The ultimate goal for portable and vehicular fuel cells powered from hydrogen is the ability to produce the hydrogen directly from the Earth’s most readily available and renewable resource, non-potable water.
SiGNa’s free flowing, non-pyrophoric sodium silicide (NaSi) powders are easily handled and used. They are stable in air at room temperature, absorbing moisture slowly without ignition. Their reaction with water occurs rapidly and completely without a catalyst to produce greater than 9.8 wt.% clean hydrogen gas with environmentally friendly by-products.
The SiGNa NaSi hydrogen generators are the only available standalone high performance systems:
Currently SiGNa is working on the next element in the alkali metal family, Lithium. A number of new discoveries have been made. Read More
