how it works

Hydrogen is the simplest and lightest element in the periodic table and is able to migrate into the gaps of other molecules, in this case, fuel. Because of this, combustion is enhanced as it's spread more promptly and completely than would otherwise be possible.


When fuel and air go into the combustion chamger or cylinder of an engine, the immediate assumption is that the fuel is burnt quickly, and it is, but actually the burn doesn't necessary reach the cylinder walls leaving unburnt fuel expelled from the cylinder, as emissions.


By adding a small amount of the hydrogen produced by the patented technology in CGON's units, combustion is enhanced when the hydrogen atoms migrate between the fuel molecules. This means that nearly all of the fuel is burnt and fewer emissions or particulates are expelled into the air. This means that nearly all of the fuel is burnt and fewer emissions or particulates are the expelled into the air. This is because the hydrogen produced isn't ordinary hydrogen, it's ortho-hydrogen and this is created by getting the balance of electrolyte, the metals used in the cell and the current used to create the reaction just right.

The box creates a small amount of very pure, very powerful hydrogen from our electrolyte solution.

Hydrogen is sucked into the engine through the air intake, along with your regular fuel / air mixture.

The resulting Hydrogen-Fuel-Air mixture burns faster and more completely than your ordinary fuel / air mixture,

Since the Volkswagen Emissions Scandal, there has been much controversy over how emissions are measured and the accuracy of the manufacturer's ecomony figures. From September 2017, engine manufacturers will have to carry out Real World Tests which will stop manufacturers massaging figures obtained in lab conditions.

Lab tests or New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) Tests invlces testing emissions and fuel economy in a lab, with none of the real conditions that would be experienced when driving such as load, weather, road surface, driving style etc. Manufacturers have so far been able to self-certify and publish figures which optimise ecomony figures and quote emissions far below those that would be achieved in the real world.

Real World Tests (RWT) are carried out using a Portable Emissions Monitoring System (PEMS) machine on cars driven on the road as they would be in everyday driving conditions. You can see tests that have been carried out by Emissions Analytics on their EQUA Index which show the difference between what the manufacturers quote and what a RWT has shown. It was use of this tyre of machine that exposed the Volkswagen scandal.

The CGON units have been independently tested and verified by Emissions Analytics in real world conditions, and the results speak for themselves.

A typical example would be an emissions reduction of 67% when the system is first commission, rising to 80% when retested a month later; the system  has a cleaning effect on the engine.

emissions explained

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) This is a non-toxic gas, which has a negative contribution towards the environment. This is a global problem and governments around the world are continuously pursuing policies to reduce CO2 emissions.

Carbon Monoxide (CO) Produced from an incomplete combustion process of fuel. This gas is hazardous to health; it reduces the ability of blood to carry oxygen, cause of headaches, respiratory problems and at high concentration; death.

Hydrocarbons (HC) HCs are emitted from the exhaust as unburnt fuel and as evaporation from the fuel tank and from the nozzle at point of filling up. HCs reacts with Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) in sunlight which produces photochemical oxidants and low level Ozone, causing breathing problems and increased symptoms in those with asthma.

Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) NOx emissions are produced in the combustion process. HCs reacts with NOx in sunlight which produces low level OZone; this can cause inflammation of the airways reduced lung function which can trigger asthma and can contribute to the formation of Particulate Matter (PM).


Particulate Matter (PM) This is partially burnt fuel which is mainly associated with Diesel Engines. The molecules are formed by the reaction to the other pollutant gases. PMs are small particles that make their way in to deep tissue causing respiratory and cardiovascular complaints.


Particulate Number (PN) Just like PMs, Particulate Number is a partially burnt fuel associated with Diesel Engines. PNs are molecules that are so small they can only be seen under a powerful microscope. The molecules make their way into the body through the skin causing; irregular heartbeats, nonfatal heart attacks, decreased lung function and increased respiratory symptoms and even premature death in some cases. The ezero1 has been proven to reduce these harmful emissions. Vehicles of all ages have been tested both on and off road; the results are outstanding!

CGON's hydrogen on demand systems generate powerful ortho hydrogen using just two amps of current perfect for automotive applications, in sufficient quantities and with no harmful bi-products.

“I fitted the ezero1 unit to my Nissan Navara & it gave me a smoother tick over straight away. Emissions were down instantly by 60% plus. On average my MPG before was 22MPG which increased to 30.4MPG.”
