Hydrogen can be generated from water by `splitting' it from oxygen. The most well-known process is electrolysis, but other mechanisms exist as well, such as catalyst in the presence of heat (e.g. solar), or superimposing radio frequencies.

Hydrogen from Water


  • 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)


Prof. Kanarev

Kenarev's Electrolysis: A Joe Cell Variant with Patents - Introduction and index of works by Professor Kanarev, includes five patents, several books about how water can be the main power carrier of future power engineering. Some processes described resemble those being attributed to the Joe cell.

Bar-Gadda LLC

  • Bar-Gadda LLC (index at PESWiki) - Prototype device converts water vapor or steam into hydrogen using a process called radiant energy transfer. Efficiency around 90%. Yields in excess of 80% H.

Xogen Power

  • 'Xogen Power Inc. - hydrogen-oxygen gas from water using frequencies; water purification, waste remediation, home power. Differs from Browns gas in that it uses frequency generator to apply current.

Michael Couch reported - Xogen was 20% owned by a CDNX company, Tathecus (spelling). The parent company had its stock frozen pending an investigation of the Xogen claims. The investigation never finished a report. I watched for two years to see if they would. Basically, it looks like the CDNX sabotaged the parent company in an effort to kill Xogen for the Queen and BP. I will attempt to verify the death certificate.

American Group of Companies



There are many whisperings on the underground of various teams that have working "hydrogen from water on-the-fly" technologies preparing for market. The scuttlebutt is that a person's life is in danger for presenting such a technology that would so thoroughly undermine the entrenched oil interests along with the political stooges that use fossil fuels as a method to keep their control over the industrial world.

Catalytic Systems



  • Hydrogen from Water using Boron - Chemical process allows for rapid liberation of hydrogen from water. The resulting boron oxide can then be regenerated to boron using renewable energy. Does require distribution infrastructure.

Purdue Organosilane

  • Purdue Announces Hydrogen from Water, Organic Material - Purdue researchers have developed a novel technique for producing hydrogen from water. It requires only water, a catalyst based on the metal rhenium (REE-nee-um) and an organic liquid called an organosilane, which can be stored and transported easily. (PESN; Aug. 31, 2005)


  • AllH2 - The cell is a combination of magnesium, aluminium and stainless steel. It weighs .061 lbs. and has a lifetime shelf life. It's dimensions are 3" X 12" X 1/4". This cell when immersed in seawater releases hydrogen gas.

Safe Hydrogen LLC

  • Safe Hydrogen LLC is developing a hydrogen fuel that can be distributed using the existing gasoline infrastructure utilizing magnesium hydride slurry as a pumpable hydrogen fuel. Hydrogen is generated -only when needed - by mixing the slurry in a compact mixing device with water.

Hydrogen Power Inc

  • Hydrogen Power, Inc Produces Hydrogen from Water - Hydrogen Now involves a chemical reaction between water, aluminum, and a catalyst to produce hydrogen on-demand. AlumiFuel powder, consisting of aluminum and catalyst can be easily transported and stored. The aluminum “splits" the water freeing the hydrogen and creating a benign byproduct of aluminum hydroxide. (The Energy Blog; December 28, 2006)
  • Hydrogen Power Inc - Hydrogen Now™ combines aluminum, water and an environmentally-friendly catalyst to create a water split reaction.

AirGen Corporation

  • AirGen Corporation - AGC’s technology involves a chemical reaction created by the mixture of water, metals and nanosized colloidal metal catalysts to generate hydrogen and oxygen gas using a thermal and/or electric energy source. The low process temperature required can be supplied by renewable sources and the only consumable is water.

Global Hydrofuel Technologies

  • Global Hydrofuel Technolgies - has developed a method for producing hydrogen-on-demand from aluminum-assisted water split reaction, hydrogen suitable for any application and without the need for hydrogen storage or distribution. As well, the byproduct of the process can be recycled and reused in the process.

Some of his ideas also utilize a turbine operating at 1100 C which is very expensive (prohibitively) to produce. - Sean Costello

  • Cheap Hydrogen Fuel - Researchers at GE say they've come up with an easy-to-manufacture apparatus that could produce hydrogen via electrolysis for about $3 per kilogram -- a quantity roughly comparable to a gallon of gasoline -- down from today's $8 per kilogram. They used a GE plastic called Noryl that is extremely resistant to the highly alkaline potassium hydroxide, and because the plastic is easy to form and join, manufacturing an electrolyzer is relatively cheap.
