Market Segments
  • H2 Generation Technologies/Methods
  • H2 Storage and Distribution
  • Users (Fuel cell companies, vehicular, military, weather balloons, etc

The Hydrogen Economy
    Public Perception: “H2 Economy” = Automotive applications
  • Technical obstacles (safety, storage, distribution) have been overcome to enable rapid deployment
  • Adoption has been slower than anticipated
    What must happen to commercialize automotive applications?
  • Volume manufacturing, lower cost and increased reliability of H2 Fuel Cells
  • Increased use of fuel cells by automakers
  • New fuel distribution infrastructure (Bulk H2 production plants near dispersed customers, e.g. service stations.

Limited public awareness of substantial and growing pre-automotive markets being driven by early adopters
  • H2 fuel cells for backup, portable and auxiliary power applications
  • Deliver longer run times, lower emissions, cheaper operations than present batter, genset, diesel and other techniques.

How API/Alumifuel Impacts the Hydrogen Economy
    Economics of supply and demand and push for ‘green’ energy are driving hydrogen industry to evolve on many scales for many applications
  • Increased demand for pre-automotive fuel cells will decrease the cost of components and create viable supplier base for automotive fuel cells.
  • Will lead to commercialization of automotive fuel cell applications by -2020

API in the forefront of transition to the hydrogen economy
  • Our technology and products will help accelerate the transition
  • Our Sweet Spot applications (backup, portable, auxilar and remote power) will facilitate increased usage and capability of hydrogen fuel cells.
  • We will leverage our cheaper logistics chain to replace delivery of har to handle K cylinders for H2 Storage.

API/Alumifuel’s unique non-fuel cell applications will facilitate early market entry and solid source of revenue while fuel cell applications mature.
  • Our superheated steam and H2 will drive turbines for UUVs and Auxiliary Power Units
  • Our H2 Gas can easily inflate weather balloons
  • Our Chemical reaction fuels flameless heaters
  • API/Alumifuel has significant differentiators in performance, adaptability and cost effectiveness in our target market applications

Hydrogen Safety
  • Common misconception that H2 gas is inherently volatile and unsafe
  • H2 Gas is actually safer then gasoline and as safe as natural gas.
  • When ignited, burns quickly with low heat, non-luminous highly directional flame
  • Very unlikely to explode

1937 Hindenburg disaster is widely misunderstood
  • No explosion and nobody aboard was kissed by an H2 fire.
  • The 35% of people who died were killed by jumping or from burning diesel oil, cloth canoly and debris.
  • The 65% of the people who survived rode the dirigible down with clear H2 Flames swirling around them harmlessly.
