Clean Energy to Build, Operate CNG Fueling Station for New Solid Waste Fleet in Seattle

September 23, 2008

SEAL BEACH, CA – CleanScapes, Inc., a newly-designated City of Seattle, Wash., solid waste contractor, has awarded Clean Energy Fuels Corp. a contract for up to 10 years to build and operate a compressed natural gas (CNG) station and provide fuel for CleanScapes’ 40 new CNG-powered refuse trucks. Clean Energy’s fuel contract with CleanScapes includes a preferential fuel pricing provision.

The new CleanScapes time-fill CNG fuel station, to be designed, built, and operated by Clean Energy, will be located south of Seattle’s downtown area. Starting in April 2009, CleanScapes will deploy the CNG fleet to provide waste collection services to more than 64,000 residential and business customers in the Central and Northeast sections of Seattle according to www.businesswire.com.

“The CNG trucks will be used mainly for residential collection and will provide a very welcome reduction of emissions and noise levels in some of the most populated areas of Seattle,” said Chris Martin, CleanScapes’ president.
