With this achievement, Quantum will bring its large diameter CNG tank technology to Europe and Asia and will enable European and Asian trucking firms to realize the substantial operating cost reductions that many US fleets have demonstrated through the use of CNG as a transportation fuel.
“We are excited to make our Q-Lite tank technology available to all UN countries and pursue opportunities outside of the North American market,” said Brian Olson, President and CEO of Quantum. “Other sizes of CNG storage tanks, which store up to 46.5 diesel gallon equivalents, are planned as well for United Nations certification.”
The Q-Lite technology has set standards for the optimization of carbon fiber, yielding the lightest tank in the industry. Quantum’s tanks also provide a large fuel capacity in a given packaging envelope.
