Cummins Inc. and Ad Astra Rocket Company teamed together to successfully build a Cummins Power Generator that uses mixtures of hydrogen and gas. Corporate social responsibility is important at Cummins and this new scientific achievement is designed to be environmentally friendly.
As stated in the press release, the team’s success goes hand-in-hand with a parallel and ongoing technology development to store hydrogen affordably — previous methods have been costly. The teams also designed a reliable process to mix and control hydrogen and biogas, and use together as an efficient energy source. These achievements could have long-term positive impacts especially in the developing world where energy resources are scarcer and less affordable.
“This is a tremendous achievement in terms of the science and engineering as well as the environmental benefits associated with the use of hydrogen and biogas,” said Franklin Chang Díaz, CEO, Ad Astra. “The teams from Ad Astra, Cummins and EARTH University came together and used their combined talents and creativity to achieve this key milestone. I am looking forward to the next phase of this program.”
“We are pleased to be part of this incredible achievement,” said Tony Satterthwaite, President, Cummins Power Generation and Vice President, Cummins Inc. “This is innovation at its finest and innovation is one of our Company’s core values. Further, at Cummins, part of our mission demands that everything we do creates a cleaner, healthier and safer environment and exploring, and investing in new and diverse fuel alternatives helps us meet that important mission.”
The partnership between Ad Astra and Cummins began in July of 2011.
