I am marketing a new product that is patented, and we are approved by the US EPA, CANADIAN EPA, and we are also authorized by the US COAST GUARD  for marine installations. 

We have been getting incredibly great results with our Hydrogen Generators. We have them installed on sevral trucking companies in CA, and AZ, also on a 212 foot superyacht, and it is installed on the 'Time Bandit' of the 'Deadliest Catch' fleet, who experienced a 23% fuel reduction, and 85% harmful exhaust emissions reduction. We are under contract to install on the 2 new WA State ferries being built in Seattle. We have over 1,400 units sold worldwide. 

Our system does work. The US DOE believes Hydrogen is the most viable Alternative Fuel available, and the EPA, and CARB believe it is the cleanest Alternative Fuel.
