Portland State University students Blake Turner and Sean Krivonogoff have a plan to make driving emissions-free, and it doesn’t involve equipping the whole world with Teslas.
“Instead, their big idea is to convert existing cars from gas guzzlers to green machines that run on hydrogen — a switch that would cost a fraction of buying a new electric car.”
The hydrogen-fueled prototype by Turner Automotive (named after founder Blake Turner) converts the gasoline-fueled engine to burn clean hydrogen—the only fuel that can be used in a traditional car that is zero carbon.
“The automobile has been burning gasoline for 120 years. IT’S TIME FOR A NEW FUEL: HYDROGEN”
“We asked ourselves, ‘How can we take people who have been left behind by the sustainable movement and bring them in?’” Blake told us. “That’s how we came up with a conversion kit.”
