We have developed a patented recipe to manufacture a proprietary silicon based nano-powder. We call it Silicon Fuel (or Si Fuel). It comes in the form of grey tablets.

Si Fuel generates hydrogen at room temperature when it is mixed with water inside cartridge, which is a self-contained canister with water and Si Fuel inside.

Si Fuel can be stored for a long time. Dry Si Fuel can be safely delivered in vacuum sealed packages and always be ready for use on site and on demand wherever water is available.

Si Fuel becomes a source of hydrogen for generating electricity with a hydrogen fuel cell. Like a battery it is characterised by its energy density. The energy density of Si Fuel mixed with water is 750Wh/kg which is more than 3 times better than the state-of-the-art Li-ion battery.

For storage and transportation purposes the energy density of dry Si Fuel gets as high as 1,700Wh/kg, with water being added later.

Total system energy density including the fuel cell depends on the overall system weight. The higher the system weight, the greater the advantage of Si Fuel. Please speak to us for precise system modelling.
