Revolve Technologies Ltd has recently successful tested a Diesel powered Van operating on Hydrogen.

This ground breaking work was conducted by the Revolve alternative fuels development group lead by Dr Rachel Stewart, with support from lead Technologist’s Stephen Pegrum and Charles Morgan and a TSB SMART grant.

This innovation has been termed H2ICEDtm  by the team and uses fine control of the Diesel common rail system to inject a very small quantity of diesel at the right time to initiate the controlled combustion of the Hydrogen. Paul Turner the Technical Director of Revolve said “this is a revolution in hydrogen propulsion and will open the way to bring commercial vehicles into the hydrogen era, and it’s a magical feeling to have played a part in such a ground breaking engineering project”.
