What happened to this efficient steam generator?

c4colorado (1097179) writes "I have recently been looking into efficient power and heating equipment and ran across this device:
enginion SteamCell (Translated to English from German)

This device apparently runs off of "Fuel oil, gasoline, Diesel, propane, various renewable bio fuels as well as hydrogen" with about 30% increased efficiency and reduced emissions. This device is only the size of a 12v car battery and can produce up to 25kw of thermal energy and is capable of jumping from 5% to 100% output in milliseconds.

I was interested in using this device to possibly power a modern steam-powered vehicle using a Quasiturbine or similar high-efficiency motor/engine. This could be a new avenue of research for "green" vehicles.

The information about this device and the company that designed it has disapeared, there was a great deal of information about it around 2003 but since then there has been no news or information about it.

I wanted to ask the community if anyone knows of the fate of this product, did the company change their name, get bought out by a big oil company with ulterior motives, go out of business because nobody cared, etc?"
