Product description

Scientists at Lithuanian Energy Institute's Centre for Hydrogen Energy Technologies have developed a method of hydrogen production from water, using reaction between plasma activated Al and Mg metals (or their alloys) and water. The technology is patented WO2013151408. For instance, aluminium powder is activated under low-temperature plasma treatment and immersed into the water. Reaction of activated aluminium with water yields about 1200 ml of hydrogen per gram of aluminium powder which can be supplied to the proton exchange membrane fuel cell generating about 1 Wh of electricity. In addition, obtained reaction by-product is suitable for the synthesis of the secondary pure product of gama-Al2O3 which can be used in the production of catalysts.
