“HIGH RATE AND HIGH EFFICIENCY HYDROGEN GENERATION VIA WATER ELECTROLYSIS CATALYZED BY NANO POWDERS.”©

ABSTRACT:

Over 90% of all hydrogen used today is made from steam-reformed petroleum. This process produces greater than 5 kg of carbon dioxide for each kg of hydrogen if using methane and even more if using natural gas. Hydrogen made from this process is about 70% energy efficient and costs about $4.50 per kg of hydrogen . Hydrogen from electrolyzed water dates to 1800; however, the process has been very energy inefficient and expensive. This Whitepaper discusses a three-dimensional electrode used for water electrolysis. The surface of the metallic reticulate electrode is coated on all surfaces with a plurality of nano catalysts adhered by a unique electrochemical process that produces excellent electrical contact with the powders while allowing them to interact with the electrochemical boundary layer. The result is a very high rate, solid-state, three-dimensional (3D) electrode. Data shared here is first in the half-cell, then in the full cell and shows consistently high rates and high energy efficiencies.
