Nearly all the hydrogen currently manufactured in the world is through the steam reforming of hydrocarbons, process that has low energy conversion efficiency and results to rapidly growing number of 8.8 billion tons of carbon being emitted annually – in order to generate one tonne of hydrogen, there has been released eight tonnes of carbon; this is data from 2009 by Royal Society of Chemistry.
Necessity to heat the enormous catalyst inside the steam reformer to the high working temperature average of 800 degrees C, spends large amounts of energy in order to operate. 8.8 billion Tonnes of carbon emitted in the atmosphere are devastating result of the anticipated “clean energy” usage. We cannot seriously think of kick-starting Hydrogen Economy without addressing this first obstacle. – Excerpt from speech given on GREEN LEADERS SUMMIT 2013 – Sydney, Australia
Plasma assisted hydrogen generation from water or natural gas; Projected to serve on-demand scalable stationary and mobile utilization with fuel cell, combustion and life support systems; Under highest energy efficiency employing LENR exothermic effect;
Hope Cell can be adapted to many existing devices and utilities which already consist of significant technical and capital input while minimizing need for grid or expensive hydrogen infrastructure, therefore bridging the gap of technology in transition from the 20th to the 21st century;
Transition from hydrocarbon fuels to hydrogen technological solutions
