New Technology for Generating Hydrogen from Water at the Lowest Cost in the World
There are several different methods for generating hydrogen.
The most ideal method is said to be generating hydrogen from water.
However, as many researchers have discovered, in practice it is difficult to generate hydrogen from water.
In order to generate hydrogen from water, we must break the bonds between hydrogen molecules and oxygen molecules.
Since these bonds are very strong, a large amount of energy, and therefore a high cost, is required to generate hydrogen.
If it were possible to do this efficiently at low cost, hydrogen could become one of our energy resources in the future.
Development of the Ideal Technology for Generating Hydrogen Energy
We have developed the ideal technology.
This technology can be used to generate hydrogen simply by adding either aluminum or magnesium to functional water.
Two liters of hydrogen can be generated for each gram of aluminum, while each gram of magnesium will generate 3.3 liters of hydrogen.
This will allow the production of 1kwh of electricity at a low cost of approximately 15 yen (calculated based on the use of unused aluminum powder).
This cost can be reduced even further by using recycled aluminum cans.
The experiment in the following video shows how quickly and easily hydrogen can be generated with this technology.

Why is hydrogen generated?
The bonds of hydrogen molecules in functional water are easily broken, and the reaction with either aluminum or magnesium produces a large volume of hydrogen.
Functional water is produced by simply passing tap water through an apparatus that contains natural minerals.
Elaborate facilities and laboratories are not required.
Since functional water can be produced simply by passing tap water through an apparatus that contains natural minerals, there is no energy cost.
