NewHydrogen makes progress with its innovative green hydrogen generatorApril 13, 2023
NewHydrogen Inc. has made significant progress in the development of their green hydrogen generator prototype. A systematic acidic water splitting test was conducted to establish the benchmark performance of the generator prototype. The company’s benchmarking test confirmed that their prototype had a close match to the advertised performance of commercial catalysts typically used in commercially available electrolyzers, which shows the potential of NewHydrogen’s novel high-performance and low-cost catalyst technology.
The company recently reported progress in the development of its prototype.
NewHydrogen Inc. (OTC:NEWH) has announced that the baseline performance of their breakthrough green hydrogen generator prototype has completed its benchmarking phase and is currently available to evaluate NewHydrogen’s novel high-performance and low-cost catalyst technology.
A systematic acidic water splitting test was conducted to establish the benchmark performance.
NewHydrogen’s green hydrogen generator uses renewable energy and water to generate lost-cost green H2. The company needed to establish a benchmark performance of current commercial catalysts. To do this, they tested their generator prototype with a systematic acidic water splitting test, which was carried out using a five-layer membrane electrode assembly (MEA) stack that was embedded with commercial iridium and platinum-based catalysts.
The benchmarking test conducted by the company confirmed their prototype’s performance was a close match to the advertised performance associated with commercial catalysts that are typically used in commercially available electrolyzers.
“We are very pleased with the results of the recent benchmark testing at UCLA,” said CEO of NewHydrogen Dr. David Lee, in a recent press release announcing the company’s progress.
The next performance evaluation phase for the green hydrogen generator prototype is underway.
Following the success of their benchmarking phase, the next evaluation phase in the company’s green H2 generator prototype is currently underway.
According to NewHydrogen, this next phase in performance evaluation includes:
- Activity transition into electrolytic cell
- Evaluation of long-term stability
- Rate of hydrogen production
- Specific energy consumption
- Estimated overall costs of their new catalysts
NewHydrogen is excited to complete the next phase.
NewHydogen believes that their most recent accomplishment with their prototype is a significant step toward achieving their goal of developing a novel green hydrogen generator.
“We believe that our technology will help accelerate the adoption of green hydrogen, providing a clean energy alternative to power a wide range of applications,” Lee added.
Going forward, the green hydrogen generator prototype will keep serving as a platform for incorporating extra next generation component innovations to be developed by NewHydrogen.
