Clean, green hydrogen at an affordable price to compete in the markets has been unavailable, until now. At least, that’s the view of BoMax Hydrogen, LLC, which produces clean hydrogen onsite and at room temperature using inexpensive reaction components.
The process, which is scalable, is photo-driven by light in the visible spectrum and can be provided by either LEDs or sunlight. Excited nanoparticles emit electrons that transfer to an enzyme component, catalysing the formation of hydrogen gas for use in fuel cells. The innovation behind BoMax has the potential to drive down green hydrogen production to costs of $1 per kg of hydrogen.
So how is such a cost to be achieved? The first cost analysis performed on this carbon-neutral process established that the price per kg according to hydrogen produced in the lab as $6.44 per kg of hydrogen in 2020. Recently, an exciting development in procuring source material for this reaction has shown that lowering costs to $1 per kg of hydrogen is within the scope of the BoMax team. A partnership forged with a subject matter expert and source provider will drastically reduce the costs of the two most expensive reaction components down by 85%, by bringing their manufacture to in- house production.
