About this technology

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

Hydrogen offers an effective opportunity to amplify continuous-combustion output in industrial applications. The scientific principle of our technology is the central production and injection of precisely determined, pressurized amounts of hydrogen gas (H2) and oxygen gas (O2) into the combustion chamber. This technology is designed to optimize the industrial continuous-combustion reaction. When operational, the UC3 – Ultimate Cell ® initiates an electrolysis reaction within its PEM electrolyzer (which can range in size), resulting in the chemical separation of hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2) molecules. These H2 and O2 molecules are injected with controlled pressure, per application operational needs, into the combustion stream.

This catalytic process intensifies the combustion, increasing its efficiency and lowering its related CO2 emissions by utilizing the chemical integration of hydrogen gas as a catalyst for the combustion of hydrocarbon fuel (petroleum fossil fuels).

UC3 technology has overcome all design challenges to reduce industrial CAPEX requirements cost-effectively.

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


Hydrogen and Oxygen
without mid-storage

The UC3 system is containerized, plug & play system, with standard dimensions of (6.20m x 3.00m x 3.00m), and an approximate weight of 4.500kg. Internally, it embeds 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 methodology is the production of hydrogen gas (H2) and oxygen gas (O2) by PEM electrolysis production process, without the need for 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, petcock, RDF, fuel-oil, among others), and reducing the release of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.
