Jule Verne hydrogen

“Yes, my friends, I believe that water will one day be employed as fuel, that hydrogen and oxygen which constitute it, used singly or together, will furnish an inexhaustible source of heat and light, of an intensity of which coal is not capable.”

Jules Verne – The Mysterious Island (1874) – Part 2, Chapitre 11

And what if water was tomorrow’s fuel?

Following Jules Verne’s inspiration, Bulane is developping a technology aiming to offer applications according to the principle of electrolysis, this in partnership with some of the largest research centers.

By creating a combustible gas from water and electricity and by developping professional applications, in particular in the field of flame brazing, Bulane is proving to this day the sustainability of hydrogen solutions, destined to a promising future.

Electrolysis : Extract the hydrogen and the oxygen present in water

Electrolysis of water is a process discovered in 1800 which consists in decomposing water in gaseous hydrogen and oxygen.

This electrochemical reaction is generated by the passage of an electric current between two electrodes immerged in a saline solution.
This solution, called « electrolyte », is rendered conductive through potassium hydroxide.

The electric current forced between the two electrodes generate an emission of hydrogen at the surface of the cathode and of oxygen at the surface of the anode.

These two gases, ingeniously mixed, allow us to obtain a clean combustible adapted to the production of a high performing flame.

Bulane’s technological contribution allows to offer functional applications, reliable and safe to this process.

Find out more about hydrogen

 

Hydrogen is the atom placed in first position in the periodic table. It is the simplest one: a nucleus made out of 1 proton, and one peripheric electron.

Thus, it is the lightest atom, a lot lighter than air. This quality allows it to diffuse very rapidly, which is a very favorable quality for the safety of its usage.

Some general characteristics about hydrogen:

– It is the only combustible without carbons, so it doesn’t produce CO2 during combustion,

– It is very a bundant on Earth, in a molecular form (water, hydrocarbons) and practically inexistant in its natural form as an atom,

– It is non-toxic,

– The calorific value of hydrogen is the highest of all existing combustibles: this explains the interest that energy experts find in it.
