In an attempt to improve the range of Unmanned Undersea Vehicles (UUVs), the alternative
energy company AlumiFuel Power Inc, (API) researching on behalf of the US Navy, into
possible use of hydrogen generation using steam and aluminum. This method produces the gas
using aluminum and steam (water) in a controlled exothermic reaction to producing hydrogen
gas, water and aluminum oxide. The rate of hydrogen emitted is simply controlled by the supply
of steam reacting with the aluminum which can be fed straight to a fuel cell or combustion
engine. [More]
