HyEngine Converts Internal Combustion Engines to run on H2

Over the past year I’ve exchanged a few emails with Jonas Grooten of HyEngine Solutions. Instead of working on fuel cells, HyEngine converts vehicles with internal combustion engines to run on hydrogen.

Here is what Jonas Grooten had to say in his last email:

“My colleague, Olivier Vanhaelen, asked me to give you an update about our projects. Our HyRacer project is currently finished. We have implemented our 1.6 L Honda engine into a Honda Civic, which can now drive completely hydrogen powered with the same performances as when it drives on petrol (both 82 HP without use of turbo or compression). Thanks to our patented technology, we also do not have any backfire-problems.

“Our technicians are currently working on our next project: The HyMega. The HyMega will be a small logistical application for indoor & outdoor use. For this, we are converting a 700cc engine which will deliver about 15 HP.

“Furthermore are we currently developing a kart engine. By implementing an H2 ICE in a kart, we want to provide 0-emission kart engines which will maintain all the aspects of karting as we currently know it (vibrations, sound). We expect this project to be finished by the end of February.”

While many companies are investing their time, energy, resources and money into fuel cell vehicles, HyEngine is taking a practical and cost-effective approach of converting internal combustion engines to run on hydrogen.

Here’s a PDF that explains in more detail what HyEngine is doing.

  1. This is old technology.
    Did you know the Germans burned hydrogen in the air ships in the 1920s to 1930s?
    As the engines burned the diesel fuel and got lighter the ship would rise so they bled hydrogen into the engines for added fuel and to keep their altitude from going to high.
    I have been wondering when someone would start doing this again.

    This is old technology. Did you know the first hydrogen car was created in 1807?

    When hydrogen cars become the status quo, the U. S. can lessen its dependence upon foreign oil, achieve lower prices at the fuel pumps and cut down on the greenhouse gases that produce global warming.

  4. Is there a carburetor retro-fit kit to convert internal combustion engines to run solely on HOH? What would be the equivalent consumption of HOH to drive a combustion engine on gas without a sacrifice in performance. Would a CNG kit allow one to use HOH in the same manner?

    Thank you personal interest,
