“Our mission to provide lower cost Green Hydrogen and Ammonia for use in existing hydrocarbon fueled and new platforms is being accomplished.”

— Greg Vezina, Hydrofuel Canada Chairman and CEO

Hydrofuel Canada Inc. (“Hydrofuel”), has now entered into an exclusive manufacturing and sales agreement with Technocarb Equipment (2004) Ltd. (“Technocarb”), for the manufacture and sale of H2 and NH3 fuel kits and conversions of hydrocarbon-fueled generators, engines, tractors and grain driers, etc.

Technocarb President Dave Shea said, “We are pleased to be able to collaborate with another world leading Canadian company like Hydrofuel to enhance the hydrocarbon fuel-based engine conversion technologies we have developed and sold for decades for use now with hydrogen and ammonia fuels.”

“Half of the energy of liquid fuels is currently lost between the well head and the fuel pump,” noted Hydrofuel CEO Greg Vezina. “The beauty of combining MAPS production and conversion tech for existing engines is that it lowers both the production and utilization costs – less than any conventional or renewable hydrocarbon – which will allow more industries to adopt green hydrogen and ammonia energy at a lower cost than imports. There is no question that this is a global game changer.”

On Ammonia:

Ammonia is a significant hydrogen energy carrier and is an essential ingredient in fertilizer production globally, making the combined production and utilization technologies applicable to many industrial and agricultural practices.

On MAPS technology:

One such technology is the Micro Ammonia Production System (“MAPS”) technology licensed by Hydrofuel from Georgia Tech. It is being commercialized at Colorado State and provides a sustainable and environmentally friendly production method of NH3. This enables a high ammonia yield rate with unprecedented energy efficiency, decentralizes production while consuming significantly less energy than current methods.

This will enable the production, storage, transportation and utilization of low cost green hydrogen and ammonia in multiple applications, including the conversion of existing fossil fueled engines, generators, etc. using the Hydrofuel-Technocarb conversion technology, or next generation H2 and/or NH3 fuel cells, vehicles, engines, generators, or power units.
