LAKE FOREST, Calif., August 31, 2021 — Quantum Fuel Systems (Quantum), a fully integrated alternative energy company was selected by Innovative Fuel Systems (IFS) to supply natural gas fuel systems for its heavy-duty trucks.
Innovative Fuel Systems (IFS) is an Edmonton-based company that provides patent-pending technology to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the transportation industry. IFS partnered with KAG Canada, a subsidiary of the largest bulk commodity hauler in North America, to utilize its technology in their tractor-trailers. Six Westcan Bulk Transport vehicles have been retrofitted with Quantum’s Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fuel system modules resulting in engines that can operate on both diesel fuel and cleaner burning CNG.
IFS technology will allow up to 45 percent reduction in certain GHG emissions, and about 10 percent CO2e (carbon dioxide equivalent) reduction on a lifecycle model (well to wheel). The initial deployment of this system was on Edmonton-based routes, including transporting aviation fuel to Edmonton International Airport on vehicles fueled with cleaner burning natural gas from the EIA-based ATCO Natural Gas Refueling Station.
“We are excited to support this project and look forward to supplying more systems to Innovative Fuel Systems as they continue to deploy their clean transportation technology,” said Mark Arold, President, Quantum Fuel Systems LLC. “We are committed to providing technology to help fleets reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions in transportation today with natural gas, and in the future with hydrogen technology.”
