Comparative Test Results

SGS, Inc. has been the world’s leader in verification, testing, certification, and inspection for over 134 years; with over 70,000 employees and 1,350 offices worldwide. In May of 2012, SGS completed independent testing of the HPBS confirming and documenting the system's hydrogen production results.

The following table shows the results of testing conducted (separate from SGS testing) to compare the efficiency of the methanol reforming Hydrogen Production Burner System to that of a conventional diesel fuel burner. For these repeated tests, the amount of fuel required for each device to raise the temperature of a controlled quantity of water by approximately 65º F was carefully recorded. The expense of the fuel consumed in these tests was then calculated and compared to determine the relative efficiency (or inefficiency) of each device's process:
