Austin, TX, United States, 2008/07/24 - Low-Voltage, Low-temperature process produces less expensive Hydrogen - GlobalHydrogenInc.com.
Global Hydrogen, Inc. announces a newly developed, low-voltage, low-temperature, and high-efficiency DC voltage electrolysis generator for producing hydrogen efficiently and inexpensively. Leveraging proprietary electrolyte solution and electrode construction, this system is producing 1 kilogram (kg) of hydrogen per 41.2 kilowatt hour (kWh) with approximately 90% efficiency. The most efficient systems produce the same amount of hydrogen utilizing more energy, usually around 53.4 kWhs. This technology stands poised to revolutionize the hydrogen generation industry and all other industries that relate to hydrogen energy.
The ideal hydrogen production system aims to produce hydrogen for less than $3.00 per kg, or about 6 cents per kWh. Currently, the most efficient systems in use are producing hydrogen at $3.20 per kg, short of the industry’s ideal goal, while the rest of the industry is producing hydrogen for approximately $3.57 per kg. Global Hydrogen’s system produces hydrogen at $2.47 per kilogram.
Consider that 1 kg of hydrogen is equivalent to 1 gallon of gasoline. To travel 400 miles on traditional gasoline, at $4.00 per gallon and 16 gallons to the tank, would cost a consumer $64.00. Using Global Hydrogen’s patent-pending process, you can travel the same 400 miles for $22.23.
Not only does this system produce hydrogen more efficiently than most, but it can efficiently produce hydrogen on any power grid, including residential power grids. With this process, it will soon be within reach of the average consumer to affordably utilize hydrogen power.
The most common hydrogen production technique involves the steam-reformation of fossil fuels, which not only consumes limited natural resources but also contributes to polluting our environment with greenhouse gases as a by-product. The Global Hydrogen process uses water, not fossil fuels, to generate hydrogen. Additionally, NO greenhouse gases are produced in the process.
