Hydrogen Nano Bubble Storage Technology Advances

This week I was able to chat with Louis Ventre, Jr. who is the Executive VP and General Counsel for HCE, LLC. HCE has just filed a U. S. patent application for hydrogen nano bubble storage methods based upon the work of the late inventor Udo von Wimmersperg.

The theory behind the patent is that hydrogen bubbles at a nano scale can be dispersed and stored in water. This water in turn can be stored in a container at atmospheric pressure and ambient temperatures. These hydrogen nano bubbles then can be released for use in hydrogen internal combustion engines and fuel cells. So essentially these nano scale water bubbles are filled with hydrogen at very high pressures, up to 43,500 pounds per square inch before being released. This “juiced” water, however, does not have to be stored any differently than a combustible liquid such as gasoline.

According to the HCE, “The method used to release gas from the aqueous dispersion depends on the application. In the case of an internal combustion engine one might choose to inject the dispersion into the inlet manifold and carry the water through the combustion and expansion process. Alternatively, the gas can be separated by weakening the surface tension of the water through raising the temperature of the dispersion. This can be done, for example, by utilizing waste heat. Another method to release hydrogen would be to introduce an additive that lowers surface tension. The rate at which gas separation from liquid can be effected is related to prevention of foaming. In the case of fuel cells, it may be advantageous to introduce the gas in dispersion.”

Once again, according to the company, “The invention of a new liquid fuel consisting of a dispersion of hydrogen nanobubbles in water solves this problem. The hydrogen nanobubble dispersion (HND) can be carried in a normal fuel tank and can be used as a direct replacement of gasoline in conventional engines. The vehicle range per gallon of HND is the same as that for gasoline. In addition there is a saving in weight by a factor two because of the lower density of HND; this aspect is of particular benefit in the case of aircraft fuel.”

Many people will turn up their noses when one mentions running a car on water. There is no evidence that a car has run on water alone to date. But, this juiced water along with leading edge hydrogen nano bubble storage technology may just allow us to rethink the possibilities of how future hydrogen cars will be fueled and what it will take to get us to this point. Many thanks to Louis Ventre, Jr. for his insights and information about this new “outside-the-box” technology.

  1. At what temp does this water freeze?
    If it is the same as normal water then this needs to be addressed.
    Are there any problems with drownding the spark plugs?
    Also the energy needed to get the hydrogen is still a problem. So far the ruel is 4 units of energy are required to get enough hydrogen to have 1 unit of energy returned.

  2. If the hydrogen nano bubble can be effectively stored in a car’s fuel tank, will there be occurring problems regarding the pressure point of the tank. Aside from that is the temperature security of the tanks since hydrogen is a very active element? Aside from that, i think there will definitely be a problem in drawing hydrogen into this form, we might be just transferring the energy from conserving the car’s efficiency, while we are using so much energy in producing this fuel.

  3. why hho works: If you are using ONLY hydrogen THEN you might have to expend 4 units of energy to receive one unit back, but in this example WE ARE ALSO USING GASOLINE!
    I am an environmental scientist with extensive medical and scientific knowledge, and I am getting 55.55 MPG on a 1997 Ford Ranger 2.3 L 4 Cyl pickup truck, by fracturing water into it’s basic elements {hydrogen and
    oxygen}, using the electrical system of the vehicle for hydrolysis, and burning the resultant explosive gasses by injection into the air intake, at the throttle body. Also employed is a Master Air Flow Sensor Enhancer,
    to lean out the gasoline, I also am running a VOLO Performance Chip for the O2 sensors, which changes the ignition timing, {optimizing for the hydrogen enriched atmosphere of the combustion chambers, and giving the piston 100% stroke range by exploding the mixture at the extreme top of the combustion chambers}, takes over the Electronic Control Unit,
    {telling it not to compensate with additional fuel}, and does a host of other things, {like when the A/C is turned on, the engine DOES NOT INCREASE RPM, AS PER FACTORY SETTINGS, IT INCREASES MUCH LESS THAN FACTORY}, So, YOU CAN’T TELL ME THAT HHO DOESN’T WORK! You ” YOU CAN’T GET MORE OUT THAN YOU PUT IN” people do not realize WHY HHO WORKS! HHO acts as a catalyst, releasing the stored energy in water!

    HHO works due to the catalytic cracking of the larger gasoline molecules into the dynamic combusting single-carbon molecules of methane and methanol,
    in the presence of heat, a catalyst, and water vapor. THIS YIELDS A MUCH FASTER BURNING, AND MORE HIGHTLY VOLATILE MIXTURE INSIDE THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER, THE MIXTURE EXPLODES MORE RAPIDLY AND WITH EXPONENTIALLY GREATER FORCE, DRIVING THE PISTONS DOWN HARDER, POWERING THE ENGINE WITH MUCH
    GREATER EFFICIENCY! {DON’T FORGET GASOLINE WAS DESIGNED TO EXPLODE} The HHO gas, although burning at a higher temperature… BURNS MUCH MORE QUICKLY THAN GASOLINE. Due to the much shorter time element involved in the burning,
    the HHO gas actually BURNS MORE QUICKLY, MORE CLEANLY, AND OVERALL, MUCH COOLER THAN GASOLINE, and so, the engine, overall, will actually run
    noticeably cooler! Here’s why…

    Imagine the tiny spark given off by a spark plug. Auto makers already know this tiny spark is not really sufficeint to ignite the gasoline/air mixture
    effectively. That is why Ford uses TWO SPARK PLUGS FOR EACH CYL IN THE 2.3 L ENGINES! That’s right! Ford uses eight spark plugs in the 4 cyl engine! Re-
    member, this tiny spark is what ignites the gasoline. Now, imagine that same gasoline ignited by an explosion of surrounding hydroxy gas. BANG! A tiny
    soda cap full, yes a CAP-FULL of this gas will yield an explosion so loud it will make your ears ring, and produce a flash, that at night, may be seen over a mile away! A CUP-full of hydroxy gas may produce a bang so loud that it can actually rupture your eardrums, causing permanent, irreversible, HEARING IMPAIRMENT AND DEAFNESS! This instant ignition of the slower-burning complex hydrocarbons used in gasoline, will cause the complete burning of the
    air/gasoline mixture. Gasoline, comprised of complex hydrocarbons, many molecules long, takes forever to burn compared to the simple structure of a single hydrogen atom. COMPARED TO GASOLINE, THE HHO BURNS PRACTICALLY INSTANTLY. POW! This effect speeds up the rate of combustion causing more
    total combustion to the process which means more mechanical energy from the engine. Hydroxy gas surrounding the gasoline/air mixture, causes an ex-
    ponentially more powerful explosion in the combustion chamber, triggering a stronger piston stroke, which gives an increase in horsepower, a NOTICIBLE increase in overall performance, and EXCEPTIONALLY EXTENDED GASOLINE MPG,
    BECAUSE WITH HHO, IT TAKES LESS GASOLINE! I AM TALKING ABOUT A PERFORMANCE
    IMPROVEMENT THAT YOU CAN FEEL IN ACCELERATION, AND POWER, MY 4 CYL DRIVES
    LIKE A BIG 6! I JUST LOVE TO LEAVE UNSUSPECTING v-8S SITTING AT THE GREEN
    LIGHT AND I AM GONE!!

    In small 4 cyl engines, already designed for greater gasoline efficeiency, using HHO, and with the use of a MAP/MAF ENCAHCING DEVICE TO HANDLE THE O2
    SENSORS… {Or something like a VOLO PERFORMANCE CHIP FOR HHO}, EXTREME
    MILEAGE MAY BE ACHIEVED.

    On a personal level, my 1997 Ford truck, using HHO, has 60 ADDITIONAL HORSEPOWER, GETS EXTENDED GAS MILEAGE, HAS 80 PERCENT FEWER EMISSIONS, HAS A CLEANER ENGINE WITH LESS CARBON DEPOSITS, AND… actually runs cooler
    WITH HHO, by far, it is noticable on the temp gauge and FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, THIS OLD TRUCK HAS ICE COLD AIR-CONDITIONING!!! Now, been 3900 miles on HHO, SAVING ALMOST 100 GALLONS OF GASOLINE! AT TODAY’S PRICES, THAT’S $367.00! It paid for it’s self in only 3 months!

    Do not listen to the naysayers, they are wrong, and I just proved it!!! HHO DOES IN FACT WORK! PERIOD! I’LL BET THESE NAYSAYERS HAVE NEVER EVEN TRIED!! PHOTOS AVAILABLE OF THE TRUCK, AND HHO INSTALLATION UPON REQUEST! As stated…
    55.55 MPG of gasoline with the HHO! The First Law of Thermal Dynamics is being MISAPPLIED TO HHO!! I WANT TO SEE JUST ONE OF YOU NAYSAYER, IT WON’T WORK, CAN’T GET MORE OUT THAN YOU PUT IN, EPA FOLKS, CHALLENGE ME! Please!
