AlGalCo has the exclusive license to commercialize a patented new technology in which hydrogen is generated on demand simply by adding water to a solid alloy comprised of over 90% common aluminum. The process eliminates the need for high pressure containers and pipelines for creating and transporting hydrogen. The alloy can be safely stored at standard temperature and pressure. As the feed stock is ordinary aluminum, the spent alloy (alumina) can be recovered and recycled back into the original alloy an indefinite number of times. This is done by deploying 100-year old aluminum industry standard techniques. Any type of water will actuate the reaction.
BCS Ideas’ decades of automotive and industrial control experience made us a well qualified partner for this project. We have been involved in the vetting of the technology, development of controls and data acquisition for the beta phase and will be designing and producing the control module for the production unit.
