Topic of the practice

Encouraging Low Emission Transports

Good Practice Information

It is a good practice of how to encourage low emission transports. The proposed good practice includes the implementation of Brown gas technology (oxyhydrogen) into engines with internal combustion which can be applied in cars, trucks, and buses running on petrol, diesel and LPG. This practice is already implemented in hundreds of vehicles in Bulgaria.
The major advantages in this technology are:
Fuel economy up to 40 %;
Increase in performance: Regarding vehicles with diesel engines, the torque can increase up to 25%;
Decrease of CO2 emissions by 80%;
Decrease of engine wear;
Decrease in amount of carbon deposits and soot formation inside the engine.

Evidence of success

Proof tests for harmful emissions have been performed
in laboratories in Bulgaria, Germany, and Norway. They show a reduction of harmful emissions between 70-80% depending on the type and age of the vehicle.
The number of auto mobiles which are using that technology have increased.
