E.Hy. Claims Autonomous Hydrogen Energy System
Eng. Marco Bertelli has patented an innovative hydrogen cell, with two titanium plates, which allows us to have energy at very low cost and to free ourselves from electricity and gas bills for heating. He built a plant in Pisa that produces and sells a device called HYDRO G which contains the cell that produces hydrogen. Its heat is produced that turns a turbine and from it the water is heated and electricity is obtained in direct current with a dynamo, which charges two 48 volt batteries of 100 amperes which act as a buffer, and from there the direct current is passed to an inverter which gives the alternating current 220 volts. It works alone without connections to the electricity or gas network. The machine costs 9,500 euros in the basic model. To which must be added a maintenance contract of 600 euros a year which includes the topping up of distilled water and ethanol. 37 kW unit reportedly consumes only 40 litres of distilled water and two litres of bioethanol per year.
According to patents 1, 2 and datasheet it's sorta LENR reactor. The core of it is a steel cylinder with two close 5 kg plates of perforated titanium - one anode and the other catode which are exposed to hydrogen (not pure but syngas from bioethanol and water) inside. Hydrogen goes into the space between these two plates and releases ultraviolet rays (?) and high temperature. This reaction raises temperature of reactor to 600-700 g Celsius. A pump at 80 bar pressure water inside the cylinder is converted to a steam which goes to a ceramic turbine powering dynamo charging two large batteries (100 ampere at 12 volts) which then power an inverter (220 volt for Italy). Unutilized heat of the steam is used to heat a boiler to get hot water for the house use. Eng. Marco Bertelli says he already has 20,000 orders in his portfolio. The machine can be seen in operation in the Pisa plant.
