A number of industrial chemical processes produce hydrogen as a by-product; while some efforts are made to use this by-product, often the hydrogen is simply vented or co-burned with other hydrocarbon gases for steam raising for on-site electrical power.

 

Whilst there is no direct environmental consequence of venting hydrogen, there is an indirect cost: the by-product could have been used to generate clean power in place of electricity from fossil fuels, cutting both emissions and site operating costs.

 

The HydroX-Cell (L) fuel cell has a particular benefit over other fuel cell due to its liquid electrolyte and excellent fuel tolerance to industrial hydrogen. This is advantageous when compared to the high purity Hydrogen often associated with fuel cells.
