The Hydrogen Economy: How? Affordable onsite generation from pure water.

In the past, hydrogen has not been a viable alternative for distributed electricity generation because of the expensive, carbon-heavy manufacturing and supply chain. One Scientific Inc. has developed new modular equipment to manufacture hydrogen onsite from pure water to eliminate the costly hydrogen supply chain. These hydrogen modules afford game-changing economics for onsite hydrogen manufacturing and distributed electric generation.   

As a more cost-effective substitute for battery energy storage, for example, the distributed hydrogen gas-to-electricity module offers an alternative solution to the major limitations of batteries which include short run times, recycling requirements, limited lifespans and potential scarcity of input materials.

Affordability and efficiency are the key differentiating characteristics between these new technologies and traditional electrolysis. Novel materials and catalytic reactionary processes make use of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and a low-temperature plasma to achieve unprecedented efficiencies. The input fuel is pure water. Electricity is used in superheating steam to create the perfect environment for the reactionary process to begin. The amount of electricity needed for steam generation is significantly less than the amount of electricity needed for traditional electrolysis.  The hydrogen modules combined with ultra-high performance give businesses a key to uncuff them from the expensive hydrogen supply chain.

Thousands of laboratory hours have been logged on equipment with consistent results including third-party verification of data. In 2018,  several commercial quality pilot systems and testing in chemical processing, fuel cell vehicle fueling, and peaking power markets will take place.

What will follow? A hydrogen economy for this generation instead of a future generation.
