Element 1 hydrogen technology uses methanol as the primary feedstock – it is simple to access, store and transport, is a highly efficient hydrogen carrier, and gives a clear pathway to a future of carbon neutral transport via renewable methanol.
Becoming Carbon Neutral
Carbon emission reduction is a global priority. By utilizing our unique technology for converting methanol to hydrogen to support fuel cells for electricity production we can make a significant contribution to decarbonizing stationary power and transportation.
On-site onboard, and
on-demand hydrogen generation
For a cleaner world and greater energy efficiency.
Easy and safe to store and transport as a liquid
No high-pressure hydrogen transportation or storage is required.
Highly efficient as a hydrogen carrier
There is more hydrogen in a cubic meter of methanol than there is in a cubic meter of liquid hydrogen.
Ready to meet all future regulatory requirements by simply switching to renewable methanol.
What Methanol Delivers
As an extremely effective hydrogen carrier, methanol is:
Immediately and readily available globally, and widely approved as a fuel type.
35% to 75% reduction in the cost of hydrogen at the point of use.
Increasing Hydrogen Capacity
By combining methanol with water, we increase the hydrogen yield by 50%. In fact, of the product hydrogen delivered from Element 1 hydrogen generators, 33% comes directly from water.
No Costly Storage
There is no need for specialized high-pressure storage tanks – we produce just the right amount of hydrogen at the time of need and feed it via our buffer tanks directly into a fuel cell.
This eliminates the logistical challenges and costs inherent in distributing compressed hydrogen – with no NOx, SOx or PM emissions.
