Mississauga, ON – Hy-Drive Technologies Ltd. announced that it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with U.S.-based WorldKlass Technologies to jointly deploy equipment designed to cut the fuel consumption and emissions of diesel generators. The Mississauga-based company’s Alternate Energy Combustion Control System is used largely in diesel engines to reduce fuel consumption emissions in automotive diesel engines by injecting hyrdrogen during the combustion process.
WorldKlass, a private company based in Allentown Pennsylvania, has developed complimentary Infrared Fuel Ceramics technology can be applied to all hydrocarbon fueled internal combustion engines to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Due to the high fuel consumption of power generation equipment, much of WorldKlass’s focus has been targeted at this market.
“We did a lot of research on companies using hydrogen as both a main and secondary fuel source and decided Hy-Drive had the best on-demand delivery system in terms of volume, quality and safety. We are also impressed with Hy-Drive’s support infrastructure. This MOU allows us to expand our reach by actively deploying our respective technologies as a single source to achieve maximum efficiency in both fuel consumption and emissions reduction,” said Bill Grovatt, President of WorldKlass.
