Chevron funds Adopt-a-Port initiative in RNG

01 June 2021

Chevron Corporation has announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Chevron U.S.A. Inc is investing an additional USD $20 million in the Adopt-a-Port initiative with California renewable natural gas (RNG) provider Clean Energy Fuels Corp.

Chevron has now invested a total of USD $28 million in the initiative, which it says provides truck operators serving the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach with cleaner, carbon negative RNG to reduce emissions. Chevron’s funding will allow truck operators to subsidize the cost of buying new or converting to RNG powered trucks, the company outlined. Clean Energy is managing the program.

“Extending our agreement with Clean Energy demonstrates the strength of our partnership in providing low carbon fuels to our customers,” Andy Walz, Chevron’s president of Americas Fuels & Lubricants, said in a company statement.

Greg Roche, Clean Energy’s vice president of sustainability, said, “Chevron’s increased commitment to this project will allow us to extend favorable funding to smaller, independent operators, which means cleaner, RNG-fueled trucks operating in the ports”.

“The resulting positive environmental impact will help to reduce local air pollution while also eliminating climate pollutants,” he added.
