UCL hydrogen spinout
closes £35m investment round!


Professor Dan Brett (UCL Chemical Engineering), co-founder of Bramble Energy and co-inventor of the core technology, said: "This Series B investment allows Bramble Energy to broaden the range of applications into which the technology can be used. It’s great to see university-based inventions translating to commercial reality and I’m proud of the vital role the UCL Department of Chemical Engineering has played in this.''

JCB invests in hydrogen
and expects to have tractors powered only by hydrogen in 2022.


JCB is investing £100 million on hydrogen engines. The company already unveiled a prototype hydrogen powered JCB backhoa loader and a JCB loadall telescopic handler in London.


JCB Chairman Lord Bamford said: 'Our sort of machinery will need to be powered by something othe than fossil fuels. We make machines which are powered by diesel so we have to find a solution and we are doing something about it now.'


The investment demonstrastes the strong belief that hydrogen is the fuel of the future. However, the UK hydrogen refuelling infrastructure is still in its infancy and whilst pure hydrogen is the solution of the future, it is not ready become the fuel of today.


The price of pure hydrogen needs to come down and the refuelling infrastructure needs to be developed, for hydrogen to reliably power agricultural vehicles. So we need short-term solutions to vehicle emissions as the UK hydrogen infrastructure is being developed. Water Fuel Engineering is ready to provide it. Our retrofit technology allows users to continue using their vehicles but with an 80% reduction in emissions. The agricultural community can reduce their vehicle emissions today, instead of waiting years before starting to adapt to UK climate obligations.

Toyota to launch hydrogen-powered Prius and Corolla
in 2023 to show the power of hydrogen


Toyota will enveil their Prius gasoline-hybrid in December 2022 and and plan to launch a hydrogen-powered Corolla by 2023. The difference with the Mirai is that the Corolla will use hydrogen to power the engine.The Mirai generates electricity to power its motor from hydroge and oxygen reactive in its fuel cell, but the Corolla will burn pure hydrogen directly in its engine. 


These efforts are to promote hydrogen as a viable alternative to electric. The announcement demonstrates how hydrogen can be used to reduce emissions of any size.

F1 to adopt hydrogen
'Maybe hydrogen is the route that Formula 1 can have where we keep the noise, we keep the emotion but we move into a different solution' - Ross Brown, F1 Managing Director for Motorsports

Sustainability has become a central objective for Governments and organisations around the world, Formula 1 is no exception. Many drivers and Ross Brown himself, have expressed scepticism that electric cars can provide the same acceleration as fossil fuels, and worry that eletric cars would reduce the excitement the sport brings. Electric cars are silent which isn't as exciting as hearing drivers thunder past you.

Replacing carbon fuels is a significant challenge for F1 and electric is not a viable option.

Hydrogen, on the other hand, has a higher energy density than diesel and has the potential to bring F1 to the net-zero target without sacrificing any of the excitement the sport brings.

Oxy-hydrogen for Health

Water Fuel Engineering has finalised the prototype for health and well-being!


Oxy-Hydrogen is also called Brown’s Gas (HHO) and consists of two parts of hydrogen and one part of oxygen. This is the same proportion as water. The difference is that Oxy-hydrogen is not simply oxygen plus hydrogen as they are not separated after electrolysis but are the amalgamated mixture of gases.


Oxy-hydrogen is a powerful anti-oxidant, acting as a barrier against free radicals and used for anti-inflammation. HHO is a very small neutrally charged molecule that can penetrate cell membranes, giving the unique ability to access mitochondria within the cells where it can benefit our health. Free radicals are uncharged and unstable molecules that are highly reactive, making them highly likely to pull apart other molecules when they try to become stable. Anti-oxidants stabilises free radicals and reduces the amount of damage they could cause.


HydroVitality is an autonomous electrolyser generating oxy-hydrogen gas that can be used anywhere to provide oxy-hydrogen inhalation therapies.This straightforward method delivers oxy-hydrogen through a nasal cannula or facemask, enabling the gas to act more rapidly which makes it a suitable treatment against acute oxidative stress.  Studies have demonstrated that inhaling oxy-hydrogen has benefitil impacts on our cells. This kind of therapy is popular in East Asia, particularly Japan, China and South Korea, and is already leading the beauty and wellness trends.

Oxy-hydrogen therapies are beneficial to our well-being, with testimonies showing how individuals can breathe easier, have reduced scarring and wrinkles, have reduced stress on their muscles during and after exercise, improved hydration and many many more...


Water Fuel Engineering will showcase HydroVitality at the Med-Tech Innovation Expo 2020, and invites you to visit our stand on 1st and 2nd of April 2020.

United Kingdom, Energy & Power Awards 2019
Water Fuel Engineering recognised as 'Leading Developer of Oxy-Hydrogen Applications'!


''With the need to reduce carbon emissions and discussions of climate change swirling, the dedicated businesses and professionals, operating in the fields of power generation, transport and distribution are facing new challenges at an exponential rate. Therefore, it seems imperative to the organisers of the Energy & Power Awards 2019 that these companies and individuals are not just recognised but rewarded for their hard work in providing cutting edge solutions within the energy sector.


Supplying energy to the homes across the UK takes perseverance, tenacity and innovation which is why SME News wants to highlight and celebrate the efforts and endeavours of those companies, large and small, with our Energy & Power Awards 2019.


Award Coordinator discusses the success of this year’s programme: “Powering business and homes across the country, our winners are some of the best of the best from across the energy and power market. I am proud of all of my winners and I hope to hear more of your successes in the coming years.”


SME News prides itself on the validity of its awards and winners. The awards are given solely on merit and are awarded to commend those most deserving for their ingenuity and hard work, distinguishing them from their competitors and proving them worthy of recognition.''

NFUS North East Renewable and Energy Saving Meeting
at Oldmeldrum


The National Farmers Union of Scotland organised a fantastic event for members at Oldmeldrum. First Class speakers and excellent chairing by NFUS Renewables Co-ordinator, David Smith from Cloffrickford Farm. 


Highly interesting topics covered by all speakers. Nigel Holmes : CEO, Hydrogen Fuel Cell Association: “Hydrogen Production & Opportunities within our Farming Industry” & Andrew McGowan: Manager, Absolute Solar & Wind Limited: “Storage Opportunities for all Renewable Technologies” & Gerry Stephens, Financial Manager, Mackies of Rothienorman: “How Mackies’ efficiently utilises its’ power on farm” 


 Alexander Nenov: DMD, Water Fuel Engineering: “Opportunities to power your own vehicle using Hydrogen” and Jim Bisset: MD, Hydro Genie: “Heating your water for less” 


James Buchan: Specialist Manager, CARES: “Financial guidance and advice in funding projects and new technology”. Special "thank you" to Skelmonae Wind Farm for so generously sponsoring this evening's event, and to Andrew Connon, North East Regional Vice Chair for such a well constructed and delivered Vote of Thanks.'


The highly informative event showed methods of efficiently using existing resources to reduce the effect of farming on the natural environment. The passion towards ultra-low emissions technology in Scotland continues to grow, and the focus of protecting the natural environment is shared throughout the close-knit agricultural community, particularly in the North East.
