"Vincent Christ" is a helluva name. So the piece does not really offer much detail on the process, so we cannot ask critical questions. What is the "proprietary material?" How much power does the process require? It seems like the O2 byproduct announcement could be substantially just marketing and a trick for environmental law in Canada or elsewhere. If the process is "green" and is done with "Mystery Material" in Canada, that might please Canadian officials greatly. But if the "Mystery Material" is quite dirty and gets produced in Vietnam or somewhere and shipped via diesel supertanker to Canada, then the environmental value overall may not be so great, no?

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
