In November 2011, the project of the establishment of an experimental laboratory for the research of hydrogen as fuel or fuel additive, environment-friendly fuel additives and fuel systems was officially launched in Lithuania. Total value of the project is 7.6 million Litas. 5.3 million Litas of them is the support received from the European Union structural funds. The project has been implemented by the UAB SG dujos Auto.
The purpose of the project is to research the possibilities of the use of hydrogen in fuel production in Lithuania as well as technologies for the production of environment-friendly fuel, to develop the newest advanced methods of the application of hydrogen as fuel or fuel additive together with natural gas.
The new research laboratory is developing a joint methodology how to use the new type of fuel – the mix of hydrogen and natural gas (hydro-methane) in the transport vehicles powered by natural gas. It has been planned to use the hydro-methane in various petrol and diesel fuel powered transport vehicles.
The new project is aimed to contribute to the development of innovative high technologies in Lithuania will give a possibility to establish work places to highly qualified specialists, will stimulate the export of high- tech services and products, will contribute to the cooperation of a private business sector and research institutions as well as the application of research results in practice, commercial activities.
