Our Chemistry

As shown in the cell diagram below, our system consists of three main components: an activated aluminum anode; an aqueous alkaline electrolyte; and a hydrogen-evolving cathode. Note the injection of water as an oxidizer into the system, and the removal of the nontoxic aluminum hydroxide and hydrogen gas byproducts. This mass transfer can be done continuously or intermittently. The three basic components of this cell are described in greater detail below.
