Team FAST Foundation Founded
Eight of the students from the Honors program founded the student team, Team FAST. Team FAST’s mission: Show the world know this technology on large scale!
First proof of concept
In 2015, ten students were sparked by nature’s way of capturing the power of the sun with solely water and carbon dioxide. That’s why they formed a team to explore a new energy carrier in which power can be captured: FA. Ten students built a 600 mW car driving on formic acid during their honours project at Eindhoven University of Technology.
Six months after Team FAST started, they presented a 1-meter car driving on FA with an output of 25 W.
Team FAST presents the concept of a 12m VDL bus driving on formic acid. The team never drove the bus while charging since the system was not ready for mobile operation. Later the system was applied stationary during a pilot with the BAM.
A Formic Acid Generator
Team FAST tests the formic acid to power generator for the first time out-door during the reconstruction of the N211 together with the BAM.
Key members of Team FAST are taking the next step by bringing this technology to market by starting DENS. DENS’ reformer technology can eventually replace all combustion engines and can be applied in a wide range of industries. Initially, we focus on developing and building stationary power generators.
Finishing the X2 prototype
The first version of the X2 prototype which delivers 2 Kw is ready to be tested. DENS continues to the development of a generator that produces 25 kw, which will be commercially available.
Finishing the first 25kW generator
DENS and Heijmans tested the Hydrozine generator succesful at Atlas Living Lab in collaboration with Eindhoven University of Technology
Market Introduction of the DENS power generator
First pilot series were introduced to the market
Start of series production
During 2022 preparations are made to start serieproduction of the 25kW Hydrozine generator
