Malta

malta

Malta ranks 25th in the 2015 Eco-innovation Scoreboard with a composite index of 64 relative to the EU-average index of 100. The country slightly exceeds the EU-28 average in terms of resource efficiency outcomes (with an index of 104), but lags behind in eco-innovation inputs, activities and outputs and socio-economic outcomes.

The development of eco-innovation is hindered by a mix of natural constraints and structural challenges, including the country’s small size and insularity, limited potential to develop renewable energy sources, a weak human resources base in science and technologies, limited capacity and readiness for research and innovation on behalf of local firms, and relatively low levels of investment in R&D.

Nevertheless, several recent policy initiatives – most notably, a new National Research and Innovation Strategy to 2020 – reflect the Government’s commitment to improve Malta’s innovation environment and R&D potential. Policy initiatives specifically related to eco-innovation and the circular economy include a Green Economy Strategy and Action Plan, a National Electromobility Action Plan, and a new Waste Management Plan. Areas that have benefitted from eco-innovation solutions in the past two years include water management (in particular, efforts to address water scarcity) and energy efficiency

Econ is a product by Smart Green Systems Ltd. This innovative product produces oxyhydrogen (HHO) from water. Using a very small portion of electricity called electrolysis, Econ separates oxygen and hydrogen, instantly creating hydrogen gas. This gas is then used as a replacement to fossil fuels.

Econ generates hydrogen on demand, which in turn makes the system safe to use, considering that there is no storage of hydrogen. This revolutionary step makes Econ 100 per cent safe in homes and even in cars, where initial results have proven so promising that even Lloyds Insurance accepted to cover the Econ. Deliverables of the system show that hydrogen burns more efficiently than LPG while it is the most abundant gas in the universe and it is also cleaner. Car testing reports showed a reduction of up to 70 % in CO2 emissions when it comes to automotive vehicles.

Econ, a Maltese development, has been tested and certified by the HHO Institute in Ohio, U.S.A. In follow up to the successful results achieved abroad, Smart Green Systems Ltd is now aiming to introduce Econ locally and offer the Maltese consumer a cleaner, cheaper and safer way to cook and heat. Econ can also be used in a car, transforming one’s car into a hybrid working with conventional fuel and hydrogen.
