Name of. Dewce G2 Hydrogen On—Demand System

Background
       NRG Logfs’ucs LLC of 700 Commerce Drive, Suite 500 Oakbrook Iilinois60523 —
has applied for exemption from the prohibitions in Sectlon 27156 of the California
Vehicle Code for its G2 Hydrogen On—Demand System device. The device is designed
for all 1998—2009 model year (MY) Ilght/medlum/heavy heavy—duty on—road dlesel
engines between 5.0 liters to 15.0 liters.

Recommendation:                             '                                '
       Grant exemption to NRG Loglstlcs LLC as requested and issue Executive Order
D—717.                               .

Device Description:
        The G2 Hydrogen On—Demand Systemdevice produces hydrogen through an
 electrolysis process by supplying water from a reservoir containing distilled water and
 an activator (potassium hydroxide) to electrolysis dry cells containing stainless steel
‘plates that are supplied electricity from the vehicle‘s battery. The device consists of a
 10—quart water reservoir, a dual cell electronSIS generator (which contain the posxtlve
 negative, and neutral metal plates), various electrical components, electrical wiring and
 connectors, and a rubber supply hose for the hydrogen gas. The device is connected.to
 the vehicle‘s oil pressure CII’CUI’[ so that hydrogen gas is only produced when the engine
is operating. .

Discussion/Basisfor the Recommendation:
       This exemption is based on the followmg emission tests conducted on two
heavy—duty diesel engines with NRG Loglstlcs LLC‘s G2 Hydrogen On—Demand System
device installed:
       1.   __FTP transient cycle test on a 1999 MY Mack E7 Senes 11. 9 liter diesel
            engine.
      2.      FTP transient cycle Euro III ESC 13—mode steady—state, and NTE tests on a
            2007 MY Caterpillar C15 Series 11.9 liter diesel engine.

device did not cause emissions to exceed baseline by more than the allowed limits of 10
percent for HC, NMHC, and NOx and 15 percent on CO and PM which is acceptable for
exemption. Euro III ESC and NTE emission testing on the 2007 MY Caterpillar C15
Series engine modified with the G2 Hydrogen On—Demand System device showed that
the modified engine met the exhaust emission standards. Similar results areexpected
when NRG Logistics, LLC‘s G2 Hydrogen On—Demand System device is used on the
1998—2009 MY light/medium/heavy heavy—duty on—road diesel engmes between 5.0
liters to 15.0 liters as stated in this application.
