'Tri-brid' motor vehicle developed
World Energy Solutions creates a vehicle running on a hybrid hydrogen-oxygen engine.
St. Petersburg, FL – World Energy Solutions Inc. claims that it has successfully developed and tested a "tri-brid" motor vehicle at its research & development laboratory in St. Petersburg, FL. The term "tri-brid" applies the company's proprietary HHO (hybrid hydrogen-oxygen) system to a hybrid engine to produce even greater fuel efficiency and emission reduction.
Conversion to World Energy's HHO System, done in the lab with a Ford Hybrid Escape SUV, enables the prime fuel to be replaced with hydrogen and oxygen molecules. This increases the engine's gas mileage and reduces its emissions to little more than water.
World Energy has developed an electronic means of regulating the hydrogen and oxygen gasses in a way which permits the Escape's computer control system to remain intact while creating greater efficiency in the "Atkinson Cycle" internal combustion engine. Test results to date have been confirmed by placing the vehicle on an automobile chassis dynamometer. This will enable all test results to be independently verified.
The combination of gasoline with hydrogen and oxygen provides a more efficient and complete burn in the engine cylinders. This reduces emissions dramatically.
In separate testing, World Energy’s Honda test vehicle showed hydro-carbon emissions were reduced by over 99% and carbon monoxide emissions by 92%. Particulate emissions– soot – were almost all eliminated. These significantly reduced emissions are all well within federal regulations for emission reduction and the increase in mpg is compatible with proposed legislation.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
