What is gas?

Such gases, referred to as clean energy, and their usage, in comparison with other fuels such as petroleum and coal, can reduce emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulfur oxides (SOx), etc., and are regarded as the most environmentally friendly energy.

Eneco Holdings success in developing water and catalyst reaction technology

Birth of next generation new eco gas "Eneco Gas"

Utilizing a completely different technology and a uniquely developed catalyst, we have succeeded in generating the Eneco gas using water.

Water is added into a glass bottle containing the catalyst, generating gas which is then ignited.

Experiment that the generated Eneco Gas is fed into a generator that is used to power other devices.

Successfully generating New eco gas (Eneco Gas) by "producing gas from water"

Eneco Gas generation,  principle of development

Eneco Gas is generated by application of water electrolysis. For general water electrolysis, hydrogen and oxygen are isolated and taken out separately, however, Eneco developed technology extracts both as a gas mixture. This generated gas is commonly called Oxyhydrogen gas, Brown gas or HHO gas. Although considered better to mix the separated oxygen and hydrogen at time of combustion, hydrogen tends to leak out if contained in a metal bottle. Oxyhydrogen gas, however, will not leak. It is not a simple bond but a special bond state at the molecular level.

 

Mechanism of Eneco Gas combustion

Eneco Gas generated by mixing oxygen and hydrogen at 1:2 can be handled safely without explosion because the H2O molecule decomposes into H2 and O. When Eneco Gas is ignited, passing your hand over the flame will not burn or feel hot. However, when the flame touches an iron plate, the plate will quickly melt and be cut through.

Why is this? It is because the flame is an implosion not an explosion. As a result, when the gas is ignited, it burns and the surrounded area is vacated through a shift from a volume of gas to a volume of liquid, a liquid water phase. Therefore, even if your hand is brought close to the flame, you do not feel heat, neither does it burn. Eneco Gas has a characteristic that does not waste such highly concentrated energy.

Eneco Gas characteristic that temperature changes freely according to substance

If you put a coin made of nickel into the flame of a regular acetylene gas burner, it turns red but does not melt. But if you put the same coin into the flame of an oxyhydrogen burner, it makes a hole in about 5 to 6 seconds. In comparison, tungsten, with a melting point of 3,422℃, will turn red and start to melt in about 15 seconds with the oxyhydrogen burner.  This means that the flame of the oxyhydrogen gas radiates at least 3,422℃. When the tungsten begins to evaporate the flame reaches temperatures over 5,000℃ to 6,000℃. However, the temperature of the oxyhydrogen gas flame is very low reaching only 280℃. That is to say, the flame has a very curious characteristic of changing its temperature freely depending on the substance of the object.

We will release a video on new technology to generate Eneco Gas by using "water" and "our uniquely developed catalyst".




We have succeeded in developing the “Eneco PLASMA R Hydrogen Gas”

Eneco PLASMA R Hydrogen Gas

Through the use of the next-generation eco gas generator "Eneco PLASMA R Hydrogen Gas", we have succeeded in development of Eneco gases (oxyhydrogen gas, pure hydrogen gas), which can be an alternative to commonly used gases such as natural and LPG gases. This technology effectively generates both "hydrogen oxygen gas" and "pure hydrogen gas" at low energy and low temperature reaction by employing our uniquely developed catalyst that consists of tap water and waste. Since this fuel is generated from water, it takes us one step closer to securing lasting energy sources without consuming resources. The cost can also be reduced by about 50% compared with conventional gas, realizing significant reduction on the environmental load (CO2, NOX, SOX, PM). It is a new energy gas comparable to LPG, natural gas and shale gas.

Characteristics: ・About 2.4 tons of gas can be generated per day
・Nearly infinite amount of gas can be generated in one day by expanding the equipment in response to the user's request (we take customized orders)
・Infrastructure is almost unnecessary
・Electricity cost is little as gas is generated naturally without electrolysis
Applications: ・Industrial (for burners)
・For boilers (steam generation/hot water)
・For generators (for small and large)
・For ships
※Depending on the intended use of the generated gas, it may require separate confirmation for technical details
