Electrolysis

Overview

  • Overview Video: Water as Fuel (via ZPE) (3 min) - While academia has been spurning the topic, hundreds, if not thousands of hobbyists and independent investigators worldwide are working on various electrolysis-like projects which put out more energy than was required to run the electrolysis unit. (PES Network Video; Aug. 31, 2007)
  • Feature: Electrolysis > Hydrogen / Electromagnetic >

The algae also need light in order to produce the H2. (The Green Optimistic)

Proton Energy Systems

  • Proton Energy Systems - Manufactures PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) electrochemical systems to make hydrogen from water with its HOGEN® hydrogen generation systems. PEM electrolysis allows Proton Energy's HOGEN hydrogen generation systems to produce 99.999+% pure hydrogen at process pressure without mechanical compression and without caustic electrolytes.

The cell stack assembly is composed of individual membrane assemblies stacked into a cell stack where water and electricity are brought in to produce hydrogen gas. Deionized water flows into the positive side of the cell where it is dissociated by electrolysis into protons, electrons and oxygen. The oxygen is carried away by the water flow. The positively charged protons are attracted to the negative side of the cell. These protons use the sulfonic acid ion groups embedded within the membrane as the path to travel through the solid material. Meanwhile, the electrons flow through the power supply to the negative electrode where they link up with the emerging protons to form molecules of pure hydrogen gas.
