Veolia Environmental named partner in national clean fleets program
Veolia Environmental Services North America Corp. has joined the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Clean Cities National Clean Fleets Partnership program. The objective of the partnership is to engage companies that operate large fleets to reduce overall petroleum consumption.
The initiative provides fleets with specialized resources so they can successfully incorporate alternative fuels and fuel-saving measures into their operations. The National Clean Fleets Partnership was developed with input from fleet managers, industry representatives and the DOE’s Clean Cities coordinators.
Veolia Environmental Services North America maintains a fleet of more than 5,000 trucks, heavy equipment and support vehicles across 28 states. As of 2012, Veolia operates 4 CNG fueling stations and over 100 compressed natural gas-powered refuse collection and support vehicles.
