The Hydrogen Reactor

Solar Hydrogen Trends Inc. invented a Hydrogen Reactor. The technology provides multifactorial hydrogen reactor with elevated hydrogen production due to a set of sixteen (16) physical and chemical processes, acting simultaneously on the hydrogen bonds. The hydrogen reactor uses water as main fuel and its emissions are 100% clean (clean air).

The technology is non-volatile and produces free flowing hydrogen which can be compressed or used to convert to another form of energy.

The technology can be used as a free standing electrically powered device to produce unlimited amount of hydrogen at world’s cheapest rates or as a “bolt-on” hybrid solution.

The hydrogen reactor measures: length: 81 cm x width 36 cm x height 52 cm and weights114 kg.

Solar Hydrogen Trends Inc. performed two tests of its hydrogen reactor input and output by EPA certified gas testers. The official test certificates with results can be found in the performance results section below.

TRC Solutions, a national engineering services, consulting and construction management firm, performed an electricity input and hydrogen output test, in accordance with EPA certified standards on June 25, 2014.

AirKinetics Inc., a prominent nationwide emissions testing specialist, performed an input and output test, in accordance with EPA certified standards on January 25, 2014.

According to TRC Solutions test, on input of 415 watts, the mini reactor produces an output of 7,369 cubic feet of hydrogen per hour (electricity equivalent of 626 kWh). The estimated cost of inputs is $1.80 per hour.

According to AirKinetics test, on input of 500 watts, the mini reactor produces an output of 2,797 cubic feet of hydrogen per hour (electricity equivalent of 237 kWh). The estimated cost of inputs is $1.80 per hour.

On input of 500 watts, the mini reactor produces an output of 2,797 cubic feet of hydrogen per hour (electricity equivalent 221.5 kWh), at cost of $1.80

Electricity generation

The cost to produce 1,000 cubic feet of hydrogen for the Hydrogen Reactor is $0.65

Assuming 1 cubic foot = 79 watts electricity equivalent and there is 50% energy loss at production, the price to produce 1kWh with the hydrogen reactor will be $ 0.016 (1.6 cents per kWh).

Stand-alone electricity production

Hydrogen reactor runs on electricity. On input of 500watts the mini reactor produces, 2,797 cubic feet of hydrogen per hour, which contains electricity equivalent of 221kWh. With assumption that 50% energy is lost at production, 110kWh of electricity would be produced per hour. The initial input would be magnified by 220 times.

A Hydrogen reactor (s), coupled with CHP Technology (turbine or fuel cell), when placed adjacent to electrical power plant of any type, would magnify its input of electricity, of any range, by 220 times.

Thus, one wind turbine, coupled with hydrogen reactor(s) would produce electricity equivalent of 220 wind turbines.

Hybrid electricity production

The hydrogen reactor can be used as hybrid with existing coal powered power plants. The given coal burns at inefficient rates the addition of hydrogen to would burn coal at higher efficiency. Thus, increase the coal power plant output.

Current hydrogen market

The total worldwide hydrogen production in 2013 is estimated to be 35 billion cubic feet or $150 billion with anticipated 4% annual growth. The capital cost of facilities to support the production volume is over $200 billion. Current production levels release 330 million tons of CO2.

Hydrogen production for refineries and ammonia comprise 85% of the market. The refinery segment is anticipated fast growth due to the need of increased usage of hydrogen in hydrocracking and hydrotreating. Increased hydrogen is needed to clean oil from sulfur content.

In USA, steam methane reforming technology is used to produce the majority of hydrogen for ammonia production and refineries. A 130 MMCFD plant cost $250 million to build and $140 million annually to operate. Hydrogen reactor facility with similar output would cost less than $80 million to build and $40 million annually to operate. Capital cost savings of 70% and operational savings cost of 70% can be achieved with SHT technology.

According to National Renewable Energy Laboratory Passenger cars with engines between 2.5-3.5 liters consume 1 kg of hydrogen per 60 miles. At, average wholesale price of $2.5 for 1 gallon of gasoline, and consumption of 1 gallon of gasoline per 25 miles, the wholesale cost of gasoline would be $6 (8 retail) for 60 miles.

The cost to produce 1kg of hydrogen for hydrogen reactor is $0.25. Thus, Solar Hydrogen Trends can produce saving of 50% to 95% compared to gasoline.

Hydrogen exhaust after it burns is moisture, thus it completely safe for environment.

Department of Energy 2015 target for centralized production of hydrogen with electrolysis is $3.10/kg. Solar Hydrogen Trends reactor produces hydrogen at rate of $0.25/kg.

Hydrogen refineries

A hydrogen refinery can be built adjacent to any city to supply hydrogen via pipeline or storage units.

A hydrogen plant with 150 million cubic feet per day production would provide enough hydrogen to power 200 thousand homes.

Synthetic fuel, incinerators, ships and others

The Hydrogen Reactor can be used to power Fischer Tropsch conversion (H2+CO=Hydrocarbons) to produce synthetic fuels.

The Hydrogen reactor can be utilized in any of the 2,200 Waste to Energy plants. The Waste to Energy market is poised to grow 8% over the next three years. Given the efficiency of the hydrogen reactor, it can save over 70% of operating cost.

The hydrogen reactor produces 2,797 cubic feet of hydrogen at cost of $1.80 The technology can be used to power ships and heavy machinery and deliver exceptional performance.

Natural gas substitute

The price of natural for 1,000 cubic feet in USA is $4.30 for industrial and $10 for residential. The price in Europe for natural gas is 2x higher and the price in Japan for natural gas is more than 3x higher.

The cost to produce 1,000 cubic feet of hydrogen for the Hydrogen Reactor is $ 0.65. The heat of combustion of hydrogen is 2.5 that of natural gas. Twice less of hydrogen is needed to achieve comparable output.
