Qatar Car Sports Hydrogen Gas Saver Technology

The first thing one has to ask is, “Is this for real?” And of course the answer is “Maybe.” There is a car in Qatar (I just love saying that) which showed up for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP18).

This Qatar car was sporting a hydrogen gas saving device that uses electrolysis of water to create hydrogen and supplement the fuel in the engine. The makers of the device say it works on cars primarily powered by gasoline or compressed natural gas.

According to the press release, “The fuel cell is powered primarily by a thermoelectric generator which recovers heat from exhaust-gases and is aided by a thin film photo-voltaic on the sunroof. Preliminary studies have demonstrated decreased vehicle pollutant emissions such as carbon monoxide (CO) & nitrous oxide (NOX) by more than 50 % …

“ … Commenting on the differences between GORD’s eco-hybrid concept and other hydrogen-powered cars by leading automobile manufacturers, Dr Al Horr added, ‘Our car produces electricity at no cost by capturing thermal waste energy, reducing costs and eliminating the need for an external source of electricity. Also, bulky compressed-hydrogen cylinders are a thing of the past, as our concept accomplishes the production of hydrogen by using water through fuel cells integrated within the car.’”

Now, I’m a little leery when it comes to the description of this device when the term “fuel cell” is used instead of “hydrogen generator”. I’m also a little leery since it wasn’t made clear until the end of the press release that this device created supplementary hydrogen and that H2 is not the main fuel source for the vehicle. And I am concerned about the ‘no cost’ comment as well.

On the other hand, what if this device does as it is billed to do, which is reduce fuel consumption by more than 20-percent? The Qatar car may be a little far-fetched to some. But on the other hand, it may set the bar and actually become a star compared to other similar automotive devices.

    Hydrogen gas has been identified as a potential energy carrier in many GHG energy scenarios and now we are proud to tell you that we have found a solution to approach the technology to produce, distribute and use hydrogen in a cost effective manner.

    The need to produce hydrogen gas and renewable energies nowadays has created lots of different methods.

    The purpose of this method is to set up a simple model without creating a product line or a special workshop space and other harsh conditions.

    The distinctions of this scheme compared to any other methods are:
    – This method does not require natural gas or fossil fuels.
    – There is no need to establish complex refinery facilities.
    – There is no need to purify after producing gas.
    – Hydrogen scientific research centers, laboratories, Chemical gas consumer and etc can be easily built under any circumstances, also there are no spatial constraints or Geographic restrictions such as war zones, military exercises, impassable and remote areas (mountains, islands, poles, etc.)
    We look forward to a successful working relationship in the future.
