Enfo Servicehas accepted the challenge: the goal of producing hydrogen in a clean way, adopting and developing new technologies
Enfo Service believes in a sustainable approach to the use of our planet’s resources, and we cannot speak of an energy challenge without speaking of the use and production of hydrogen, a key energy vector in the global transition towards clean energy.
BUT WHAY IS THE HYDROGEN?
A fuel with a large energy density. The problem is that it is very difficult to produce. Enfo Service has accepted the challenge and has the aim of producing hydrogen in a clean way, developing new technologies.
HOW DOES A SYSTEM THAT PRODUCE HYDROGEN IN A SUSTAINABLE WAY WORK
The heart is the electrolyser, or electrolytic cell, where the separation of water into its constituent elements, hydrogen and oxygen, takes place. The water is placed in contact with two electrodes, a positively charged anode and a negatively charged cathode. Electric current dissociates molecules into hydrogen ions H+ and hydroxide ions OH-. At the cathode, the hydrogen ions acquire electrons in a reduction reaction and become hydrogen gas. At the anode, hydroxide ions give up electrons in an oxidation reduction, leading to the formation of oxygen. If the electrolytic cell is placed near a renewable source plant, part of the electricity production can be used to power it. In this way the hydrogen produced performs the function of a chemical “storage”, which can be used when needed.
