The Greentek Australia System uses hydrogen that is 99.99% pure. Hydrogen is commercially available from all gas companies and is produced in large quantities and is normally sold in cylinders.
The hydrogen we use, is stored in high pressure cylinders that ensures sufficient hydrogen is on board. The purity of the hydrogen ensures that we can maximise safety. Additionally, high levels of Safety have been designed into the system which exceeds all approved standards.
Some may have heard of hydrogen that is produced “on board” using electrolysis. The gas produced is call “Browns Gas” which is a mixture of Hydrogen and Oxygen.
If Hydrogen is mixed with oxygen, even small amounts, it becomes dangerous and will ignite easily. Whilst this is ok inside a combustion chamber, the risk is extremely high the gas may be exposed to ignition sources before it gets to the combustion chamber. To date, there have been no safety standards for these systems to follow.
Additionally, the energy required to produce the Browns Gas almost absorbs most of the energy released, so is inefficient and the
Because the Greentek Australia System uses commercially available gas, there are no energy losses inherent in systems using electrolysis to provide the hydrogen.
