 Clean Energy Fuels Corp. Completes RNG Facility at Tri-Cross Dairy, Boosting Sustainable Fuel Production
Situated on a 5,000-cow dairy farm, the new RNG facility is poised to produce 1 million gallons annually of negative carbon-intensity RNG, marking a significant achievement in Clean Energy's commitment to delivering the cleanest fuel for the transportation market. The facility is part of the company's network of fueling stations across North America.

The construction of the RNG production facility, encompassing the build of digesters and a processing plant, was completed in December 2023 at a total cost of $34 million. The injection of pipeline-quality RNG commenced shortly after completion, and Clean Energy is currently in the process of filing necessary applications to secure federal and state environmental credits.

As 2024 unfolds, Clean Energy anticipates a pivotal surge in demand for RNG fuel in the transportation market, particularly with the introduction of Cummins' X15N natural gas engine for heavy-duty trucks. To meet this rising demand, Clean Energy is expanding its fueling infrastructure, relying on a constant source of low-carbon RNG to supply these stations. The newly operational production facilities at Tri-Cross Dairy and other Midwest farms producing RNG play a crucial role in Clean Energy's strategy, according to Clay Corbus, Senior Vice President for Renewables.

Financing for the Tri-Cross Dairy project is supported by one of Clean Energy's RNG production joint ventures and was developed by Dynamic Renewables. This facility is part of a series of projects in the Midwest where the two companies have collaborated.
