NewHydrogen releases its green hydrogen generator prototype

Presented by NewHydrogen, Inc. Developer of innovative low-cost green hydrogen production technology, today gave an update on its hydrogen generator prototype launch showcasing its new low-cost, high-performance catalyst technology.

The prototype will continue to serve as a platform for incorporating additional next-generation electrolyzer component innovations that the company will develop in the future.

In preparation for the upcoming full-cell performance evaluation, systematic acid water splitting testing using commercial platinum-iridium-based catalysts is now under way to determine the benchmark performance of existing commercial catalysts and to set up a standard test protocol.

Larger volumes of catalysts with consistent physical properties are required for the full operation of a typical electrolyzer platform. Therefore, the company is amplifying the synthesis of its noble catalysts before evaluating upcoming performance that includes activity transfer to the electrolytic cell, long-term stability, hydrogen production rate, specific energy consumption, and estimated total costs of the new catalysts.

According to a recent article by Hydrogen Fuel News, the market for hydrogen cars is expected to take off by 2028. So far, the market for zero-emission passenger cars has been dominated by battery electric technology. However, lower green hydrogen prices and energy security in terms of electricity in many regions of the world are causing automakers, governments and consumers to view hydrogen more favorably than was the case previously.

“We are very pleased with the progress of the green hydrogen program at UCLA,” said Dr. David Lee, CEO of NewHydrogen. “We look forward to seeing more exciting achievements as we systematically expand our technology focus beyond catalysts in 2023.”

NewHydrogen is developing a breakthrough technology to produce low-cost green hydrogen using renewable energy. Hydrogen is the cleanest and most abundant fuel in the universe. It is emission-free and only produces water vapor when used.

Unfortunately, hydrogen does not exist in its pure form on Earth so it must be extracted from a source containing hydrogen. For centuries, scientists have known how to split water into hydrogen and oxygen using a simple and elegant device called an electrolyzer. However, electrolyzers are still very expensive. NewHydrogen plans to develop several component innovations to enable the next generation of low-cost electrolyser. The company’s initial focus is on replacing and reducing expensive rare earth materials, to help usher in a green hydrogen economy that Goldman Sachs has estimated to have a future market value of $12 trillion.
