Australia-based is forming a JV to bring to market a new hydrogen injection technology that can be used to reduce diesel and gasoline fuel usage in passenger, commercial and stationary engines. UHL plans to target heavy diesel vehicles, such as trucks, buses, vans, utes, cement trucks and waste collection vehicles while also focusing on stationary engines such as generators or mining equipment.
UHL has finalized a joint venture with a technical partner, which will give have exclusive global distribution rights to hydrogen injection kits that are retrofitted onto internal combustion engines to produce hydrogen onboard and inject it into an engine to reduce fuel usage by up to 20%.
The kits can also reduce the amount of smoke coming out of the exhaust by up to 50%, which will reduce air pollution and extend the life of an engine as there is less dirty particulates going through it.
In 2020, Australia consumed 28.5 billion litrers of diesel; this hydrogen technology has the potential to save up to 5.7 billion liters annually and stop 15.39 billion kilograms of carbon from being emitted into the atmosphere.
With a technical partner that has products ready for market, UHL plans to launch the JV company over the next week and begin taking orders. UHL is currently looking for global distribution partners and customers.
