Photo Release -- QuantumSphere Announces Breakthrough in Clean Hydrogen Production for Industrial and Transportation Use
SANTA ANA, Calif., Feb. 25, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- QuantumSphere, Inc., a leading manufacturer of nano metals and alloys for applications in renewable energy, portable power, defense, electronics and other markets demanding advanced materials, today announced that it has achieved a breakthrough in clean hydrogen production through water electrolysis. Leveraging a proprietary advanced catalyst formulation, QSI-Nano NiFe(tm), QuantumSphere has effectively increased the surface area of commercial electrodes by approximately 1000 times. This increase is due to unique physical characteristics of nanoparticles. For example, a gram of QSI-Nano(r) materials have the surface area of about the size of a soccer field. To date, the QSI-Nano NiFe(tm) coated electrodes have surpassed 1,000-hour durability testing under harsh conditions (33% KOH, 1 A/cm2). These nano-enabled electrodes demonstrate QuantumSphere's ability to produce larger amounts of clean hydrogen on demand at improved rates.
