Clean Energy Opens CNG Station for Buses and Refuse Trucks Transitioning to Cleaner Fuel Alternative in Olathe and Johnson County, KS

Energy Fuel Corp. (Nasdaq: CLNE)
today joined city officials and county executives in the City of Olathe
and Johnson County, KS to mark the opening of a compressed
natural gas (CNG) fueling station that is expected to greatly reduce
greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, fueling costs, noise pollution, and
maintenance expenses.

“This successful collaboration between two government entities is an
impressive accomplishment that will maximize the efficiency of the
station and improve the ROI for the project,” said Scott Vazzana, senior
business development manager, Clean Energy. “By switching to natural
gas, it is expected that the city and county will realize a $6.9 million
in fuel savings through 2026, while providing improved
air quality for the communities.”

The $4 million project, funded by both municipalities,
along with the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT), will jointly
power 50 refuse
vehicles in Olathe and 120 transit
buses in Johnson County. The initiative is expected to reduce toxic
emissions in the region by an estimated 20 to 29 percent, lower
consumption of diesel fuel by 7,300 gallons annually, per truck, and
provide an estimated 80 percent decrease in noise level.

“We know having access to cleaner burning transportation fuel like CNG
is critical for air quality in our region, and in turn the quality of
life of our residents,” said City of Olathe Public Works Director Mary
Jaeger. “We are thrilled to be part of this green initiative.”

The City of Olathe and Johnson County join other successful Clean Energy
projects and stations in the region, including the City of Kansas City,
MO, the Kansas
City Transportation Authority, Lee’s Summit School District, Blue
Springs School District, and the North
Kansas City School District.
