Akvo Energy America's process involves hydrogen extraction from water via plasmatic induction, a form of electrolysis, using a small amount of electricity. The hydrogen then powers an internal combustion engine. The inventor, James Hunt, alleges that one fill-up will power a vehicle for 1 year, with zero emissions. Potential applications also include power plants and desalinization facilities.

"Akvo" is Esperanto for "water".

"Currently, the portable, on-demand, hydrogen production system safely converts ordinary water into hydrogen in sufficient quantity to power an existing internal combustion engine with minimal changes to the vehicle and does this without damaging the environment and will address customer convenience as well as safety, economic and ecological concerns on many levels." -- CSC Inventor's Club Blog, June 1, 2007

A statement on James Hunt's blog is posted saying:

"Most [articles] have been removed because of pending licensing agreements, but several other websites have posted them that I have no control over; they are still out there."

Nov. 15, 2007

In a phone call to Akvo Energy America, I was told that they were not going to give out any more information at this time than what has already been divulged in the Mail-Register. The person I spoke with declined to answer questions such as: have you actually ran things on this?; for how long?; what are 15 people working full-time doing there? He said that when their website goes live, then they will be open to such inquiries. -- Sterling D. Allan

How it Works

The process involves hydrogen extraction from water via plasmatic induction, a form of electrolysis. A small amount of electricity is combined with ordinary drinking water to release the hydrogen. Water from a reservoir tank is hit with electricity. A bright flash of light occurs each time the electricity strikes. Within seconds, the hydrogen released causes the water in the reaction tube to bubble a few small bubbles at first, then a steady bubbling throughout the tube.

The hydrogen gas will be ported into engines, providing fuel. The system also uses reserve batteries and solar cells. Non-radioactive carbon rods are part of the system that Hunt said will power a vehicle for 1 years on one fill up. Emissions from the vehicles are water vapor.

"There’s an additional process that doesn’t allow the carbon dioxide to be released," said Hunt.

Advantages

"On-demand hydrogen systems can be retrofitted to any vehicle; therefore, the expensive cost of purchasing a fuel cell vehicle or those changes needed to incorporate to other alternative fuels and the building of new distributing entities into the infrastructure will be unnecessary." [1]

Independent Testing

Hunt says that two major universities are testing his process, although he said he can not reveal the names of the schools."

Once the vehicles are converted, they can’t yet be driven on streets and highways. First, the process must be certified by the Environmental Protection Agency.

"Akvo" is Esperanto for "water".

“We went from concept to company in nine months.��?

“We got sponsored by an individual angel investor, who gave us enough money to do all this,��? Hunt said. “Then we started to get contract work. ... We’ve already talked to GM. They’re ready to license us right now. We’re just doing additional research.��?

Two shifts of employees - six on day, six on nights - work around the clock at the Monmouth facility. Akvo has a total of 15 employees.

After separating operations from Carl Sandburg College, the company donated $25,000 to endow a scholarship for future members of the Inventors Club.

Inventor: James Hunt

In 2007, James Hunt, 37, was a student at Carl Sandburg College and founder and president of the school’s Inventors Club.

Presently he serves as the owner and president of Akvo Energy America.
