Seal Beach-based Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has signed an agreement with the national refuse company Waste Management to provide maintenance and repair services for its compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations in the U.S. Clean Energy provides engineering and construction services, as well as compression equipment.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to support Waste Management in its expanding efforts to deploy CNG truck fleets that provide environmentally friendly refuse collection and recycling services to its commercial and residential customer base,” said Raymond P. Burke, vice president of Clean Energy. “It is a clear leader in the industry converting its fleets to natural gas.”

Waste Management operates some 1,000 natural-gas-powered solid waste collection and recycling trucks in North America. It has CNG and LNG (liquefied natural gas) fueling stations at 17 of its facilities, and more under development.

Natural gas produces as much as 24 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions when used by medium- to heavy-duty vehicles. The Department of Energy estimates that 98 percent of the natural gas consumed in the United States is from the U.S. or Canada.
