Fuel cells from Ballard Power
Ballard Power is based in a suburb of Vancouver on the Canadian west coast and develops and distributes fuel cells. The company's innovations can be used in a variety of applications. According to the company, the fuel cells can be used in automobiles, buses, trucks, boats, unmanned aerial vehicles, forklifts, power supplies and trains.
In the context of the current hydrogen hype, investors are lacking alternative investment opportunities and despite losses in the first nine months of this year, the company achieved a market capitalization of over CAD 2 billion.
dynaCERT makes diesel greener
dynaCERT from Toronto has focused over the past 15 years on the development of a hydrogen technology that can increase the efficiency of diesel engines. According to the company's website, the test results of this technology are impressive, as diesel consumption is reduced by up to 19%. In addition, the emission of pollutants is avoided. NOx emissions are reduced by up to 88%, CO by up to 48% and CO2 by up to 9%. A reduction of up to 55% could also be measured in particulate matter emissions.
As an example, the savings in consumption contribute to the fact that the acquisition costs for a unit for a truck can be amortized within about one year. The environment is spared by reduced pollutant emissions and because the technology is retrofitted, existing vehicles can continue to be used - the environment benefits twice with dynaCERT.
