Hydrogen production from water - efficient method and apparatus
University of Central Florida, Florida, United States
A method, apparatus, and chemical composition have been invented for producing high purity hydrogen from water efficiently and simply. Using inexpensive materials as catalysts at ambient conditions, 99.99% pure hydrogen is generated, and can be used without further purification in all types of fuel cells.
Primary Application Area: Renewable & Hydrogen Energy
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 4

Value Proposition: The technology developed by UCF researchers provides an efficient, simple, and cost effective means of splitting water in to its constituents, a better process than splitting ammonia. Additionally, with CO2 emission concerns mounting, the industry will be driven to technologies such as this which do not produce CO2.
