Clean Energy Acquires Dallas Clean Energy

Clean Energy Fuels, Seal Beach, Calif., has acquired Dallas Clean Energy, which owns the third-largest landfill gas processing plant in the United States, for $19.1 million. The plant is located at a landfill owned by the city of Dallas.

“This is a major strategic action for Clean Energy, enabling our company to participate in using renewable biogas introduced into the pipeline system for our account along with traditional natural gas,” said Andrew Littlefair, president and CEO of Clean Energy, in a press release. “Use of biogas as a vehicle fuel has enormous potential to both reduce carbon emissions and reduce our dependence on foreign oil by displacing the use of petroleum fuel.”
