Diesel fuel cell

The reformer above takes the hydrogen out of the Diesel, below a fuel cell to make electric power. First time planed as a 4 kW APU for a frozen goods truck.

It's not allowed in the USA to operate Diesel generators at night time on parking places. But this would be also an ideal generator for light weight hybrid cars.   See progress 2007
Top innovations for mobility
This top innovations will make sure, that our mobility will not decrease with the end of the fossile age.

Hybrid cars
Why arrived the hybrid car not earlier. What problems solves the hybrid car? Can the hybrid succeed against cars with hydrogen and fuel cells?

Generators for serial hybrid vehicles
Even the most modern battery technology does not bring the range of the combustion engine. With a generator for long distances mutates the electric car to a serial hybrid car.

  Hannover industry fair 2006 hall 13

Fair report part mobility. Other parts: renewable energy, energy for small appliances with special report Mobility in India and energy in India.

Lithium ion batteries for vehicles Lithium ion batteries for vehicles
The future mobility will be based substantially on battery technology on lithium base. With Gaia, a German enterprise also takes part in the race around this future market.

Formula Zero instead of formula 1 for innovation Formula Zero instead of formula 1 for innovation
Finally, a new racing sport series with innovation. The formula 1 had been innovative once in the autoconstruction, but in the present, many new technologies has not to be used in formula 1 race cars.

Ford C hydrogen Ford C hydrogen
The description provides confusion. 350 bar and 119 liters of pressure tank would be 3.75 kg hydrogen. However, on a stand in the exhibition booth it written 2.75 kg hydrogen in the tank..

Honda FCX Hydrogen Honda FCX Hydrogen
Honda shows at the Hannover fair 2006 a small car with hydrogen gas tank and fuel cells.

Hydrogen gas tank Hydrogen gas tank
This construction for a high pressure hydrogen tank is suitable for 700 bar. The biggest model has 32 liters of contents. 5.4% of the mass are stored hydrogen.

Liquid tank for hydrogen Liquid tank for hydrogen
Linde shows a 120 litres liquid hydrogen tank in Hannover. 90 kg weight and up to 8 bar inside pressure to have not to blow off the evaporated hydrogen immediately.

Hydrogen scooter Hydrogen scooter
It should come on the market in 5 years. The exhibitor was in a hurry to catch his airplane to spain. So he had no time to tell us about the mystery:

India scooter India scooter
For many Indians the main vehicle. This India scooter TVS Scooty Pept has an air cooled 4 stroke engine with 88ccm and 3,68 kW at 6500 rpm and a continuously variable gear.

India motorcycle India motorcycle
Indian motorcycle TVS Victor GLX 125, aircooled 125 ccm one cylinder 4 stroke engine with 7 kW and 4 gears.

India motorbike India motorbike
Indian motorbike TVS Apache, aircooled 150ccm one cylinder 4 stroke engine with 10kW an 5 gears.

India tractor India tractor
India tractor with water cooled 2 cylinder 4 stroke Diesel engine. 10 gears forward and 2 gears reverse are for 1 to 22 km/h speed.

India tractor truck combination India tractor truck combination
The HTM tractor developt in India has 65 km/h top speed. This makes it possible for the farmer to transport goods also on longer distances on a trailer.

Electric quad - Quad drive electrically
Such a Quad was also seen on the EVER Monaco in 2006. However, in Monaco it was equipped with sealed lead batteries. Here it is reequipped to Gaia lithium batteries. Quad tuning
In this Quad hab been sealed lead acid batteries originally installed. To test his own products, Gaia replaced this with a block from 14 pices 60 Ah Lithium batteries Hydrogen kart
The 5 liters hydrogen bottle contains with 200 bar compressed 1 m³ hydrogen. This are 2.97 kWh of chemical energy or about 1.25 kWh electric power from the fuel cell. Fuel cell kart
The fuel cell of the karts has only 8 kW. The hydrogen bootle is just enough for 9 minutes full power. How to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h with only 8 kW? Ultra condensers in the racing sport
This is the method to accelerate in less than 8 seconds from 0 to 100 with an only 8 kW fuel call. The fuel cell produces constantly full load. Honda FCX hydrogen tank
To open the left lid for the compressed gas tank, it's necessary to connect first the ground cables at the right lid. Honda FCX interior
From the interior nothing betrays in case of the first consideration about fuel and drive technology. It looks like in a quite normal car with automatic. Refueling with liquid hydrogen
Nothing is more easy than to transfer -253 degree Celsius cold liquid hydrogen from one thak to an other tank. Linde shows the nozzle for the transfer. Fuel cell scooter
Only the frame with the hydrogen tank was to see in Hannover. Around this will be a built up a scooter with fuel cells. The hydrogen bottles are to be exchanged. Scooter: battery or hydrogen
Each of the 4 bottles has 2 litre volume and can be filled wiht 700 bar. This should give 30km range per bottle to a scooter. Exchange price 20.-EUR per bottle.
