HyPower Fuel Moves to Power Vehicle Only with Hydrogen from On-Board Electrolysis Unit
12 December 2006
Company management is quick to point out that these are preliminary laboratory results using prototype H2R units and will require considerable improvements before any practical transportation application can become a reality. The company plans to host a number of live demonstrations in early 2007 with independent experts in attendance to monitor and verify resulting data.
HyPower believes that its H2 Reactor’s electrolysis process is the most efficient to date. Currently the H2 Reactor requires 1 watt hour to produce 1 liter of hydrogen—approximately 2 to 2.5 times more efficient than the current performance of competing technologies.
We have now successfully created a situation where a car could run on water and produce virtually no harmful emissions or greenhouse gases. We will continue to beta test the H2R system to strive for increased efficiency.—Doug Bender, President of HyPower
HyPower currently produces the Hydro Power Pak (HPP)—a retrofit hydrogen generation and injection device developed for use on tractor trailer rigs and stationary diesel engines to improve fuel economy, reduce emissions and increase engine performance and horsepower. The HPP electrolysis unit draws less than 10 amps of the engine’s electrical current to produce a small amount hydrogen and oxygen, which is then injected into the combustion cycle. (Earlier post.)
