About this tecnology

A technology that improves combustion efficiency through the injection of specific amounts of hydrogen gas “H2”.

Hydrogen offers an effective opportunity to magnify continuous-combustion in industrial applications. The scientific principle of our technology is the central production, and injection of specific, pressurised amounts of hydrogen gas (H2) and oxygen gas (O2). This technology is designed to optimize the industrial continuous-combustion reaction. When operating, the UC3 – Ultimate Cell ® initiates an electrolysis reaction inside its PEM electrolyser (which can range in size). Resulting in the chemical separation of hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2) molecules. These H2 and O2 molecules are then injected with controlled pressure, as per system operational needs, into the combustion stream. This pathway results in intensifying the combustion, increasing its efficiency and lowering its CO2 emissions. Utilising from the chemical integration of the hydrogen fuel as a catalyst to hydrocarbon-fuel combustion.

UC3 – Ultimate Cell ® Continuous Combustion technology has overcome all challenges to reduce industrial Capex requirements to a cost-effective level.

UC3 - Ultimate Cell ® Continuous Combustion technology optimizes combustion making it more efficient and with less environmental impact.

HOW DOES IT WORK

Hydrogen and Oxygen
without mid-storage

The UC3 system is containerized, pre-assembled system, with standard measures of (6.20m x 3.00m x 3.00m), and an approximate weight of 4.500kg. Internally, it has a PEM electrolysis system (Proton Exchange Membrane electrolysis system), powered by electrical connections (up to 80 kW/h) and supplied with tap water (up to 20 l/h). The entire system is cooled internally by a chiller.

The UC3 system technological method is the production of hydrogen gas (H2) and oxygen gas (O2) by PEM electrolysis production process, without mid-storage accumulation in the system between the production and the point of consumption.

In application, these gases will substantially improve combustion efficiency, reducing the use of fuels, such as (coal, natural gas, biomass, petcoque, RDF, fuel-oil, among others), and reducing the emissions of CO2 into the atmosphere.
