ULTIMATE CELL®
CONTINUOUS COMBUSTION

Greater Efficiency / Lower Environmental Impact

UC3 – Ultimate Cell ® Continuous Combustion technology is designed to optimize continuous combustion in industrial plants, such as cement plants, municipal solid waste incineration, glass, pulp, steel, great power plants and other applications.

This technology is designed and sold exclusively by UTIS, with an estimated patent of between 8M € and 12M €, has an insurance coverage of around 5M € except in the US where it is still 750k €.

About this tecnology

A technology that increases combustion efficiency through the injection of small amounts of hydrogen.

The basic principle of this technology is the injection of small amounts of Hydrogen (H2) and Oxygen (O2) into the combustion system. When in operation, UC3 – Ultimate Cell ® Continuous Combustion technology initiates an electronically controlled electrolysis process, resulting in the chemical separation of hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2) molecules, which are injected into the combustion system.

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

HOW DOES IT WORKS

Hydrogen and Oxygen
without mid-storage

The UC3 system is in a container with standard measures (6.20m x 3.00m x 3.00m), with an approximate weight of 4.500kg that has in its interior a PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) electrolysis system, powered only by electrical connections (up to 80 kW/h) and tap water (up to 20 l/h), cooled internally by a chiller.

The UC3 technology uses a system of hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2) production by PEM electrolysis, without mid-storage accumulation in the system between the production and the point of consumption.

In practice, these gases will improve combustion efficiency, substantially reducing the use of fuels (coal, natural gas, biomass, petcoque, RDF, fuel-oil, among others), the emission of CO2 into the atmosphere and also energy costs.
