Asemblon is a surface molecular engineering company headquartered in the Seattle, Washington area. Asemblon hold a US Patent with foreign patents pending for a method for putting hydrogen onto and taking it off of an organic molecule. Uses for this technology are very broad. Because Asemblon focuses on developing technologies, we seek partners to commercialize the opportunities seen throughout this presentation. You are invited to contact us to discuss ways in which we might work together.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has forecasted that the Automotive market (10.71 quads) can be fully supplied with hydrogen produced from a number of alternative energy sources. However, the question still remains, how can the hydrogen be collected, stored and transported?
The key points about the HYDRNOL Carrier technology are that hydrogen can be stored safely and economically locked onto a liquid matrix: When some of the hydrogen is removed, a derivative molecular structure is formed that can be separated from the hydrogen and recycled 100 times or more. Since the HYDRNOL Carrier is liquid over a wide temperature range, it can be handled using the same type of infrastructure as gasoline or diesel. The substantial cost of compressing or liquefying hydrogen gas can be avoided entirely.
Using the DOE’s data, Asemblon prepared this chart to show how HYDRNOL compares to other hydrogen storage technologies.This chart shows both the weight and volume scales employed by the DOE.Note that cryogenic compressed hydrogen (which is still in its infancy) barely exceeds the DOE’s 2010 Goal.
These three graphs provide another perspective on comparative hydrogen storage. Of course, each method has its particular advantages and disadvantages. Overall: HYDRNOL provides a physically, small relatively lightweight storage methods that has modest energy costs related to discharge and recharge. In fact, as the technology develops, HYDRNOL may see significant reduction in energy costs in associate with waste heat management systems.
