While hydrogen has long been considered a fuel for the future, it has never gone mainstream. In 2007, we began our quest to find a use for hydrogen, not as a main fuel, but rather as an enhancement agent to increase the combustion efficiency of the internal combustion engine, one of the primary causes of global warming and climate change.
Around that time hundreds of individuals and large companies attempted to do this with a goal to lower fuel consumption and lower fuel costs. We believed that the future would entail addressing the climate change crisis and this was the utmost importance to us. The challenge was being able to have a constant, reliable and affordable source of hydrogen gas on board a vehicle, without storage tanks or nationwide fueling infrastructures. It took us almost five years to overcome all the difficulties in being able to effectively meet that challenge. After years of beta testing, we concentrated on passenger and light-weight commercial vehicles. Now, 12 years later, we are ready to go forward with the HTX-EnerG Systems for fossil fuel vehicles in the OEM and retrofit markets.
As a collateral benefit of our technology, we are also working to make BEVs and FCEVs the long term solution. All of our initiatives are based on the belief that climate change is the cause of all the extreme weather events now taking place, almost weekly, all over the world. Global Warming, GreenHouse Gas emissions, particulates in the air, must be addressed by all parties concerned.
The following are just some of the vehicles used for a multitude of testing through out the years.
We also tested turbo diesels trucks. Turbo's became an issue due to the way air is introduced to the combustion chamber. A regular ICE uses vacuum to draw air into the engine. Turbo engines require pressure to feed air into the cylinders.
