Ukrainian research laboratory for special instrument engineering offers a technology (an installation) for production of ultrapure hydrogen and oxygen from water steam by electrochemical electrolysis with solid electrolytes. The advantages of this offer are technological (the ultrapure products, compact size of installation, ability to work from a standalone power source) and competitive (quality of the products, price). Cooperation type is likely to be licensing or technical cooperation.
The Ukrainian university since 1998 works on electrochemical engineering field and has almost XX years on experience in the field of special instrument. Specific area of activity: typical applications for the hydrogen/oxygen generators including residential CHP (combined heat and power), hydrogen home refueling systems, telecom back up power systems, life support systems for space applications and large scale power-to-gas installations.
They have developed an electrochemical electrolysis that enables production of hydrogen and oxygen from water sources. The production of hydrogen and oxygen from excess of water steam in industries will represent for the company obtain a high added value sub product.
An advanced a technology and an installation for production of ultrapure hydrogen and oxygen from water steam by electrochemical electrolysis with solid electrolytes.
An industrial model has been manufactured and tested.
Power supply 220 V, 50 Hz
Operating current 1,5-2,0 А
Time to operating mode 20-30 min
Performance (oxygen) 2-4 L/h
Pressure (oxygen): working 1,6 atm, max 3 atm
Product purity 99,9 vol. %
Prospects of application in the market: a wide range of applications of ultra-pure hydrogen and oxygen (medical equipment, vacuum equipment, food processing, electronics, analytical technique, the military-industrial complex, aerospace complex, road transport, etc.)
The Ukrainian University wishes to team up with companies but also researchers who use ultrapure hydrogen and oxygen etc. The University is looking for cooperation that will bring this technology to the market on a large scale. The types of co-operation may include licensing or technical cooperation.
Use of high-temperature electrochemical electrolysis enables production of hydrogen and oxygen not only from water but also from water steam. An integrated sensor for control of oxygen / hydrogen concentration and a regulator ensure ultrapure end products.
Production of ultrapure end products (hydrogen and oxygen); absence of mechanical parts; ability to work from an independent power source; easy operation and maintenance; small size, high reliability.
Purity of hydrogen and oxygen produced by the generator is 99,9 vol. %.
Package of documents is ready for patenting
The lab is looking for cooperation that will bring this technology to the market on a large scale. The company is open to any cooperation that adds to this goal, like joint research, license agreement or technical cooperation agreement.
Task to be performed: further development of the technology and installations for various applications, patenting, elaboration of technical documentation, organization of production.
The installation can be used in industries where there is a need to utilize excess of water steam, the installation can be used to produce additional products – ultra-pure hydrogen and oxygen – that are in demand for a lot of application.
- medical equipment (emergency room, maternity hospital, field surgery, equipment for processing of medical instruments, equipment for the preservation of blood and medicines, machines "mountain air");
- food industry (conservation and preservation of products, production of oxygen fruit drinks, preparation of oxygen cocktails);
- vacuum equipment (precision oxygen feeders, oxygen vacuum blowers, oxygen absorbers in a vacuum apparatus);
- electronic industry (production of ultrapure materials and substances, pumping oxygen without violating of leak tightness, for example, from CRT);
- analytical technique (spectral instruments, standards for calibration of analytical instruments).
