AS OF 2020
As of 2020, less than 0.1% of global hydrogen production comes from water electrolysis. This is mainly because water electrolysis requires significant amounts of energy and water to produce hydrogen.
For example, to produce 1 kilogram of hydrogen using water electrolysis requires approximately 44 kilowatt-hours, which is enough to power 2 average homes a day. In 2020, roughly 87 million tonnes of hydrogen was produced. To provide the equivalent hydrogen using water electrolysis would require enough energy to power 476 million average houses a year or about 48 times the number of households currently in Australia.
In addition, water electrolysis consumes significant amounts of water, which can be difficult and controversial to source, particularly under drought conditions.
The novel Organic Hydrogen Electrolyser Cell (OHEC) does not require any energy or water as a key input and instead uses organic chemistry to convert organic material directly into hydrogen.
Our Technology Adaptability
The OHEC device can be deployed directly onsite to where the hydrogen is needed. This removes the need to transport hydrogen, which also requires significant energy and specialist equipment to transport.
What Makes EM Energy a Sustainable Hydrogen Producer?
EM ENERGY HYDROGEN TECHNOLOGY
Our Competitive Advantage
The EM Energy Organic Hydrogen Eletrolyser Cell (OHEC) technology has four competitive advantages over current hydrogen production technologies.
ZERO ENERGY & WATER
Our technology does not require any energy, heat or water as an input compared to current green hydrogen solutions which consume significant amounts of electricity and water.
CIRCULAR ORGANIC WASTE
The end product of our technology is completely non-toxic and can be composted. In addition, our technology has the potential to use organic waste which could significately reduce waste to landfill.
SIGNIFICANT COST SAVINGS
Current green hydrogen solutions are prohibitively expensive owing to the significant cost of electricity. Our organic solution has the potential to create significant savings compared to electrolysing water
Our technology can be deployed directly onsite to where the hydrogen is needed, avoiding the difficulty of transporting hydrogen, which is expensive and prone to leaking into the atmosphere.
