TULSA, Oklahoma -

Technology that comes together in Tulsa is being used at the Super Bowl in San Francisco.

The Super Bowl isn't just a one-day event - fans have been taking part in festivities all week, which means vendors are lining the streets selling food, drinks and much more. And the no emission generator, "Zero Set," is helping provide power.

Luxfer-GTM is headquartered in California, but the hydrogen-powered generators are manufactured in Tulsa.

"Producing no emissions, no noise, and yet produces very clean electricity," said Luxfer-GTM founder Michael Koonce.

Koonce is in San Francisco right now, along with generators made at the Tulsa plant.

"Oklahoma is a nice central location from a shipping perspective,” he said. “Tulsa provides a great set of skill set with metal fabrication, coding of metals."

Three of the Zero-Set Generators are powering Super Bowl activities. One is being used as a recharging station for electric wheelchairs; the others, to power lighting and more outside the stadium.

Koonce said California is cracking down on diesel emissions from both vehicles and generators. 

"They have a very active campaign to try and curb emissions from diesel engines and generators, and, at the moment, there's really no technology out there," Koonce said.

That's where the Zero-Set Generator fills the gap. It produces water vapor as its exhaust, making it a safer and cleaner substitute.

Koonce said the generators first started being made in Tulsa a year ago.

As the demand for fuel alternatives continue to grow, the company is expanding and will be moving into a bigger facility in the next few months.
