Industries Ltd., its fully owned affiliate, has entered into an
agreement with China Gas Holdings Ltd.
Per the three-year contract, IMW Industries will purvey its
CleanGAS Technology products and services, which includes roughly
416 CleanCNG Compressors, 186 dryers, 527 dispensers, and 387,500
liters of buffer storage to China Gas.

nearly 310 compressed natural gas (CNG) stations for the Chinese
public. The deal is estimated to have a value of roughly $167.0
million. Clean Energy arm also reveals that it has already
provided China with equipment and associate technologies for the

China is now on the way to use natural gas as an alternative
source of energy, and hence, has been investing drastically to
build associated infrastructure.

share of 13 cents, narrower than the Zacks Consensus Estimate of
loss of 23 cents per share. This was aided by increased delivery
of CNG, liquefied natural gas (LNG), and renewable natural gas
(RNG) to customers when compared with the year-ago period.
