Reports By Government On HHO Injection
Hydrogen on Demand
Over the next 50 years, hydrogen use is expected to grow dramatically as an automotive and electrical power source fuel. As hydrogen becomes commercially viable, the safety concerns associated with hydrogen systems, equipment, and operation are of concern to the commercial motor vehicle industry. This report is intended to provide guidelines for use of hydrogen fuel as an alternative fuel by a commercial vehicle fleet operator to ensure long-term safe operation.

Today, virtually all commercial trucks are powered by diesel fuel, while private cars are fueled by gasoline. While these petroleum-based fossil fuels have served society well for many years, their supply is limited, and their use creates pollution that contributes to poor air quality in many areas. Supported by our National Energy Policy, a new generation of technologies is currently being developed that allow the use of hydrogen as a fuel to power cars and trucks (see Table 1). In the future, hydrogen may be used in one of three ways to power vehicles:
To produce electricity in a fuel cell,
As a replacement for gasoline or diesel fuel in an internal combustion engine, or
• As a supplement to gasoline or diesel fuel used in an internal
1. To reduce harmful pollution from vehicle exhaust
To reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, which contribute to global warming.
2. To reduce our growing dependence on foreign oil
3. This document was developed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration as a reference for commercial vehicle fleet owners and operators who use hydrogen fuel in their vehicles, and it primarily focuses on safety. All motor fuels, including diesel fuel, gasoline, and natural gas pose risks of fire and explosion if handled improperly. Hydrogen is no different. Complete HHO PDF

Reveiw of latest Gov. Grant
Folks: here is the link for the Dept of Energy (DOE) ARPA-E funding application.
http://arpa- e.energy. gov/keydocs/ ARPA-E-FOA. PDF -- You can download it from our Free HHO Stuff Page Also.
Unfortunately This opportunity has passed and below are comments from some of the "Big Boys" in the Hydrogen on Demand development industry that were applying or tryed to apply.
Our new president has allocated Billions for "New Energy" so I suggest we learn from this application get our HHO research documented and be ready to grab a grant when the next offer comes around.
Happy grant-writing to you all - continue your hydrogen on demand projects - we can do this!
On page 14 it says you must submit a cover sheet a week before the concept deadline that is showing June 2, 2009 on the top page of the grant. Why do they hide a secret deadline ?
That 4-6 week registration process sounds like Catch-22 BS. They didn't even publish the Funding Opportunity Announcement until April 27th, about 5 weeks short of the due date for Concept Papers.
Nice to have this information, though.
I emailed the Contracting Officer and he said I was too late because I hadn't gotten a D&B number and website by the May 28 deadline but that I could submit an unsolicited application or wait until the next offer. I think several of us should email him and say, "We are individual researchers without academic credentials who have the solutions you are seeking. We will make these technologies available with or without your help. If you want working technologies quickly, we suggest you find or develop a program or way to work with us, in ways that we can qualify for funding."
Gents, if you think the hidden deadline is a crock there is also a section where the government may take certain liberties with your invention, but you still own it? This is something you really need to study but you can negotiate through it if you are considered.
I waded through this 40 plus page document and got the following out of it: 1) We need to be registered with the feds as a research entity. They will not recognize the application unless we do. It takes a month or more for all the background checks and clearances necessary to gain access to their libraries for technical data on file which is a must; 2) This is a program set up for folks who are already into the Kind of R & D that would be necessary to pull this off. You need to be a doctor of something, like a PhD in engineering or physics.
Both are seemingly small details but need to be considered to gain access to the research funds.
