Existing Fleet Conversion provides immediate economic and environmental benefits

Hy-Drive injects hydrogen to boost mileage and lower emissions

Hy-Drive Technologies (HGS-V) is in the final phase of a Hydrogen Generating System (HGS). The HGS generates, on-demand, and injects small amounts of hydrogen gas into the combustion chamber of a regular internal combustion engine creating an enriched air mixture and a more complete and faster burn of the air-fuel mixture. The result is reduced emissions and improved fuel efficiency and torque.

The initial application of Hy-Drive’s technologies is its proprietary "on-board" hydrogen and oxygen gas generation and injection system for internal combustion engines. The initial target markets for Hy-Drive are the existing commercial diesel-powered trucks and buses in the "after-market".

The Time is Right for Gas-guzzler to Dual-mode EV Conversions

Since early 2008, Axion Power International (AXPW.OB) has been quietly developing an experience base and building grass roots support for a gas-guzzler to dual-mode EV conversion initiative that has the short-term potential to transform up to 120 million gas-guzzling pickup trucks, sport utility vehicles and vans into gas sipping EV-50s. If recent articles from sources as diverse as The Daily GreenEdmunds Green Car Advisorand the Environmental Defense Fund are reliable indicators, the initiative is rapidly gaining ground.

The concept is simple – add electric power trains and battery packs to America's least fuel-efficient vehicles and give them 50 miles of plug-in EV range coupled with unlimited internal combustion range. The potential benefits to the economy are enormous because the U.S. could slash gasoline consumption by a billion gallons per year for every 1% of the gas-guzzler fleet that's converted to dual-mode. It's also a solution that could be immediately implemented using domestic products and create untold thousands of new cleantech jobs.

The first public discussion of Axion's gas-guzzler conversion initiative was in Dr. Edward Buiel's testimony before the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources last July. A few months later, Andrew Grove, the former chairman of Intel, published an article in McKinsey Quarterly titled "An Electric Plan for Energy Resilience" that approached the topic from a slightly different perspective. While Dr. Buiel's testimony focused on using lead-acid batteries and Mr. Grove's article focused on using Li-ion batteries, both men reached the same conclusion: that gas-guzzler to dual-mode EV conversions are the most cost effective baby-steps America can take in its drive for energy independence.
