D-HAT 6000™

is a transformative engine efficiency enhancement system for Diesel-Powered Industries.  Our D-HAT 6000 state-of-the-art on-board diesel hydrogen-infusion systems promise fuel usage decreases of 10 to 30% and reductions in emissions at a rate of: CO2 20%+,  NOx (nitrous oxide) 30%+ and particulate matter as much as 70%. Confirmed in a 2023 in field 100-day normal operations study.

Along with prolonged engine life, the D-HAT 6000™ system significantly reduces the frequency of engine maintenance, such as diesel particulate filter (if required) maintenance and replacement. D-HAT™ 6000 systems are warrantied for two years or 9000 operating hours.

HoD Tec D-HAT 6000™ units deliver an off-the-shelf, fleet-wide solution for dramatic reductions in fuel consumption and engine emissions, with the lowest cost of transition of any alternative optimization ROI.

Truly, D-HAT 6000™ systems afford a no-risk, significant increase in operational efficiency. With D-HAT, fuel and maintenance savings per diesel engine are often in excess of 20% per year, based on average operating hours.  The ROI is typically only 12 to 18 months, while lease to buy options usually deliver immediate positive impact to the customer’s bottom line.

Great for the planet, even better for your profitability.


2023 Locomotive Client Trial -Delivers Proven Results

Hydrogen On Demand Technologies (HOD) was engaged to design a solution for large locomotive diesel engines. The first field tested  engine was the 2 stroke EMD 645/GP38.

After 3 months of continuous operation, the installed D-HAT™ 6000 delivered an average of 24% fuel consumption reduction. The pilot also delivered massive reduction in green house gas and particulate matter emissions.

Reductions in harmful exhaust emissions including CO2-25+% NOx 35+%, diesel particulate matter (soot) reductions estimated at 70+%. DHAT assisted engines run greener, cleaner while delivering maximum efficiency. Carbon footprints are reduced.

Why Hydrogen On Demand?

Hydrogen on Demand Technologies is the worldwide original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of Diesel Hydrogen Assist Technology (D-HAT™) generators, a certified and warrantied aftermarket device designed to work on all large diesel internal combustion engines (6 liters and larger in size) including trucks, buses, heavy equipment, marine vessels, power generation and more.

D-HAT provides a hydrogen-assisted fuel burn that enhances the combustion characteristics of diesel equipment by increasing overall efficiency to 95% or higher. The results are transformational: by an increasing torque, less fuel is spent for a given amount of work, providing better mileage, higher-performing engines, as well as far fewer pollutants.

The Hydrogen On Demand Process

Each D-HAT unit produces up to 4 standard liters of 99.9% pure hydrogen per-minute using one of the most compact and highly efficient electrolysis processes available.

Hydrogen on Demand Technologies

01 Just add water

D-HAT’s water-to-hydrogen conversion process starts with distilled water (the only thing you ever have to add). The distilled water is used as feedstock and pumped to our Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell.

02 Patented Proton Exchange Membrane fuel cell

Our proprietary PEM cell technology reliably and continuously converts the distilled water into hydrogen through an electrolysis process.

03 Scalable hydrogen production

Our highly efficient electrolysis process produces more hydrogen using a smaller surface area that most other processes. It draws a fractional amount of power from the diesel engine's alternator/electrical system to produce up to 4 standard liters of hydrogen per minute, delivering only that hydrogen to the running engine.

04 Up to 99.9% pure hydrogen injection

The hydrogen gas is plumbed into the air-intake manifold using industry-standard tubing and tube fittings. No engine modifications are required.

05 On-time hydrogen added in optimum amount

The hydrogen-enriched air mixture is introduced into the diesel engine cylinder along with the injected diesel fuel. Since hydrogen burns 10x faster than the diesel fuel, the hydrogen-assisted combustion event is complete. Greater than 95% of the fuel is burned very efficiently, producing additional power and torque in each power stroke. 

06 More energetic fuel burn = more torque

The small concentration of hydrogen enriches the air/fuel mixture and assists the combustion of injected diesel fuel to burn more completely. The greater combustion efficiency means the piston is pushed down harder, yielding increased torque, improved fuel economy and reduced emissions.

07 More carbon burned inside engine = reduced harmful emissions

Almost all the fuel burns completely inside the engine before the exhaust valve is opened near the bottom of the stroke. Torque and fuel economy increase while emissions and vehicle maintenance decrease.

Put The Power Of Hydrogen On Demand To Work For You

The addition of D-HAT generators to your diesel-powered equipment can deliver a triple bottom line impact by improving your sustainability position, increasing net operating profitability, while reducing net operating expenses.

Improve Engine Performance

Hydrogen on Demand Technologies

Go Further With Fuel and Maintenance Savings

What it does:

D-HAT’s hydrogen-assisted burn helps diesel fuel combust completely and burn more energetically. D-HAT increases efficiencies and helps fleet operations perform more efficiently than ever before.

How it helps:

D-HAT improves the performance, utilization, and longevity of your diesel-powered equipment by:

  • Increasing torque so you can carry payloads more profitably with less fuel consumption. Higher torque gives you more power on the highway so you don’t have to downshift as often. It also helps the engine run and idle more smoothly and quietly.
  • Boosting the productivity of your aging fleet. Fewer particulates going through your system mean fewer wasted days spent every week on the regeneration cycle when required.
  • Extending the life of your diesel engines by reducing carbon build-up so they run cleaner longer. It also cleans as your engine runs, purging existing carbon deposits and preventing new carbon deposits. Running cleaner increases engine durability and useful longevity, minimizing the risk of engine failure.


Increase operating profitability

Hydrogen on Demand Technologies

Go Further With Fuel And Maintenance Savings

What it does:

As D-HAT produces a more complete fuel burn, your diesel engines run more efficiently. By eliminating carbon build-up, it will increase fuel savings and decrease maintenance costs.

How it helps:

D-HAT improves the performance of diesel equipment, thereby reducing net operating expenses and increasing net operating profits by: 

  • Improving fuel economy by a minimum of 10%. It will reduce fuel consumption, increase the distance traveled per gallon/liter of diesel fuel, and improve the bottom line costs of fuel.
  • Reducing engine and emission system maintenance costs. Maintenance cost improvements are achieved by extending the time between required service intervals. Since there is virtually no carbon build-up, there is less engine wear and tear, leading to extended maintenance cycles and longer engine life.
  • Decreasing the frequency of oil and filter changes. D-HAT not only extends the interval between oil changes, but it also extends the periods between Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve replacements and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) regenerations or rebuilds.


Reduce Environmental Footprint

Hydrogen on Demand Technologies

Go Further In Your Sustainability Initiatives

What it does:

D-HAT reduces the harmful effects of pollution from diesel engines to below existing EPA and CARB standards. Fast-burning hydrogen causes the diesel fuel to burn more completely. Less partially burned fuel means far fewer pollutants.

How it helps:

D-HAT is proven to reduce harmful diesel exhaust emissions. A 2019 benchmark test by the U.S. Department of Energy verifies D-HAT's effectiveness, including:

  • 77% reduction in nitrous oxide emissions (NOx). The higher thermal efficiency of the combustion cycle leads to lower exhaust temperatures, reducing NOx gases that cause smog.
  • 64% reduction in diesel particulate matter (black soot). Reducing unburned hydrocarbons purges the air of respiratory pollutants that create chronic illnesses and premature deaths.
  • 15% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions, a greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. Increased fuel economy serves to decarbonize your fleet operations and reduce your CO2 footprint in line with your sustainability efforts.
