HYDROGEN IS FUEL.
PURE AND SIMPLE.

Hydrogen is lighter than air and incredibly pure. When used in a fuel cell, it is highly efficient and leaves no carbon emissions behind. And best of all, it’s virtually everywhere.

HYDROGEN CAN BE FOUND IN:

THERE ARE A LOT OF WAYS
TO PRODUCE HYDROGEN

But hydrogen binds to almost anything. So before it can be used, it must be

Using a variety of process technologies available today, hydrogen can be separated by:

Steam reforming of methane is a common method of hydrogen production today. It starts with liquids or gases containing hydrogen like natural gas or sustainable biogas sourced from landfills. The fuel then reacts with steam at high temperatures in a reformer, leaving you with hydrogen.

Gasification is a process in which organic materials, like crops and livestock waste, are converted into hydrogen. The organic materials are placed under high temperatures, which triggers a reaction that separates the hydrogen.

Hydrogen can also be produced by separating water into its two primary elements—hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2). This process, known as electrolysis, passes an electrical current through the water to extract hydrogen. The electricity can be sourced from clean, renewable energy such as wind, solar, or hydro.
