release said. “Plans are already underway to add fueling capacity for additional heavy- and medium-duty trucks.”
