MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Hy-Drive Technologies has filed an additional five new patent applications on its G2 hydrogen generating system (HGS) in order to safeguard various technological advances and the intellectual property around the new system. Officials say the G2 is designed to dramatically increase fuel efficiency, reduce exhaust emissions and improve engine performance on trucks and other commercial vehicles.
Leading up to its commercial launch, the G2 system has already garnered four U.S patents, 10 U.S patent applications, six Canadian patent applications and eight patent applications filed in eight jurisdictions worldwide. The G2 system works by injecting small amounts of hydrogen gas into the combustion chamber of a regular internal combustion engine. The process is designed to create an enriched air mixture and a more complete and faster burn, resulting in reduced emissions, improved fuel efficiency and more engine torque. Hy-Drive officials say the product is easy to install and works with any internal combustion engine, all types of fuel and in almost any climate making a versatile solution for any truck fleet.
“Our technology is unique and we’ve secured all facets of intellectual property around the G2 HGS,” said Tom Brown, president and CEO of Hy-Drive. “Hy-Drive is now on the verge of its first major commercial launch and securing these patents is the final hurdle. We now have the capital, a product which has endured rigorous field tests, and the marketing and sales expertise to succeed in international markets.”
