Company Summary

Hydrogen replaces imported oil. It combusts with zero harmful emissions, eliminates the need for oil, and from our aluminum feedstock, is completely renewable. The problem with hydrogen is storage and transportation - until now. Our solid alloy is comprised of 90% common aluminum and can be safely stored indefinitely. After the alloy reacts with water, it becomes common alumina which can be recycled via industry standard technology.
