CleanNG is an innovator of advanced performance products for natural gas vehicles. Our mission is to increase fuel range and efficiency for natural gas vehicles. Our vision is to be a leader in high-pressure fuel storage and delivery systems for natural gas and hydrogen vehicles.
CleanNG was founded on October 1, 2010 as an Oklahoma, LLC and is located in Tulsa. The company’s focus is on next generation fuel storage and delivery systems for natural gas vehicles (NGVs). CleanNG’s liner-less, composite fuel storage system, the MagmaCel™, will encourage adoption of NGVs across the United States. Current NGV fuel systems, specifically the fuel tank, have been a hindrance to the adoption of CNG fuel for vehicles. Existing products lack the fuel capacity, range and cost effectiveness customers need in order to consider widespread adoption of compressed natural gas.
CleanNG’s MagmaCel fuel storage system will allow fuel to be stored at a higher pressure compared to the current standard allowing customers to achieve 30 percent more fuel capacity or allow for a reduced tank size, allowing optimal space in vehicle’s to be utilized.
CleanNG was founded by three individuals, while students at Oklahoma State University. Each of them bring talent to the company in the fields of marketing, entrepreneurship, consulting, b2b sales, customer service, advertising and public relations. The team is motivated by personal interest in energy and technology, as well as the automotive industry. CEO and cofounder, Matt Villarreal, formed the tank concept during his undergraduate years and since then the team has further designed and developed the product toward commercialization with the help of CleanNG’s engineering team, OSU’sNew Product Development Center, theHelmerich Advanced Technology Research Center and outside consultants.
