Ammonia Fuel Conversion System
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA and TORONTO, ON, CANADA October 15, 2007 - Hydrofuel Inc. (Canada, USA, Australia) and Icom North America LLC, a subsidiary of Icom SpA of Italy, ("Icom") are set to announce the first aftermarket NH3 (Ammonia) Fuel vehicle conversion system in the world. This Hydrofuel® branded NH3 fuel system will be available in 2008 for automotive, industrial and agricultural vehicle conversions. The Hydrofuel® system could be also used for OEM applications.
"Through this relationship, we have the technology that can put NH3 (ammonia) into almost any gasoline fuelled vehicle in North America. Ammonia is a widely available North American clean hydrogen based fuel that increases energy security and can be produced from green energy sources. The fuel is expected to retail at half the price of gasoline or diesel fuel. When used as a single fuel in most vehicles with a catalytic converter, there is zero CO2 and NOx emissions are 25% of those of conventional engines," said Greg Vezina, Chairman and CEO of Hydrofuel Inc. Complete systems are estimated to cost $6,000.00 - $8,000.00 installed. Hydrofuel Inc. is also developing conversion systems for all other hydrocarbon based applications including vehicles and stationary engines.
The prototype system will be unveiled at the Fourth Annual Ammonia Fuel Conference in San Francisco, California on Monday October 15, 2007. The companies are negotiating a manufacturing agreement to use Icom's liquid injection JTG system with NH3 (Ammonia) fuel. The modified Icom JTG Hydrofuel® NH3 system will be marketed by Hydrofuel Inc. JTG in Italian equals TRACTION GAS INJECTION which refers to the injection technology utilized. This partnership combines Icom's extensive experience in liquid injection systems for propane and Hydrofuel Inc.'s and its affiliate, C.A.E.C.-Canadian Alternative Energy Corp.'s 27 years of experience in ammonia fuel conversion systems.
