What is MHD Hydrogen?

One Scientific’s technologies provide a cost effective method to convert superheated steam into hydrogen and oxygen. The resulting gases can be used to manufacture more valuable chemicals and hydrogen for fuel cells used in transportation and stationary power.

One Scientific’s MHD Reactor presents the first application of producing hydrogen and oxygen atoms from steam by making use of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD). One Scientific’s Cyclonic Gas Separator presents the first application of cyclonic gas separation based on the molecular weight of the gas.

OSI technologies can replace costly delivered gaseous or liquid hydrogen, capital inefficient small-scale reforming, and expensive electrolysis resulting in significant advantages over conventional technologies.

What are the benefits?

  • Lowers onsite hydrogen production cost by up to 65% versus other competitive alternatives

  • Onsite generation eliminates expensive hydrogen transportation costs

  • Low cost modular process & small footprint has operating costs equivalent to large scale reforming but is more capital efficient

  • More energy-efficient and lower capital cost than electrolysis

  • Deionized water/superheated steam feedstock produces no CO2 or other air emissions

  • Scalable from 10,000 scf/d to over 1 million scf/d

  • Cyclonic gas separation is lower cost than expensive pressure swing adsorption (PSA) and achieves purity greater than 99%.
