MIT (Institute of technology of Massachusett) has just launched a prototype of bus whose engine functions with a plasmatron. This new apparatus uses plasma as reformer to produce hydrogen, in order to improve combustion and thus the output of the engine. The particles highly energy of plasma can break the carbon chains of the fuels to form hydrogen. Moreover, associated a catalyst, it would reduce the nitrogen oxide emissions (Nox) of 90%.
Far from neglecting work of the scientists of MIT at the origin of Plasmatron (anteriority of the patent of MIT - 1995), it is interesting to note that such reformeurs are realizable, which officializes the principles with work in a PMC Pantone (of which the patent is posterior - 1998)
But everyone cannot buy Plasmatron or manufacture it.
What is formidable with the PMC Pantone (and which we owe in Pantone which placed at the disposal of all, in the public domain, thanks to Internet), the procedure to do oneself its basic engine), it is that it could be reproduced hundreds of times, and that even at the experimental stage, with now 5 years of retreat, it shows that it is perfectly operational and has undeniable measurable results.
First advantage of the PMC Pantone: its reproducibility
The second advantage and not least: not only the results obtained are comparable with those of Plasmatron, but the PMC (Processing Multi-Carbons) Pantone is more economic than him since a good part of the reaction is due to the heat of exhaust fumes, i.e. with calories which differently would have been wasted.
