About The Technology
H2IL is focused on technology acquisition of its revolutionary self-sustaining hydrogen production method.
Discover why this method is considered to be the Holy Grail of energy and a solution to clean electrification and fuels.
The energy world is rapidly shifting to accommodate clean and safe energy. The energy transition includes hydrogen is the mix but has many challenges. H2IL presents a solution that addresses all these challenges in, what could be classed, a single bullet solution.
Many corporations are endeavouring to search out emerging revolutionary technology to give them the monopoly in this rapidly fragmenting energy industry.
H2 Innovation Lab (H2IL) have a solution in the form of a new energy technology. This technology is truly revolutionary and game-changing for the following reasons:
Like nuclear fission and fusion this technology enables self-sustaining energy but without splitting or fusing atoms.
Superior to nuclear, this technology produces a limitless energy that can be stored as well as instant conversion to electricity or heat.
Hydrogen production on-site therefore eliminating costly, complex storage and transportation issues.
A secure means of energy with a reliability that, unlike most renewable energies, parallels stable nuclear or fossil fuel power.
A fully saleable technology from small local hydrogen supply facilities or power stations up to large scale ammonia, green steel, synthesis fuel production and existing power plant conversion.
Safe and eco-friendly with absolutely no detrimental byproducts or carbon emissions.
Low cost and undemanding infrastructure makes for a rapid change and ease of integration.
A method of combining energy at an ionic level, enabling the release of bound hydrogen by harvesting a natural galvanic energy stored in abundant and low cost metals. The energy content of the hydrogen is many time greater than the input catalyst electricity. This has proven to enable self-sustaining energy generation with very little metal consumption.
Energy is not being created. Hydrogen is the product (usable energy), and is abundant in supply. This is simply an efficient method of releasing it from a bonded state.
Conventional electrolysis of water with a 60% efficiency is not new. However, Galvanic Enhanced Electrolysis is breaking through the efficiency barrier, enabling self-powering hydrogen and energy generation at any location!
In short, the closest comparison to this technology is nuclear power but in this application, the abundant metals are safe and recyclable. Common nuclear power generation uses an energy stored in certain scarce metals. The H2IL generation method also uses an energy stored in certain metals but abundant in supply. A small amount of input power (from the grid or 5% feedback directly from attached H2 to power Fuel Cell) will excite and sustain a hydrogen generating reaction. The combination of two energy sources that transforms into a large amount of energy that, like nuclear power, is self-sustaining. Energy is not being created, which is impossible, but simply transferred from one form to another and supporting the laws of thermodynamics.
The advantages of the H2IL technology over fossil fuel and nuclear power are numerous and include:
Conventional power plants generate from a single station with problematic and costly power distribution infrastructure connecting the wider grid. Because the H2IL system is scale-able and self-sustaining, the size and output can be scaled to either match that of large power stations or scaled down to small, local microgrid installations. A sustainable and reliable power supply day an night in all weather conditions that can eliminate the reliance on a main power grid and their associated issues.
The non-toxic byproduct is recyclable or has other commercial value, unlike nuclear power, where the radioactive byproduct is difficult and expensive to confine.
Hydrogen can either be converted to heat, mechanical or electrical energy instantly, or become an energy carrier and be stored for future consumption.
The green hydrogen based technology will be welcomed by the public, unlike nuclear power with a stained track history resulting in the decommissioning of stations and project contracts cancellations.
The hydrogen atom can be a fuel but is bound is water molecules. This technology is simply a highly efficient method of releasing it from that bonded state. Not just another electrolyzer - See (Comparison Chart).
What is unique is the amount of external energy needed to split the bond. Because there are two electrical energies (electricity and galvanic energy) combined in the H2IL technology the viewer may only focus on the usable input energy and overlook the unseen galvanic energy.
A small input energy stimulates a electrochemical reaction to increase a natural internal charge potential. The added secondary feedstock is galvanic energy. Providing most the charge potential for water electrolysis with very low metal consumption at $0.34/kg of hydrogen.
Not to be undermined however, is the revolutionary aspects of this type of energy generation. Most other known energy generation methods is a combination of electrical (electrical to magnetic) and kinetic. The combination of electrical and electrical energy makes for an energy generation method that is not reliant on the common kinetic motion from turbines harvesting wind, water steam or sea flow. That is game changing as it opens doors to a versatile range of energy generation methods and chemical fuel synthesis.
Infrastructure Cost & Convenience:
As with all fuels, cost and convenience in use will determine it success. The H2IL Galvanic Enhanced Electrolysis (G.E.E.) technology is an attractive solution to the many obstacles surrounding green hydrogen.
Some factors to consider:
Green hydrogen from conventional electrolysis is very energy intensive. To produce just 25% of the worlds future hydrogen energy demand (excluding industrial applications) around 31,320TWh of electricity would be required to power standard electrolyzers. This is more electricity than is currently generated worldwide from ALL sources combined.
One may argue that this will self-rectify as renewables reduce in cost and more farms are installed. However, energy demand will increase into the future as our reliance on fossil fuels reduces. Statistics indicate that electrification of the transport sector will place a huge demand on existing grids and energy infrastructure.
In addition, the tremendous power draw by conventional electrolyzers require placement as close as possible to the energy source. Most renewables are strategically positioned miles away from end consumption and distribution requiring complex storage and transportation or pipeline infrastructure. All this adds to costs, inconvenience and compliance approvals.
The H2IL technology provides solutions:
Over 50 times more efficient than conventional large scale electrolyzers means much lower power demand, or much higher production for the given renewable energy infrastructure. The power demand reduced with upscale but consider this benchmark example.
A 24 cubic meter cell (3x4 meter footprint) would produce 29kg/h (250 tones per year) consuming just 19kWh of electricity. Compare this to 1,450kWh power demand from conventional electrolyzers. Alternatively the production output for 1,450kWh of power would be 2204kg/h (19 million tons per year). These numbers increase on a logarithmic scale as the cell (or number of cells) increase and the surface area of galvanic energy becomes larger.
An application where grid power is driving the electrolyzer can be located at any point on the existing grid. Installed right at point of gas distribution or consumption.
This is workable because the current draw in Amps to power the (G.E.E.) cell is exceptionally low. For example the 24 cubic meter cell requiring 19kWh of electricity, demands around 80 Amps of current draw at 240 Volts, compared to 18,000 Amps at 80 Volts for conventional electrolyzers. The current draw, rather than voltage, is what taxes the power grid. Conventional methods will require larger size cabling and a complete multibillion dollar grid upgrade.
An application where less than 5% of the hydrogen produced, feeds back into a fuel cell to self-power the (G.E.E.) electrolyzer. Enabling self-sustaining production and eliminates the complex supply chain of gas storage and transportation.
Hydrogen presents unique issues when it comes to high volume storage. Also standard gas pipelines are not usually hydrogen ready. The ability to produce hydrogen on-site, at any location without grid power, opens doors to many possibilities including microgrids and fuel supply in remote locations.
In addition, the flexibility of scale enables thousands of self-sustaining, small scale hydrogen supply outlets and microgrid power generation facilities to be installed. Above or below ground, roadside, parks and reserve, fuel stations, parking lots, even home installations with little land usage. Installations in small locations where other fuel based power supply generators are not able to accomplish. See more in the Applications section.
The flip side of the convenience coin.
The H2IL technology requires frequent galvanic rod exchange. This process is carried out every 30 to 90 days depending on the load requirements and cell size. Larger installations that require less input power per kg/H2, will consume less internal galvanic metals, hence a longer service period. The exchange process is a one-man operation taking less than 3 hours for a one cubic meter cell. The galvanic metal rods calculate to $0.34 per kg of hydrogen produced and are much easier and cost efficitive to transport and store than hydrogen. (Comparison Chart)
This is based on the current quick change system and there is much room for improvement of the mechanisms involved especially on a large scale commercial basis. All electrolyzers require some level of maintenance including electrolyte water exchange and refill so this is not considered a labor intensive task especially in light of all the advantages highlighted above.
