CGON unveils hydrogen solution
British manufacturer CGON has released a revolutionary new range of hydrogen additive products that can reduce engine emissions by up to 80% and offer fuel savings of up to 20%.
Developed over the last eight years at its research and development facility in the UK and tested extensively on the road, CGON’s independently verified technology significantly reduces emissions such as CO2, HC, NOx, PM and PN.
Designed, produced and manufactured in the UK, the 100% recyclable ezero hydrogen additive box is fitted within the engine bay and can be used on any fossil fuel engine, from petrol to diesel to LPG.
The system works by introducing small amounts of very pure, very powerful hydrogen directly into the inlet chamber where it combines with the fuel-air mixture. The resulting hydrogen-fuel-air mix – which has a cooler burn that’s faster than a conventional mix – creates a more complete combustion cycle.
The result is that almost all waste gases are eliminated, drastically reducing harmful emissions. And because CGON’s technology increases engine efficiency, less fuel is used, with real-world drivers reporting savings of up to 20%. In addition, in a diesel engine, the much cleaner emissions also put less stress on the particulate filter resulting in reduced maintenance and time off the road.
Simon Johnson, CEO of CGON said, ‘Air quality, especially in cities, is one of the great challenges of our time. You can’t open a newspaper without reading about vehicle emissions in urban centres around the world. Over 100,000 cars fail their MoT each month on emissions alone in the UK. CGON’s ezero technology tackles this problem head-on by reducing particulates and NOx. We have completed testing of hundreds of vehicles at certified MoT stations and recorded an average 80% reduction in overall emissions, while also giving the consumer the added benefit of improved fuel efficiency. Independent testing by Emissions Analytics verifies our own testing, showing a huge reduction in emissions.
‘We have completed millions of miles of testing and the result is a credible and independently verified, low-maintenance product that could literally change the air we breathe, improve air quality on a global scale and save thousands of lives every year. The results speak for themselves.’
