New hydrogen technology generates fuel onboard
Israel-based startup Engineuity
today a new hydrogen fuel technology that avoids problems of fuel distribution and storage by generating hydrogen
onboard the vehicle, as it's needed.
The Engineuity system combines water and a light metal wire (such as aluminum or magnesium) in a conversion unit to produce hydrogen and steam. The pressurized hot gas mixture is fed to a modified internal combustion engine. The only byproduct is a light metal oxide that can be recycled.
In addition to water, the vehicle has to carry a quantity of the metal wire consumed in the process.
