A game changing energy technology paralleling the supply demands of fossil fuel and nuclear power plants while superseding all current methods.
Galvanic Enhanced Electrolysis is a fully scale-able energy generation method, breaking through the efficiency barrier and paving the way to a hydrogen based clean energy future.
Q: Are you claiming to create energy?
A: NO. That is impossible. Because the only usable input energy is electricity, H2IL have stated ‘more output energy than input energy’ to emphasize the scale and versatility of this technology. The small amount of input usable energy needed to stimulate the electrochemical reaction is increased many times only due to the added secondary galvanic energy which, like kinetic energy in a generator, provides most the usable output energy.
Not to be undermined however, is the fact that its revolutionary from the view point that 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 form turbines harvesting wind, water steam or sea flow. That is game changing!
Q: Do you have a single video proving it works?
A: Yes: Video.1. Video.2. In addition please refer to the verification page which including real-time CCTV footage of many tests performed using a PEM fuel cell to calculate the efficiency. Using data lodging power supply and electronic load, the reports will prove a greater electrical energy output than the supplied input power.
Q: I don't understand how this is a free energy and how it's unlimited?
A: The term 'Free Energy' refers to a natural form of energy, not so much the cost factor to harvest the energy. There is always a cost factor in any form of renewable energy and the commercial system that exists needs a cost factor to function. If energy was free then no one would be providing energy to the world. The energy derived from metals (like nuclear energy) is a natural, free energy. But it also cost money to harvest this energy. Yes the commercial system must be fed in order for it to feed us. Since (in this case) the metals can be recycled then it is limitless. The low cost metals provide energy to the supplier at a cost of $10 per Megawatt - constant energy 24/7. That means we all benefit.
Q: What is the ongoing running costs of this system?
A: The fuel is, in most cases, freely delivered sea or rain water and salt. External power is not required. The metal electrode life well exceeds our initial expectation and we have not yet been able to measure the loss over time. (We had publish a worst case scenario where the system is unstable and well over-driven, an electrode service cost of $0.34 per Kg of hydrogen or $0.03 per Kw electricity.) However latest research confirmed that the non-solid Anode that forms from the preconditioned electrolyte, consumes ALL the oxygen produced in the process of water splitting. With the oxygen ion not oxidising at a physical anode, the electrode is NOT being consumed.
Q: Is the output gas pure hydrogen or Hydrogen/Oxygen mix (HHO)?
A: Pure hydrogen. In conventional electrolysis including HHO the Anode is a solid metal plate that oxidises the oxygen ion forming a bubble of oxygen gas. Within the electrochemical process of this cell, the by-product is very hungry for oxygen ions and consumes ALL the oxygen produced in the process. The Oxygen ion forms a covalent bonds with this Anodic bi-product which in turn is removed with liquid circulation.
We have confirmed the gas quality with: 1/ Oxygen line flow sensors, 2/ Ignition testing 3/ Chemical testing for other impurities and 4/ Direct feed to a PEM Fuel Cell (PEMFC). A PEMFC is very sensitive to impure gas and the performance would drop off should the hydrogen not be 99.99% pure. We achieve a steady 1.73% higher voltage with a 50% load on the PEMFC. (1.73% higher than hydrogen feed from a PEM Electrolyser with a rated 99.99% purity. both gasses were at the same temperature). These results are matched each time we run a three hour test. We have run enough tests on the PEMFC to be convinced that the output hydrogen is extremely pure.
It is also to be noted that the hydrogen is more pure than that obtained from reformation, which inherently has a carbon-monoxide (CO) contamination content as high as 2% in some cases.
Q: Does this overcome the potentially lethal high pressure storage of hydrogen at fuelling stations?
A: Since this hydrogen generator runs constantly 24/7 there is no need to store large volumes of gas in tanks for when the sun doesn't shine or the wind doesn't blow. Also the output hydrogen purity is cleaner than reformed gas and free of oxygen enabling much safer conditions for pressurising the gas to the level needed for automotive fueling.
Q: Does the gas need to be pressurized and stored if a fuel cell is run directly from the generator?
A: No storage is needed. Any hydrogen fuel cell can run directly from the output gas. This supports many power supply applications including a safe means of charging EV's.
Q: Is the waste bi-product acidic or harmful to the environment?
A: No. The preconditioning of the electrolyte does not use acids or any non eco-friendly substance. The bi-product does have commercial applications so has a usable market value.
The technology does NOT consume Zinc or Aluminium in a solution of acid or any form of acid mix!
Q: Should not the bubbles of hydrogen in your video be very small if it was hydrogen?
A: The display bubblier is attached to the output of the Cell. Hydrogen is accumulated under pressure then released as bubbles within the bubblier. Due to the high volume of gas, the bubblier has series of 2mm holes which allows the release of large pockets of gas as large bubbles. A single bubble of hydrogen would be too small to see with the naked eye.
A bubblier is an industry standard method of viewing the quantity of gas flowing. It is more realistic than simply viewing a flow meter numeric LCD readout. You will find many videos including those produced by major corporations that use a bubblier as an indicator of gas production.
Q: What are the patent number?
A: The technology has secured final patents in all major countries including US, Canada, Japan, China, UK, Eu and many other countries. Through discretion we have been advised to only give out patent numbers to valid candidates following satisfactory dialogue.
Q: What do you add to the electrolyte to enable it to become the anode?
A: This level of information is hidden intellectual I/P and not open to the public. It is one of the (K.F.C.) type recipes that gives the patents extra strength and makes it more attractive for acquisition. However the process and substance added to the electrolyte is not acidic so the waste bi-product is environmentally friendly.
Q: Conventional electrolysers generate 20g per KWh, what is the conversion rate of your generator?
A: There being an additional elctrctochemical reaction (galvanic) the conversion rate depends on the size of the cell. The 1 cubic meter cell produces 1Kg for 2KWh of input electricity which equates to 500g/KWh. Whereas the small 0.004 cubic meter demo unit used in the verification process delivers 5g/75Wh (75 watts for one hour). Calculated from 1 SLPM for 80Wh. The output can also increase on a logarithmic scale with increased input power.
Q: Are you receiving much opposition from the science world given the claims?
A: Yes. This is highly disruptive technology that is classed 'too good to be true'. Science has evolved over the decades with new understandings written into books. The science here is also undiscovered in current, up to date, science books. However the science is logical and as one professor stated "conforms with galvanic energy". Please refer to page "The Science"
Q: Are you selling shares or equipment to the public?
A: No! We are not setting up for production and are not looking for finance. While H2IL have the capacity to start production, our goal is to assign patents or rights to an organisation large enough to integrate the infrastructure world wide. Our commitment is to donate 90% of all profits to natural disaster relief programs.
