Genesis Research and Development’s hydrogen-on-demand (HOD) technology will remove the primary obstacles in the use of current hydrogen fuel cell systems requiring, (1) storage of hydrogen gas on board, (2) at very high pressure (10,000 psi +/-), and (3) with range limited to finding refueling stations. The HOD system is far superior to many alternative fuel solutions, first, as it produces hydrogen real-time, on board the mobile or stationary platform, using earth-friendly compounds. Second, since hydrogen is constantly being produced it can be stored at very low pressure, specifically 8.5 psi. Third, refueling can take place anywhere by simply replacing the fuel cartridge—no need to find a “conventional” refueling station. Last, the spent fuel is 95% recoverable and reusable, and need only be returned for reconditioning. HOD’s constituent fuels can be safely stored for many years without degradation of stored energy making it viable for long-term standby applications such as backup generators and space flight.
