Klean Industries and Nikola Corporation have announced a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to encourage the adoption of Nikola’s zero-emission vehicles with Klean’s partners and feedstock suppliers. The companies will collaborate to develop green hydrogen supply and dispensing infrastructure in the US and Canada, evaluating offtake opportunities from Klean’s green hydrogen projects being developed by Klean and its partners. 

Both Klean and Nikola see a significant opportunity to collaborate on projects where Klean and its partners operate recycling, resource recovery and waste to energy plants, reinforcing the importance of working together as they look to deploy and develop a renewable hydrogen value chain.

Klean Industries, a company focused on the recovery of clean energy and resources from waste, has partnered with Nikola Corporation to promote the adoption of zero-emission vehicles and develop green hydrogen infrastructure. The collaboration aims to facilitate the development of the low carbon hydrogen economy and drive a cleaner, more sustainable future. The companies intend to convert Klean’s logistics partners’ truck fleet to Nikola Class 8 zero-emission vehicles, utilising Klean’s green hydrogen. This collaboration demonstrates the commitment of Klean, its logistic partners, and Nikola, to help decarbonise the transportation sector as hydrogen plays a crucial role in providing a solution for the global path to a zero-emission future in transportation.

Jesse Klinkhamer, CEO of Klean Industries, said, “Green hydrogen has the potential to completely transform the energy landscape and drive a cleaner, more sustainable future.” Klean’s vision of utilising a green hydrogen fleet of trucks in their tyre recycling ecosystem is a clear indication of the company’s commitment to creating a better, more sustainable future. 

Carey Mendes, President Energy at Nikola, said, “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.”
