Hydrogen Product Development

Bill Ross

Bill Ross ran his first truck off pure hydrogen in 1979. Since then, he’s been working with electrolysis to reduce emissions from combustion engines. He has patented several electrolysis applications related to four stroke engines which have been validated to show reduced fuel consumption and emissions. Bill brings a wealth of mechanical knowledge to the team and has integrated an electrolysis system into our drive train. Regenerative braking instantly creates a lot of power and can damage batteries; Bill’s electrolysis system harnesses this power like a capacitor and uses it to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, which is stored for later use in a purpose built linear generator.
