Cemex US to Power Southern California Fleet with RNG

Cemex and Clean Energy Fuels Corp. have announced a new fueling agreement to provide ultra-clean renewable natural gas (RNG) to power 39 of Cemex US’s ready-mix and cement bulk trucks in Southern California. 

Forecasted to provide approximately 300,000 gal. of RNG annually, the fleet will utilize Clean Energy’s public station network in Southern California to fuel with RNG, a negative carbon-intensity transportation fuel that substantially lowers greenhouse gas emissions by an average of 300% compared to diesel.

Alongside the new fueling deal, Clean Energy will commission a private fueling station exclusively for Cemex’s growing RNG fleet. Located in Rialto, Calif., the new station will include time-fill dispensers and a dedicated fast-fill dispenser for easy and cost-effective refueling. The construction project is expected to be completed by the end of the year and Cemex trucks will begin fueling on-site soon after. 

Clean Energy will be supplying RNG to the new private station, as well as operating and maintaining the site upon completion.

“As leaders in the building materials industry, we recognize the pivotal role we play in building a more sustainable future. Embracing renewable fuels isn’t just an option; it’s an imperative,” said Francisco Rivera, Cemex US regional president – West Region. “What Cemex provides is essential to building communities throughout California and the country. By utilizing Clean Energy’s renewable energy resources, we accelerate our aggressive sustainability goals, inspire innovation, foster resilience, and build a legacy of responsible stewardship for generations to come.”

Clean Energy currently has a network of over 600 fueling stations around North America and is steadily expanding that number with stations purposely built and strategically located for commercial fleets.
