University works on hydrogen engine for passenger cars

The experiment started at the Kuzbass State Technical University, evaluating hydrogen-powered fuel-saving technologies.

The project members are certain that the intake manifold will hold up, and a car with over 150 000 kilometers on it won’t either. An essential component of the research is the running engine. Fourth-year student Ruslan Baranov noted that in addition to driving 100 kilometers daily, measuring the number of harmful compounds discharged into the atmosphere every three days is also necessary. A specific gadget will be added to the gasoline engine after a few weeks of labor.

“From the water, the device will produce hydrogen. Andrey Kudrevatykh, head of the KuzGTU automobile operating department, stated, “We will send it in very small amounts through the input pipeline to the engine cylinders.

The project manager is certain that safety is ensured, and the combination of water and gasoline is now a benefit rather than a theory. Mikhail Vasnev, a fourth-year student at KuzGTU, claims that the hydrogen engine is more ecologically friendly, has lower fuel consumption, and requires less upkeep.

This is an additive rather than a substitute for gasoline. When Moscow scientists achieved success on Moskvich-412 fifty years ago, all that was left were the records. By the end of 2022, a team of KuzGTU experts hopes to demonstrate their proposal and reduce hydrogen energy. After that, they’ll consider producing a whole new engine or generator in series with the designation “Made in Kemerovo.”
