Clean Energy Fuels, the largest provider of natural gas fueling in North America, says that LSG Sky Chefs, the world’s leading provider of airline catering, will use Clean Energy stations to power a new fleet of compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles at Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport.
The new fleet of 20 CNG catering trucks is anticipated to use 50,000 gasoline gallon equivalents (GGEs) each year and will be able to conveniently fuel at Clean Energy’s existing station at DFW. The purchase of the trucks was supported by a grant from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to replace LSG Sky Chef’s ageing diesel fleet.
“At LSG Sky Chefs, we have a strong commitment to both our customers and the communities we serve,” said Todd Liddle, Director of Last Mile Logistics at LSG Sky Chefs. “By using alternative fuels such as natural gas, we can cut our greenhouse gas emissions while continuing to offer world class service.”
By switching to CNG, LSG Sky Chef’s will reduce their emissions by 132 metric tons, the equivalent of planting 3,300+ trees every year.
