Add-On Hydrogen Generator Saves Fuel, Cuts Emissions
HydroGen, an onboard hydrogen or Brown’s Gas generator, saves fuel and reduces emissions dramatically. Developed by Water Fuel Engineering, each HydroGen is custom-designed for the vehicle. Over the past 7-plus years, the devices have been installed on all types of engines, from ATVs to farm tractors and large commercial and municipal trucks. The company has won numerous awards in the U.K. for technical innovation.
“Depending on the engine size, the conditions it operates in, and how it’s used, HydroGen reduces fuel use from 10 to 37 percent and reduces emissions by up to 80 percent,” says Alexander Nenov, Water Fuel Engineering. “HydroGen requires no engine modifications and works with any carbon-based fuel type, diesel, petrol or natural gas.”
Nenov explains that fuel savings take about 2 weeks to develop, as carbon is removed from the cylinders during the first week. Running cleaner is one of the benefits HydroGen provides. Before and after installation testing has shown near zero emissions.
“Users report improved engine response,” says Nenov. “We’ve installed the units in a wide range of engines including JCB, John Deere, and New Holland.”
HydroGen requires only a connection to the alternator to secure the engine signal and output to the air intake where the hydrogen mixes with oxygen in the air. It can be installed on the engine or elsewhere on the vehicle.
“It can be installed under the hood, in a car trunk, or even under or behind a seat,” says Nenov.
The brain of the system is the electronic control unit (ECU). Nenov suggests the ECU gives the HydroGen its efficiency and its fail-safe feature.
“If the device stops working, the vehicle can continue operating as it would without it,” says Nenov. “A lot of Brown’s Gas devices on the market don’t have that feature.”
Development of HydroGen began about 11 years ago. It’s been available in the U.K. since 2016. Since then, it’s been marketed throughout Europe and through a distributor in Southeast Asia. The company set up an office in the U.S. just before the COVID-19 outbreak but closed it due to the pandemic. Nenov reports they’re again looking for a U.S. distributor.
“HydroGen is the best solution to reduce fuel use and emissions in existing engines,” says Nenov. “Contact us for an estimate. All we need to know is the size of the engine, the voltage from the car battery, and how the engine is used.”
