Hydrogen is a curious element that was destined to power our cars and homes, but there are a few problems. Producing hydrogen (until now) has been a wasteful process. This, combined with the danger of transport/storage mean it has been impractical for widespread use, but what if everyone had a miniaturized hydrogen power plant that used cheap aluminum as fuel?
No moving parts means the only sound you’ll hear is a quiet stream of water
Our system produces no harmful byproducts meaning it’s completely safe for indoor use
By utilizing aluminum as fuel, our system produces some of the cheapest electricity on the planet
We engineered our system to be simple and friendly to use. Just add aluminum
This system is able to produce clean hydrogen with no carbon pollution is put back in the atmosphere
Our system is completely scalable, meaning it can be used to power everything from cellphones to cities
When the user inputs aluminum, the system strips it of a thin natural coating. This coating is what prevents aluminum from reacting with liquids in everyday use.
Once the barrier is stripped, the aluminum is introduced to water, where it causes a chemical reaction that splits the water into separate hydrogen and oxygen molecules.
The hydrogen from the reaction is collected and fed through a fuel cell where it is converted to electricity. Since the hydrogen does not have to be stored, there is no risk of fire or explosion.
After the reaction is complete, the barrier that was stripped in step 1 is filtered out, at which point it can be recycled back into pure aluminum or easily disposed of.
Using our system is simple, even though it sounds like sci-fi. All you have to do is put in raw aluminum (like soda cans), fill the tank with water, and you can start producing clean electricity within three minutes.
Our system can be scaled to power everything from cellphone batteries to whole power grids. Below are a few applications where our system will be used
Our system is the only renewable energy method which can be scaled to full capacity in under 3 minutes. This means it can provide instant power to meet the fluctuating demand of a power grid at a cost that is 82% cheaper than the US Average
Our system can be used to power homes (in some cases, with nothing more than the waste they produce). This system can be used to augment solar installations or run as a standalone system to power your home and reduce your energy costs.
Imagine never having to stop at a charging station again, or going on a cross-country road trip without mapping out places to charge. With our system, your EV can charge while its driving so you can explore without boundaries.
