Go Hydrogen in Your RV
Mary Meadows says she can increase mileage and reduce emissions. She’s the founder of an Arizona company that makes a system that converts cars, pickups, trucks, recreational vehicles, and boats to hydrogen hybrids, reported The Arizona Republic.
Mary Meadows is an environmental medicine physician who had a clinic in Texas. In Corpus Christi, Texas, she tested toxicity levels in workers at industrial businesses and farms and treated them for related ailments.
When she retired, she looked for something to invest in that helped the Earth.
“I have been very concerned about pollution issues, and this hydrogen system takes vehicles to near-zero emissions.
The technology has been around, but it’s getting more attention now because fuel costs are high, and the federal government is encouraging alternative and sustainable energy.
She has been doing research and development of the hydrogen system for three years, but only in the past year and a half has she been happy with her current system.
“We’re always making changes and modifications,” she said. “We’re taking on more engineers who can design a new system even though we have a good one.”
The Canadian government, which has a great interest in hydrogen, is paying Meadows’ way to the conference “Hydrogen+Fuel Cells 2011″ this month in Vancouver; it is one of the leading international conventions of the hydrogen and fuel-cell industry.
“The future is hydrogen, and the future is now,” Meadows said.

The company, H2 Pure Power, LLC was formed in March, 2009 to market hydrogen on demand generator product that emerged after significant research and testing with hydrogen generators kits. The company was formed to bring the technology to a commercial level for a global market. Dr. Mary Meadows was an initial investor in H2 Pure Power, and subsequently acquired full ownership of the company. Dr Meadows managed the research and development of significant technology milestones:
Plate process using proprietary nano-coating creating a surface area that increases the chemical reaction to produce higher quantities of hydrogen than comparable HHO generator system designs
On Board Diagnostic (OBD) module using “Hero Chip” to control engine using On-Demand Hydrogen Generator System
Unique injection molded canisters designed for mass production, ease of installation and harsh operating environments
These innovations are the “secret sauce” of the H2 Pure Power On-Demand Hydrogen Generator Systems.
Modular On-Demand Hydrogen Generator Systems
Modular On-Demand Hydrogen Generator (MOD-HG) Systems are comprised of a generator and a bubbler reservoir. The system is flexible enough to enable one or more generators to be combined with one or more bubblers. The generator contains a series of nano-coated plates with alternating configuration of positive and negative plates. The generator is wired with the positive taken from the battery of the vehicle for the electricity needed to produce electrolysis.
The electrolysis is composed of distilled water and a minute amount of potassium hydroxide that conducts with the proprietary plates producing hydrogen. The hydrogen is in a foamy state as it comes out of the generators and goes into the Bubbler to define the hydrogen/oxygen into refined bubbles of gas which is fed out through fuel line tubing into the air intake system of the vehicle.
The system utilizes a very powerful flash-back arrestor for safety. It is engineered with sonic boom technology which senses a flash coming before it arrives and stops it without fail.
What we see depends mainly on what we look for.
