Hydrogen Generator Exceeds Expectations in Commercial Application
Paisley, Florida | August 1, 2011
Turbine Truck Engines, Inc. (“TTE”) (OTCBB: TTEG) announced today the results of Hydrogen Union Energy Co., Ltd.'s (HUE) initial testing of their 30 cubic meter per hour (m3/h) Hydrogen Generator. The Generator was put into operation at RU FA Chemical Technology Co., Ltd. (www.rufachem.com), located in Wei Fang, Shan Dong Province, China on April 4, 2011 and has run flawlessly since then.
The results of the duration testing, which compares the use of electricity to that of hydrogen, verifies a savings to the company of 1.2 million RMB (approximately $185,000 US) per year. This one unit is saving an equivalent of 60% of the total energy costs in this situation, as opposed to the same function using electricity.
"The H2 burner replaced the electrical heater for the manufacturing of pharmaceutical grade raw materials. The burner at the factory has been burning non-stop at 30 cubic meters per hour for almost four months without a glitch," said the inventor of the technology, Dr. Ching-Chang Chang. "The Hydrogen Generator has achieved amazing savings in terms of energy used. We are so excited this technology has finally arrived and is ready for commercial usage to benefit the environment with low fuel cost, low carbon emission, and almost zero toxic material emission. We have inquiries about this technology from all over the world, and we have already signed an exclusive agency agreement with Turbine Truck Engines in the USA to explore the opportunity of expanding our technology worldwide through the joint effort," Dr. Chang continued.
"Initially, when this technology was developed, it was estimated that it could bring a savings of approximately 35%. After this long term testing has been completed we are very pleased of the results and look forward to the commercialization of this technology," said Michael Rouse, TTE's CEO.
