The Hy-Impact product line of fuel saving and harmful emissions reducing hydrogen systems uses hydrogen as a catalyst in order to more effectively burn fuel. Hydrogen is separated from water via the process of electrolysis allowing a precise amount of hydrogen gas to be introduced into the engine's combustion chamber, creating a significantly more efficient fuel burn. Hy-Impact's patent-pending CPU technology ensures the correct amount of hydrogen is introduced, while no moisture enters the engine, resulting in a dramatic increase in fuel economy while substantially lowering harmful emissions.
The Hy-Impact™ line of products began development in 2005. After 7 years of research, testing and modification, it has emerged as a unique and successful solution to the concerns posed by rising fuel prices and the environmental concerns related to harmful emissions. Alternative Hydrogen Solutions was formed in 2012, when Arkansas-based Highline Technical Innovations Inc. (OTC: HLNT), creator of the Hy-Impact line of intelligent hydrogen systems, joined forces with Alternative Hydrogen Systems Group Sales and Marketing LLC, in order to bring this revolutionary product to market. The products that comprise the Hy-Impact™ line and their corresponding industries include: Hy-Road™ for trucking, Hy-Marine™ for maritime, Hy-Flo™ for oil, Hy-Agra™ for agriculture, Hy-Rail™ for locomotive, and Hy-Drolean™ for municipality.
