Hydrogen Energy

Ecological Technologies Ltd is dedicated to advancing the development of hydrogen technology to reduce emissions and promote sustainable energy solutions. Our focus is on researching and developing hydrogen for energy storage and small-scale engine applications, with potential applications in the power generation and other industries.

One of the most promising uses for hydrogen engines is in the marine industry, where it can provide efficient and emission-free power for yachts and boats. As the technology advances, it also holds potential for use in aviation.

We understand that research and development of hydrogen technology is complex, costly, and time-consuming, but the need to reduce pollutants created by traditional fuel vehicles is a powerful motivator to pursue cleaner energy alternatives. We are aware of the efforts made by organizations like The Hydrogen Council and Japan Hydrogen Mobility (JHyM) which are composed of multinational companies such as Shell, General Motors, Honda, Toyota, Total, BMW, Daimler, Audi, Hyundai, Kawasaki and others. Their goal is to accelerate the commercial viability of hydrogen fuel cell engines and invest billions of dollars in the next few years to power millions of cars and trucks in the next 8 years. These organizations also working on building hydrogen stations and infrastructure.

Ecological Technologies Limited is researching hydrogen energy for ships, cars and trains to increase the sustainability of our planet: its oceans and seas, the land and the soil, and most importantly, its future.

Hydrogen energy involves the use of hydrogen and/or hydrogen-containing compounds to generate energy to be supplied to all practical uses needed with high energy efficiency.

For our shareholders and investors, we are committed to our values today and in the future: reliability, responsibility, transparency and innovative strength. 

What can Hydrogen energy achieve?

In the midst of the climate crisis, the demand for decarbonisation across transport industries has grown.

Hydrogen-Powered Drones

Hydrogen energy drones are a type of drone that is powered by hydrogen fuel cells. They come in many different sizes and are capable of delivering a wide range of items, including medical devices such as automatic external defibrillators (AEDs), food and water, and other important items. These drones are useful for delivering supplies to remote areas, for responding to emergency situations, and for carrying out other tasks that require a quick and efficient delivery. With their ability to fly for extended periods of time without needing to be recharged, hydrogen energy drones are becoming an increasingly popular choice for a variety of applications.

Hydrogen-Powered Trains

In order for hydrogen power to be truly sustainable, other methods of producing it that don’t rely on fossil fuels would need to become mainstream.

Electrolysis creates hydrogen by separating oxygen from water using an electric current. That current can be created using energy from renewable energy sources, but it has yet to be done outside of small test demonstrations. In order to be a truly green form of travel, the hydrogen would need to be created and stored using renewable energy sources, like off-shore wind farms and solar grids, rather than fossil fuels.

There are benefits to passengers too. Hydrogen-powered trains, like electric trains, are also incredibly quiet compared to their diesel counterparts. And unlike electric trains, they are more resilient to network-wide disruption.  A hydrogen powered train could switch over to its fuel cells if the electricity lines went down, for example.

Hydrogen-Powered Cars

All around the world, governments are implementing policies to promote electric vehicles to reduce oil consumption, climate-related emissions, and improve local air quality. Most of the attention has been dedicated to plug-in electric vehicles.

The secret of the hydrogen fuel cell-powered vehicle lies in its battery, which is able to generate electricity through a chemical reaction between oxygen and hydrogen.

Hydrogen cars are electric vehicles that are powered by a fuel cell supplied with dihydrogen (H2). The gas, stored under pressure in dedicated tanks, comes into contact with the dioxygen (O2) which is contained in the surrounding air inside the cell. An oxidation reaction takes place here, producing electricity and water vapor (H2O).

Hydrogen-Powered Ships

Marine transport emits 940 million tonnes of CO2 annually and is responsible for 2.5 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions, thanks to the dirty oil and diesel that’s burned for propulsion. Ecological Technologies Limited will run ships powered by hydrogen energy and emitting only clean water in its wake, whilst processing PVC plastic granules from the recycled plastics that have been collected worldwide.

Developers across the world are for the first time testing the use of hydrogen to power ships as the maritime industry races to find technologies to cut emissions and confidence grows the fuel is safe to use commercially.

To reach goals for the shipping industry set by the United Nations, industry leaders say the first net-zero ships must enter the global fleet by 2030. Ships powered by green hydrogen could help meet the target.

Made from electrolysis to split water into hydrogen and oxygen using electricity from renewable energy, green hydrogen is emissions free.
