BROOKVILLE, Ohio — One local businessman and engineer hopes the technology his company displayed Saturday afternoon in Brookville can lead to an industrial revoultion in the Miami Valley.
Millennium Reign Energy showcased their hydrogen production appliance called the AutoARK and another piece of propriety equipment that compresses, stores and dispenses hydrogen into vehicles. The company hopes that the alternative fueling technologies will lead to thousands of jobs in the Miami Valley.
" Renewable hydrogen is a green and sustainable fuel source," MRE said in a relase. "Building the future hydrogen infrastructure could provide thousands of green jobs in the Dayton area while transitioning to an environmentally friendly fuel."
MRE demonstrated a Chevrolet Fuel Cell vehicle -- one of a fleet of over 100 fuel cell vehicles that GM has had on the road in a trial program called Project Driveway since 2007 with over 2 million miles logged. The two companies' said products will show that this combination of infrastructure and vehicle technologies is here and ready now.
The live demonstration, at the Dull Homestead, a green facility itself, was aimed at gaining noteriaty for the technology from consumers, potential investors and the government.
"We have proven that we can build infrastructure to fuel cars and make the hydrogen onsite," MRE CEO Chris McWhinney said. "You don't have to buy power, gas, diesel. You can make all your fuel at home. Clean, sustainable, renewable."

SALEM, Mass. — Dozens of people were sickened after a chemical leak late Sunday at a Peabody plant in Salem, Massachusetts.
It was the second call to Thermal Circuits that firefighters received Sunday, and it wasn’t immediately clear if the business would reopen Monday morning.
That will depend on whether investigators and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) officials give the OK that it’s safe to return.
The concern stems from what appears to be two chemical leaks Sunday.
Salem firefighters got a call around 3:30 p.m. Sunday for what they said was a chlorine leak.
The building was evacuated as firefighters and hazmat teams checked everything out.
The leak was said to be under control around 4 p.m., but it wasn’t until 8:30 p.m. that the cleanup finished.
When the next shift was allowed to go back inside, several employees said they started having trouble breathing, felt nauseous and had trouble with consciousness.
Officials said 29 people were treated at area hospitals.
