Clean Energy Fuels Zero Now

Now Available for Medium Duty Trucks

What is Zero Now?

Zero Now is an ultra-clean, revolutionary fuel + engine combination that can be implemented today to achieve zero emissions.

Revolutionary Fuel

Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) is a 100% organic fuel that comes from dairy farms and landfills -- not drilling. It reduces GHG emissions by up to 300% versus diesel.

Revolutionary Engine

Forget everything you’ve heard in the past about natural gas fleets. The new Cummins Westport Inc. Near Zero ISX12N engine offers the same power, torque, and reliability of its diesel counterpart, and it meets the optional Low NOx standard set by CARB — 90% lower than the current EPA emission standard.

Revolutionary Affordability

Clean Energy will help you lease or purchase a new natural gas fleet for the same price as a diesel fleet. Not only will you be running the cleanest rides on the road at no additional cost, we'll even guarantee a fuel price significantly lower than diesel through the financing term.

    The Cleanest Engine

    Reliable and Durable

    Reliable & Durable

    The Zero Now solution is powered by an engine that features next generation technology to improve reliability and durability. Manufactured by Cummins Westport, the Near Zero engine recirculates exhaust gases back to the engine cylinders, while the closed crankcase ventilation system eliminates emissions.

    EPA & CARB Certified

    The 2018 ISX12N is certified by both the EPA and the California Air Resources Board to meet the lowest nitrogen oxide (NOx) emission standards at only 0.02 g/bhp-hr.

    90% Reduction in NOx Emissions

    90% Reduction in NOx Emissions

    The ISX12N engine emits 90% fewer pollutants than even today’s newest diesel engines, making it the cleanest engine available for heavy-duty trucks. In fact, the new engine has tested as low as 0.01 g NOx/bhp-hr., achieving virtually zero tailpipe emissions.

    Lower Maintenance Costs

    Lower Maintenance Costs

    The elimination of a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) means a simpler engine with less maintenance required. Plus, the Cummins-Westport engine is backed by a nationwide network of technicians, parts, and service support.

    Quieter and Odorless

    Quieter & Odorless

    The elimination of diesel particulate matter and complete replacement of petroleum fuel means your fleet will be far quieter to operate, and your drivers will be spared from smelling like diesel.

    As Powerful As Diesel

    As Powerful As Diesel

    With 400 hp / 1,450 lb-ft torque, the ISX12N is well suited for heavy-duty regional-haul truck/tractor, vocational, and refuse applications.

    Still skeptical of its strength?

    Not a heavy-duty truck?

    Cummins Westport makes comparable engines for school buses, shuttles, and medium-duty truck markets, as well as transit and refuse trucks.

    The Problem with Electric

    Not Yet in Mass Production

    Not Yet in Mass Production

    The biggest problem with electric is that it’s not yet a real solution for heavy-duty trucks. With any untested and unproven technology comes concerns about the ability to meet current operational and economic requirements.

    Electric trucks will be costly to buy, and will likely raise operational costs for shippers and carriers via increased vehicle weight, decreased driving ranges, and lack of charging infrastructure.

    Not Zero Impact

    Not Zero Impact

    Heavy-duty trucks will require a considerable amount of energy to recharge. A significant increase in demand for electricity may be met through an increase in coal production.

    Exponential demand for rare metals, cobalt and lithium, used in battery cells has also created a human rights and environmental crisis in unregulated and developing countries.

    THE CLEANEST FUEL IN THE WORLD

    The Zero Now solution is fueled by ultraclean Renewable Natural Gas (RNG).

    Renewable and Organic

    Renewable & Organic

    RNG is made from biomethane gas which is captured and extracted from landfills and dairy farms. Next, the gas is processed and purified, and then made available exclusively to Clean Energy customers at fueling stations across North America.

    No Drilling, No Fossil Fuels

    No Drilling, No Fossil Fuels

    Because RNG is made entirely from organic waste and does not involve drilling, it is technically not a fossil fuel. In fact, by capturing the harmful biomethane gas that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere, it actually leaves the planet in better shape than it was before.

    Reduces GHG emissions by 70%

    Reduces GHG emissions by up to 300%

    RNG reduces greenhouse gas emissions by at least 70% versus diesel, and in some cases by up to 300%. But we’re not stopping there. Clean Energy is committed to a more sustainable future, which is why we’ve set out a company-wide goal for our RNG to be fully carbon-free by 2025. That means by switching to RNG today, you can continue to improve on your own sustainability goals without changing a thing.

    Price-Stable, Domestic Fuel

    Price-Stable, Domestic Fuel

    There is an abundance of renewable natural gas available in the U.S. and the supply is rapidly growing, which allows it to be a price-stable resource, fully independent from the volatility and influence of foreign markets.

    Works With All Vehicle Types

    Works With All Vehicle Types

    RNG fuels hundreds of vehicle fleets across the nation every day. Any natural gas vehicle from a taxi to an 18-wheeler can use RNG in either CNG or LNG form. RNG can meet 100% of the fueling requirements of any natural gas vehicle.

    Making the Switch

    Moving away from diesel is better for everyone. It’s better for the health of our drivers, for our air quality, and for the environment. Natural gas is an abundant, domestic, price-stable resource that provides independence from foreign oil markets. But making the switch has to also make sense for your company’s bottom line. That’s why at Clean Energy we set out to remove all of the fiscal roadblocks previously standing in the way. And to ensure the operational transition is as seamless and easy as possible, we offer a comprehensive program, TouchPoint Customer Care, to guide you through a successful vehicle launch and beyond.

    Zero Added Expense

    Zero Added Expense

    Through Clean Energy’s Zero Now program, you can lease or purchase a fleet of new, natural gas vehicles for the same price of a diesel fleet. Choose from a variety of manufacturers with either CNG or LNG tanks. The only catch is that they have to be equipped with the new Cummins Westport ISX12N Near Zero engine.
