HydroPhi Technologies Group, Inc. (HPTG) is a developer of water-based hydrogen fuel production systems. The Company's technology isn't a fuel cell, nor is it a hydrogen alternative to traditional hydrocarbon fuels. The system utilizes distilled water for the production of hydrogen and oxygen, which is then injected into the air intake of an engine utilizing carbon-based fuels such as diesel, unleaded gasoline and natural gas. HPTG's technology, (HydroPlant™) has been company tested with resulting reduced vehicle operating costs by improved fuel efficiency up to 20%, while lowering greenhouse gas emissions up to 70%. By using an on-board, on-demand electrolysis system to separate hydrogen and oxygen from water, the technology eliminates the need for high-pressure hydrogen storage or hazardous chemicals while producing a stable, inexpensive alternative fuel source. By offering a real-time monitoring system as part of a hydrogen fuel solution with retrofit capability into standard vehicle engines, HPTG provides fuel efficiency to a potentially broad spectrum of users, including logistics, trucking, heavy equipment, marine and agriculture.
