    About Louisiana Clean Fuels

    Our Mission

    The mission of Louisiana Clean Fuels, Inc. is to advance the nation’s environmental, economic, and energy security by supporting local actions to diversify transportation fuel options. 

    As a member of the Department of Energy’s Clean Cities Program, LCF strives to achieve its goals by employing a variety of strategies which include: promoting and implementing the use of domestically produced fuels, alternative fuel vehicles, increased fuel economy, hybrid vehicles, and idle reduction technologies.

    Our History

    Louisiana Clean Fuels (LCF) was established in 1997 as an affiliate of the United States Department of Energy (DOE) Clean Cities program and received designation April 11, 2000. Formerly the Greater Baton Rouge Clean Cities Coalition, LCF operates as an independent, non-profit association supported through its partnership with the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources and its stakeholders.

    What We Do

    Louisiana Clean Fuels helps public and private fleets and consumers reduce their petroleum use and greenhouse gas emissions. Clean Cities builds partnerships with local and statewide organizations in the public and private sectors to adopt:

    • Alternative and renewable fuels
    • Idle-reduction measures
    • Fuel economy improvements
    • New transportation technologies, as they emerge.

     

    Our Territory

    The LCF territory includes 57 parishes, covering all of Louisiana except for those parishes covered by our sister organization, Southeast Louisiana Clean Fuel Partnership, namely: Jefferson, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Tammany, St. Charles, St. John the Baptist, and Tangipahoa.

    About Clean Cities

    The US DOE Clean Cities Program supports public and private partnerships that work to support transportation fuel options and help reduce our nation's reliance on foreign petroleum. Clean Cities helps all parties identify mutual interests while meeting their individual objectives such as: the need to improve air quality, comply with federal fleet regulations, or identify and create markets for vehicles or fuel.
