Here´s Greg Vezina of Hydrofuel Inc. with his Ammonia Car… still waiting after 30 years!
Despite being CO2-free (even carbon negative according to Greg) and cheaper than petrol and finally gaining mass publicity the conversion kits still haven’t been mass produced. Car and oil corporations are still completely ignoring Ammonia fuel (Green Gas NH3).
Adapting transport to NH3, which is readily available would save hundreds of thousands of unnecessary deaths a year through lung and cardiovascular diseases. The deliberate suppression of the simple (but not yet DIY) technology is a crime against humanity.

Funciona como gasolina pero más barato y emite ZERO CO2. Hecho de solo aire, agua y electricidad
Hace 100 años que se sabe producirlo, con el método de hacer fertilizante.
Hoy se hace con Gas Natural, pero se puede producir muy bien con electricidad de fuentes renovables y aún más barato con una nueva sistema (SSAS).
El ‘Gas Verde ha sido usado durante 100 años ya. Está ignorado hoy solo para proteger el petroleo y las corporaciones capitalistas que controlan el mercado.
De hecho se puede producir el Gas Verde NH3 muy bien de forma decentralizado, o con el molino de viento del barrio
Se cambia en liquido a poco presión, no explota y es poco peligroso. Huele fatal, eso si, pero se mantiene tapado. Es ideal para guardar energía de sistemas solares para usar cuando no hay.
No hay dinero para comercializar el GAS VERDE, mientras se da todavía subsidios bilionarios a la industria petrolera
Que crimen que tenemos que destruir el planeta cuando siempre ha existido la opción de carburante sin CO2!
falta traducir más…ayuda!
- costs less and zero emissions
- helps reverse global warming
- no need to transport fuel (used where it is made)
- less truck pollution, traffic congestion and fuel tanker accidents.
- less need for oil wars ( oil is now not worth the fight )
- less chance of “oil” terrorism ( harder to attack a million wide spread green fuel machines than one or two oil refineries.) ETC
There are three ways to use ammonia as a fuel.
- Ammonia can be burned in a spark ignited piston engine, behaving quite a bit like an ordinary gasoline engine, except it will perform at compressions of as high as 25 to 1, which is even better than diesel’s 17 to 1 limit.
- Ammonia will burn in a turbine, which would be used for long term electricity generation, say in a “peaker” style generation facility intended to replace a natural gas generator. This would be a machine in the multimegawatt range.
- The third method of producing electricity from ammonia is to use it in a fuel cell. This has always been possible but development has favored hydrogen fuel cells rather than direct ammonia fuel cells thus far.
Converting a Vehicle to run on Ammonia (NH3)
How does an ammonia dual fueled vehicle work?
The simplest implementation of the dual fueled ammonia vehicle conversion is physically similar to a compressed natural gas vehicle conversion. A new on-board tank holds liquid ammonia at only about 150 PSI. Regulators, valves and an electronic control system meter the flow of ammonia to the engine as needed after the engine is started and warmed up on gasoline, ethanol etc. A small amount of gasoline is used to idle the engine, then as the load is increased the additional energy is provided by adding ammonia. This is all handled automatically by the engine control electronic module.
Can I buy a conversion kit for my private car today?
No. Not at this time. Conversion work is currently concentrated with fleet vehicles and other large market applications. Although, with increasing gasoline prices, conversions for private vehicles are coming.
COME ON YOU GEEKS WHERES THE DIY KIT !!

Here in Spain local right wing council’s are competing to declare support for Agenda 21, Sustainability, Environmental awareness, etc. All good citizens are urged to take part, and the response is good. Because everyone knows by now that we’re destroying the life supporting mechanisms of the planet.
Okay it’s super necessary that we all take part, but without touching the rampant consumption that is the base of capitalism, we are all pissing against a gale force wind.
Suddenly AGENDA 21 is all the fashion, nobody mentions that it was first agreed in 1992 at the Rio Summit, and has taken almost 20 years to get off the drawing board. Meanwhile every field of environment, climate and biodiversity crises have been taking giant steps backwards.
It seems like Agenda 21 may be used by corrupt business and politicos as one more LOAD OF GREENWASH and even an excuse to CUT SERVICES in the name of sustainability. No reason not to support the idea, I support it, while exposing the hypocritical cant of those profiting from destroying our planet.
” The world’s leading ozone destroyer takes credit for leadership in ozone protection. A mammoth greenhouse gas emitter professes the precautionary approach to global warming. A major agrichemical manufacturer trades in a pesticide so hazardous it has been banned in many countries, while implying it is helping feed the hungry. A petrochemical firm uses the waste from one polluting process as raw material for another hazardous process, and boasts of an important recycling initiative. Another giant multinational cuts timber from virgin rainforest, replaces it with monoculture plantations and calls the project “sustainable forest development.”
”Welcome to the world of GREENWASH, where transnational corporations (TNCs) are preserving and expanding their markets by posing as friends of the environment and enemies of poverty. Greenwash takes many forms: from the pious concern for the environment expressed in expensive advertising campaigns, to the “continuous improvement” ballyhooed in voluntary codes of conduct; from the creation of benign-sounding corporate front groups, to the participation of TNCs in environmental conferences and events. All these efforts share the goal of avoiding national and international sanctions on dirty TNC operations, which are at the root of many global environmental crises.”
Radioactive Japanese reactors
Japan’s damaged nuclear plant in Fukushima has been emitting radioactive iodine and caesium at levels approaching those seen in the aftermath of the Chernobyl accident in 1986. Austrian researchers have used a worldwide network of radiation detectors – designed to spot clandestine nuclear bomb tests – to show that iodine-131 is being released at daily levels 73 per cent of those seen after the 1986 disaster. The daily amount of caesium-137 released from Fukushima Daiichi is around 60 per cent of the amount released from Chernobyl………..
….Iodine is rapidly absorbed by the thyroid, and leaves only as it decays radioactively, with a half-life of eight days. Caesium is absorbed by muscles, where its half-life of 30 years means that it remains until it is excreted by the body. It takes between 10 and 100 days to excrete half of what has been consumed.
While in the body the isotopes’ radioactive emissions can do significant damage, mainly to DNA. Children who ingest iodine-131 can develop thyroid cancer 10 or more years later; adults seem relatively resistant. A study published in the US last week found that iodine-131 from Chernobyl is still causing new cases of thyroid cancer to appear at an undiminished rate in the most heavily affected regions of Ukraine, Belarus and Russia.
Caesium-137 lingers in the environment because of its long half-life. Researchers are divided over how much damage environmental exposure to low doses has done since Chernobyl. Some researchers think it could still cause thousands of new cases of cancer across Europe.

It’d be very difficult to exaggerate the scale of damage caused by the Japanese trifecta disaster of earthquake-tsunami-nuclear power plant crisis, but in the middle of it all there’s one small bright spot: Japan’s wind turbines have survived it all unscathed, with operators being asked to step up operations where possible to help with electricity shortfalls.
