Klean Industries and Nikola Corporation collaborate to convert truck fleets to Nikola Tre FCEVs.

Klean Industries and Nikola Corporation will work together to encourage adoption of Nikola's zero-emission Class 8 vehicles with Klean's partners and feedstock suppliers and develop green hydrogen supply and dispensing infrastructure across the United States and Canada.

Klean Industries Inc has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Nikola Corporation to collaborate on the adoption of zero-emission Class 8 vehicles and green hydrogen supply and dispensing infrastructure in the United States and Canada.

Klean Industries is a Vancouver-based company that specializes in converting waste into clean energy and resources, while Nikola Corporation is a leading designer and manufacturer of heavy-duty commercial battery-electric vehicles, hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles, and energy supply and infrastructure solutions via its HYLA brand.

Under the terms of the agreement, the two companies will work together to encourage adoption of Nikola’s zero-emission Class 8 vehicles with Klean’s partners and feedstock suppliers. They will also collaborate on developing green hydrogen supply and dispensing infrastructure across the United States and Canada.

In addition, Nikola will evaluate offtake opportunities from green hydrogen projects being developed by Klean and its partners, which involve hydroelectric, wind, and solar power in the Pacific Northwest and Canada. Utilizing Klean’s green hydrogen, the companies will also work together to convert Klean’s logistics partners’ truck fleet to Nikola Class 8 zero-emission vehicles.

Klean and Nikola have identified a major opportunity to collaborate on initiatives related to recycling, resource recovery, and waste-to-energy plants operated by Klean and its partners. This partnership is mutually beneficial, as both companies recognize the importance of zero-emission logistics in delivering comprehensive supply chain solutions that promote the development of a low-carbon hydrogen economy and aim for zero waste to landfill.

Moreover, this collaboration underscores the dedication of Klean, its logistics partners, and Nikola towards reducing carbon emissions in the transportation sector. By leveraging the potential of hydrogen as a critical component in achieving a zero-emission future for transportation, the companies are committed to facilitating the transition towards a more sustainable and environmentally friendly economy.

Jesse Klinkhamer, CEO of Klean Industries Inc, said: We believe Nikola’s hydrogen-electric trucks are going to fundamentally change the ground transportation and logistics landscape. This exciting collaboration will create opportunities that will reinforce the importance of working together as we look to both deploy and develop a renewable hydrogen value chain. Developing clean energy projects with leading technology companies such as Nikola, supports Klean’s strategic focus and enables our respective companies to create a symbiosis between waste, resources, and energy, while simultaneously helping in the creation of a circular low carbon economy. Green hydrogen has the potential to completely transform the energy landscape and drive a cleaner, more sustainable future.

Carey Mendes, Nikola, President Energy, said: Klean’s vision of utilizing green hydrogen fleet of trucks in their tire recycling ecosystem is a clear indication of the company’s commitment to creating a better, more sustainable future. With its longer driving range and zero-emissions, the Nikola Tre hydrogen electric vehicle is poised to revolutionize the trucking industry and change the way we think about transportation. Klean has already brought together like-minded partners to decarbonize their truck fleets which is a testament to their far-reaching commitment and deep knowledge of this sustainability space.
