    Here’s an article found in Hydrogen Central  that talks about the hydrogen and ammonia fuel kits unleashed by Hydrofuel and Technocarb.

    According to the article,

    • Hydrofuel and Technocarb have entered into an exclusive agreement for hydrogen and ammonia fuel kits and conversions.
    • Hydrofuel has 40 years of experience in ammonia energy and fuel systems technologies.
    • Technocarb’s conversion technologies use computer-controlled, closed-loop fuel metering systems.
    • Combining MAPS production and conversion technology lowers costs and environmental impact.

    Hydrofuel and Technocarb are leading a significant shift in energy technology by focusing on converting traditional hydrocarbon-fueled engines to operate on hydrogen (H2) and ammonia (NH3). Here’s an informative breakdown of their fuel conversion kits and the technologies involved:

    1. Conversion Kit Technology

    • Compatibility: The kits are designed to convert existing diesel and gas engines, generators, tractors, and grain dryers to utilize hydrogen and ammonia as fuels. This broad compatibility is pivotal in making the technology accessible for various industries, including agriculture and manufacturing.
    • Components: Typically, conversion kits include a fuel management system, new injectors, control unit software updates, and storage solutions for the alternative fuels. These components ensure that the engines can handle the new fuel types without compromising performance.
    • Efficiency: By converting to hydrogen and ammonia, the efficiency of energy use is significantly improved. Ammonia, as a hydrogen carrier, allows for easier storage and transportation of hydrogen, mitigating some of the traditional challenges associated with hydrogen fuel.

    2. Micro Ammonia Production System (MAPS)

    • Technology Source: Developed by Georgia Tech and commercialized at Colorado State, MAPS technology allows for the onsite production of ammonia with high energy efficiency.
    • Benefits: It reduces the need for large-scale infrastructure by enabling local production. This decentralizes ammonia production and significantly lowers the energy consumption compared to traditional methods.
    • Applications: Apart from being used as a fuel, ammonia produced via MAPS can also serve as a vital component in fertilizer production, enhancing its utility in agricultural applications.

    3. Environmental and Economic Impact

    • Reduction in Carbon Footprint: By switching to hydrogen and ammonia, engines emit far fewer pollutants compared to conventional fossil fuels. This shift contributes significantly to efforts in reducing the environmental impact of existing engine technologies.
    • Cost-effectiveness: The combined effect of MAPS and the conversion technology reduces both production and operational costs. This makes green hydrogen and ammonia economically competitive against conventional and renewable hydrocarbon fuels, potentially leading to broader adoption.
