LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Apr 3, 2014) - Amazonica Corp. (
The new patent relates to an improved apparatus and method for generating ultra-pure gaseous hydrogen using a substantially cylindrical diffusion-catalytic membrane. The primary object of the present invention is to provide an ultra-pure hydrogen generating device that is reliable, maintainable, and economical to operate and one which yields enhanced productivity using a diffusion-catalytic membrane without a screen.
"I am very pleased with the progress that project manager, Dr. Glazunov has made to date and the filing of this patent is another step towards our goal of producing 99.999% hydrogen in a cost effective manner," said Michael Soursos, CEO of Amazonica Corp. "This patent not only enhances our technology but could also be a standalone technology that the Company could market or license."

Hydrogen is the simplest, most prolific, and lightest element in the universe. Hydrogen is not normally available in a gaseous state in our environment, since it readily combines with oxygen to form water, or with carbon to form fossil fuels such as crude oil, natural gas, or coal. Hydrogen has a number of uses, including in the manufacture of ammonia, but it is its potential as a fuel that is attracting significant interest and investment. It has been possible to construct or convert internal combustion engines to run on hydrogen for some time, but safety and storage concerns prevented any wide scale use. Recent advances in technology, particularly in fuel cells, allied to the environmental concerns from burning fossil fuels, have caused a re-evaluation of hydrogen as a power source.
The most common methods of producing hydrogen at the moment are by stripping the carbon atoms out of compressed natural gas using steam (known as "cracking") or the electrolysis of water. Both these processes are expensive, energy intensive and in the case of cracking, produces waste carbon. Commercial production of clean, cheap hydrogen is therefore a key requirement for large scale fuel cell usage.
