The right technology at the right time: KEYOU has redesigned the traditional internal combustion engine enabling it to run on hydrogen as sustainable and clean fuel, bringing about a quantum leap in propulsion development. The company has succeeded in developing an emission-free, yet cost-effective hydrogen drive for commercial vehicles – without compromising performance, capacity or range.
For the first time ever, emission-free vehicles are becoming affordable.
KEYOU is developing hydrogen technologies that will enable the world to swiftly evolve from the oil age to the hydrogen age. Batteries support this vital change – however, being based on finite resources (e.g. lithium) they can never be a substitute for new hydrogen technologies.
The only way to achieve a sustainable and clean energy and mobility cycle on Earth is to harness the energy of water and the sun. Just as the water cycle has been essential to maintaining life on this planet for billions of years, a hydrogen cycle based on renewable energy will be able to produce clean energy and facilitate mobility in a sustainable way – and it will be able to do so forever.
The estimated amount of H2 available in Germany alone from the surplus electricity generated by wind, solar and biogas plants, and also as an industrial by-product.
Roughly 2 billion kg of hydrogen is enough to fuel the annual requirements of 400,000 buses and trucks.
400,000 vehicles fitted with the latest KEYOU-inside H2 technology would reduce CO2 emissions into the environment by 25 million tons.
Vehicle emissions are enormously detrimental to both the environment and people’s health. At the moment and for the foreseeable future, electric and fuel cell vehicles are not competitive without government subsidies; they cost a many times more than what diesel vehicles cost; and life-cycle analyses show them to have considerable drawbacks with regard to not only production, but also recycling. However, mankind and the environment are in need of a technology that is both green and economically viable across the whole value chain. What drives KEYOU is the challenge of creating a sustainable and clean solution that can be mass produced in response to this problem.
