Press release date: January 6, 2014

LAKE FOREST, Calif. - Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. (QTWW), a global leader in natural gas storage systems, integration and vehicle system technologies, today announced that it has been granted approval of its Type-IV Q-LiteŽ CNG tank technology, pursuant to United Nations ECE Regulation No. 110.  This approval allows a certain Quantum tank family to be sold into United Nations countries around the world.

This approval will allow Quantum to bring its highly successful 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 Mr. 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 the greatest fuel capacity in a given packaging envelope.  These industry leading capabilities are incorporated in Quantum's product lines of both strap and collar mounted tanks, yielding the best value for its customers.
