The International Open Source Hydrogen On Demand Builders Network.
1 LPM to 50 LPM HOD Business Opportunity
During the past 3 months catalytic carbon has been sent to more than 30 experimenters worldwide for evaluation. All reports received to date are encouraging. These tests show that anyone can use CC and produce pure hydrogen at any desired rate. Test results are available online.
The CC chemistry will work with no additional development, but apparatus must be built and manufactured for the successful use of this low-cost hydrogen fuel.
Most experimental work has used 30-micron aluminum powder, which works well because it has a high surface-to-volume ratio. I believe the successful development of the CC technology will be with the use of larger size aluminum fuel, so that the cost of the fuel will be less than the cost of aluminum powder. To do that, there are two design requirements:
1. There must be ENOUGH aluminum surface in the cell; perhaps 8 to 10 square meters (for a hydrogen production rate of about 1 to 5 LPM), and
2. The surface must be bare aluminum. That means there must be some means to remove the oxide from the aluminum. Mechanical burnishing? Other?
Might this be a business opportunity for you?
I am working more on the hydrogen-chemistry side of this problem and I don’t know much about cell building and applications. If you might be interested in this new CC technology as a possible business opportunity, please see the online document
My hope is that you are successful in working out the mechanical challenges and that your development of apparatus to use CC will be your future prosperity.
