Hydrogen cheply produced! Belgian researchers from the University of Leuven made headlines when they announced that they finally managed to find a way of cheaply producing hydrogen - quite the feat, especially now that hydrogen-solutions for transportation and energy generation are gaining in popularity. Affordable green hydrogen: a sustainable way of putting our most abundant resource to good use.

Hydrogen Solutions For Transportation

Recommended: Hydrogen Energy Storage Revolution In The Netherlands

The Belgians developed a special kind of solar panel that is able to suck moist out of the air and turn it into hydrogen. One panel offers a return of some 250 liters of hydrogen per day: a new record, that is sure to lead to a surge of hydrogen-powered innovations - after all, the fuel required for this is now available at a very affordable price.

Hydrogen, when do we need it?
When hydrogen is combined with oxygen in a fuel cell, energy in the form of electricity is produced. This electricity can be used to power vehicles, as a heat source and for many other uses. The advantage of using hydrogen as an energy carrier is that when it combines with oxygen the only byproducts are water and heat.

Just to illustrate this point, twenty solar panels would be all that is needed to provide an average family with enough energy and heat to last them a whole year. The unique properties of hydrogen are praised all around, not only because it is the most abundant resource available to us, making up much of the world around us; it is also a carrier of energy that is capable of storing and producing both electricity and heat. In doing so, it does not release any greenhouse gasses or other toxic substances. Provided that hydrogen is produced using clean energy - which has now been demonstrated by the team led by professor Martens.

Green hydrogen was always a major bottleneck because of its excessive price tag and difficulty of producing. It has not really moved beyond the stage of being promising just yet. Before introducing this green way of producing it, oil and gas was a prerequisite - kind of defeating the purpose. This is why the Belgian’s accomplishment is so significant.

Toyota Interested In Using A Prototype Of This Solar Panel To Produce Hydrogen

The industry has been quick to recognise it, with car manufacturer Toyota interested in using a prototype of this solar panel to produce hydrogen. Just a dozen of those panels could provide enough energy to power a hydrogen-fuelled car for a year or so, without the need for any additional fuels and resources.
The team is now rolling out its first prototypes to selected families and consumers for an extensive field-test of the capabilities and possibilities. In order to fully test this, their homes will be equipped with the panels and an underground tank, measuring about 4 cubic meters. This will allow excess hydrogen produced in the summer to be stored and kept for the winter months, where production is likely to decrease significantly.

Hydrogen: 3 interesting facts
It is a nontoxic, odorless, colorless gas that naturally exists in our Universe. Being the first element on the periodic table, Hydrogen is the lightest of all chemical elements. Interesting Hydrogen Facts: Majority of the Universe's mass (75%) is comprised of Hydrogen.

Provided that these tests will be passed, the next steps are a larger roll-out of the product, making it available in the market as an affordable, easy solution. Prices for the panels are not yet available, but here’s to hoping that it will truly be another point on which it sets itself apart from the competition.

Before you go!

Why do you need to produce H1 from "sucking" moist, H2O, out of the air? Why not use the "moist", the H2O in the oceans? That would avoid drying out the air.

Konstantin Balakiryan repeats the tragic fate
of Nikola Tesla in America


Humanity should learn lessons from mistakes made in the past. We shouldn’t repeat the same mistakes twice.
In January 1943 at a New York Hotel, very sick, rejected by everyone an old man with a bunch of unpaid debts died.
This would just be another ordinary case, if this person were not a brilliant inventor and scientist, a real American treasure - the great
Nikola Tesla.
The tragedy of his departure from life was exacerbated by the personal conflict of interest by John P. Morgan. He deprived the American people of the opportunity to get wireless electric power, laser's, wireless phones almost a 80 years ago, besides other hundreds of amazing Nicola Tesla’s inventions not being introduced- they were stolen and put on a shelf to be forgotten
With his inventions, Tesla tried not only to enrich science, but to improve and make life easier for ordinary Americans, but he was in
every way obstructed by those who were not profitable. He was bullied, betrayed and deceived many times ...

77 years have passed and this tragic story repeats itself again. A very old, rejected by everyone, seriously ill person survives the rest
of his life, almost in poverty in the richest country in the world. Actually, today it is an ordinary event, but this elder made the greatest
discoveries that can completely change and improve the living conditions on planet Earth.
However, he, like Tesla, is humiliated. He feels betrayed, deceived and that others stole his ideas, projects and devices from him. The age of the Internet has brought new "instruments of torture" - hundreds of engaged professionals, bought by people who extract incredible profit thanks the dirty energy;have come to massively troll him to trying in every possible way to devalue the significance of his discoveries and inventions.
They could have physically destroyed him a long time ago, as they destroyed the legendary Stanley Mayer and a dozen other scientists and inventors who worked with hydrogen; but chose the more “humane”
way for him - to make it a virtual corpse.
With a high fence of lies and prejudices, they shielded the American people from any possibility of using the revolutionary technologies
proposed by Professor Konstantin Balakiryan. Its discoveries can save people from having to breathe smog, drink contaminated water, fear and death from hurricanes, wildfires, floods and other global disasters.
Here is a partial list of his discoveries and inventions:
- He proved and showed that ocean water is the main energy carrier a main fuel on Earth;
- For the first time in the history of physics, without the help of a collider, under laboratory conditions, it split an oxygen atom into
nucleons;
- Using resonances from a wide range of acoustic vibrations and cavitation leading to intense “collective excitation”, the water molecule
transmuted each oxygen atom into 16 hydrogen atoms;
- The conversion of an oxygen atom to hydrogen atoms at room temperature and low energy costs is a classic example of the cold fusion reaction. Dozens of researchers tried to ascribe authorship in the implementation of cold fusion, but only Professor Balakiryan really made this great discovery;
- He made and presented for testing a hydrogen reactor in which 1 liter (1 kg.) of water turns into 960 grams of hydrogen. The industrial use of the Symphony-7A series reactors in the United States will help get rid of the heavy debt burden of $ 23 trillion;
- All these scientific discoveries were confirmed by 3 laboratories with the highest level of trust in the USA. (AirKinetics, Inc.; TRC Advanced Technologies Inc; Horizon Air Measurement Services, Inc,);
- Developed the concept of proton batteries, the capacity of which is 8-12 times higher lithium ion batteries;
- Created a new generation of fuel cells “Delta-FC5” without expensive catalysts using platinum group metals and without unreliable
membranes;
- Justified the technical basis for desalination plants of sea water "Sigma-1M" for the production of drinking water of unlimited volume;
- Prepared a prototype of a household waste recycling plant using economical plasma hydrogen burners;
- Developed a technique for a sharp increase in the number of events of collisions of space neutrinos with nucleon’s for Neutrino Observatories;
- Designed "hydrogen capsules" - an incredibly effective weapon for fighting forest fires;
Summing up the scientific and technical heritage of Konstantin Balakiryan, you can to assert with confidence that he gave us the opportunity to have ecologically clean all modes of transport (road, water, air, space);
Delivered mankind from the need to produce electrical energy mainly “using dirty technology” due to non-renewable natural resources
and very dangerous and problematic nuclear energy.
He solved the problem of drinking water, the lack of which in the coming years could become the most serious challenge for the
population of many regions of the Earth.
He proposed the most advanced technology for the disposal of household waste using hydrogen plasma torches.
Delivered from fear of burning alive or overnight losing your home and property on fire in the wild fire season.
People of planet Earth, let's turn our faces to the person who did everything possible to save our planet and our lives, as well as the lives of our children and grandchildren.
A separate appeal to the American people: let's not allow a tragic mistake to be repeated and we will do everything to introduce all the outstanding discoveries in order not to lose what Konstantin Balakiryan did for us, as happened in the past with the legacy of the great Nikola Tesla.
To verify the veracity of everything that is written in this publication, go to Google and do a search - "Kotstantin Balakiryan" .

What will happen to the planet if lots of moisture is removed from the atmosphere to be split into hydrogen? Will the world become much drier? Will the seas become salaried and unable to sustain life? Hope a scientist can explain!

Dear All, Greetings,
I saw the short video and I would like to congratulate you for your achievement.
Having said that, a couple of questions comes up to my lips which are:
1. By electrolysis, we need 50kW of electrical energy to produce 1 kg of hydrogen. Correct?
2. You are referring to liters, and in this case at 1 Atm. So proportionally the 250 litter of produced hydrogen (in gas form), what amount of electrical energy will have to consume?
3. The surface area of the panel is 1 m2 or a bit larger, and in this case, receives 1 kWp of solar radiation. What is the proportion of the received radiation which is converted into hydrogen?
Yours Sincerely
Evan Arkas, PhD Astrophysics
