The company has received a patent (#8807098) for this development. The patent is the next step toward adoption by major original manufacturers worldwide of a cost-effective technology that can cut global emissions, slash oil consumption and increase fuel flexibility for consumers. “The Eco-Motive dual fuel ‘H’ engine replaces a single fuel design that has been powering cars for over 100 years. It will offer significant benefits for both consumers and the environment,” said Herns Louis, founder and CEO of Eco-Motive.
The Eco-Motive H-motor can be powered by either gasoline or CNG, at a driver’s prerogative. Each bank of the engine is powered exclusively by one of the two fuels; with the push of a button, the engine can switch from the bank of cylinders fueled by gasoline to the other set using CNG, or vice versa.
“Our intent is to help automakers leverage the plentiful natural gas supplies and existing infrastructure to meet the pending government regulations for emissions and fuel economy,” said Louis. “The internal combustion engine can still be optimized with innovations such as the patented H-motor without a budget-busting expenditure. Our intent is to partner with visionary auto manufacturers who want to leverage this flexible technology worldwide”
A driver in an H-motor power vehicle can fill their CNG tank at home or at a filling station. “Receiving this patent is a huge step forward for my company. Now we can push our engine technology into a market that’s hungry for smart, effective solutions. The infrastructure for CNG-powered vehicles is established and will be prominent in the next couple of decades due to its low costs and high efficiency,” added Louis.
