On Monday, Turbine Truck Engines, Inc. announced that they have become the Exclusive Agent in North America for the Hydrogen Energy Production System (HEPS). HEPS is an efficient methanol to hydrogen production technology of Hydrogen Union Energy Co., Ltd. Taiwan (HUE).
Mr. Michael Rouse, Turbine Truck Engines, Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are very excited about our rapidly developing relationship with HUE, and I believe that their technology will play an important role in reshaping the way the world produces power.”
HEPS is a low-pressure production system. It enables users to produce hydrogen on site, therefore eliminating storage safety issues typically associated with hydrogen power applications. The applications for the HEPS technology include but are not limited to, home heating and cooking, outdoor heating, incinerators, boilers, industrial furnaces, and turbine applications.
HEPS reduces fuel costs and is environment friendly. Early tests of the system showed a 47 percent fuel cost reduction in comparison to diesel and a 57 percent reduction in comparison to liquid propane. The production of hydrogen is on-site so this essentially eliminates transportation costs. As a green technology system, it contributes significantly to preserving the environment because the emissions from hydrogen are safer than those of diesel, propane, or other fuels.
Turbine Truck Engines, Inc. filed an 8K detailing the agreement on June 20, 2011. The Company previously had a similar agreement with Falcon Power Co. Ltd. This agreement was terminated by mutual consent as HUE now has the exclusive rights to manufacture, market, and distribute the HEPS technology.
Headquartered in Paisley, Florida, Turbine Truck Engines, Inc. is a technology company. They are focusing on the development, manufacture, and testing of their new energy efficient and environmentally friendly engine. They will distribute the engine in the U.S and internationally.
The engine is intended for use in the transportation and power generation sectors. It can use any fuel that can be gasified (gasoline, diesel, propane, natural gas, hydrogen, methanol, ethanol or LPG) or fuel mixture. However, it needs little or no coolant, lube oil, filters, or pumps.
The engine’s unique, lightweight turbine design has few moving parts. This significantly reduces maintenance costs. The innovative cyclic detonation process produces a near-complete combustion of fuel-oxidizer mixtures. The results are greater fuel economy and fewer harmful exhaust emissions.
