3M, Rush Enterprises Collaborating on New CNG Technology

3M and Rush Enterprises have signed an agreement to pursue the design, manufacture and installation of a portfolio of compressed natural gas (CNG) tanks and fuel systems for use in Class 6-8 vehicles in North America.

Under the agreement, 3M will supply tanks with its proprietary technology, and Rush Enterprises will provide fuel systems, distribution and service support.

The companies say the new line of CNG tanks will be introduced late this year and that the advanced, lighter-weight fuel system with several design and material enhancements will be launched in spring 2015.
