Latest Invention: Portable Hydrogen Generator


The first invention of Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies that attracted a lot of attention was the company's hydrogen-powered toy car, which was launched in 2006. Now the company came up with something that can truly become revolutionary. Its latest invention is the world's first portable desktop hydrogen generator, which has recently been presented at CES.

Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies named its latest invention HYDROFILL. The company's new gadget can collect power from a power supply, solar panel or a wind turbine. Thus it will be able to extract hydrogen from its water tank in automatic mode.

The hydrogen that was produced takes a solid form and is afterwards stored in small refillable cartridges that include metallic alloys that soak up hydrogen into their crystalline structure. After being acquired, the hydrogen is discharged at low pressure.

Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies believes that its latest invention represents the first step towards the development of a technology that would allow refueling fuel cell electric vehicles.
