The patented McAlister HydroCarbon Splitter is a revolutionary technology that uses anaerobic thermal dissociation of organic substances such as Renewable Methane (CH4) or Natural Gas to separate Hydrogen and Carbon.

Metrol ® is an energy-dense liquid at ambient room temperature and pressure that delivers hydrogen, with comparable energy produced by gasoline or diesel fuel. Such hydrogen can be used in fuel cells and more than 4 billion existing engines, boilers, and furnaces to actually clean the air during operation.

100 lbs of natural gas or renewable methane is sold and delivered by existing pipelines throughout North America by long-term contracts for less than $10. The HydroCarbon Splitter processes 100 lbs of natural gas or methane into 25 lbs of Hydrogen to replace 12 gallons of gasoline and 75 lbs of Durable Carbon, which is worth more than $200.

Sustainable economic development can be achieved by utilizing such Durable Carbon to reinforce equipment to convert solar, wind, moving water, or geothermal energy into hundreds of times more electricity, hydrogen, or heat every year (for decades) compared to burning such carbon in a natural gas-fueled furnace, boiler, gas turbine, piston engine or power plant.

The HydroCarbon Splitter Technology consists of issued patents, patent applications with a “patent pending” status, and certain trade secrets in the areas of hydrogen harvesting, carbon harvesting, fuel production, and carbon durable products manufacturing. The HydroCarbon Splitter enables the co-production of hydrogen and durable carbon.

Greater profits can be achieved by not burning carbon, but instead by harvesting carbon and converting it into a solid (i.e., carbon fiber, graphene, and/or nanotubes) that can be used for manufacturing durable equipment and goods.

This approach optimizes continuous value expansion through durable carbon uses as compared to one-time value by burning. In this way, the vast Natural Gas reserves can increase profitability of the petroleum industry with zero-emissions technology.

Carbon Is Too Profitable To Burn

Carbon is captured and transformed into an economic asset (carbon fiber) for manufacturing.

McAlister’s hydrogen-carbon production process provides an exponential multiplier of economic and environmental values. As a result, this new technology enables sustainable co-production of low-cost hydrogen and durable carbon.

The carbon can reinforce equipment to convert solar, wind, moving water and geothermal energy into far more electricity, hydrogen and heat compared to burning such carbon one time. Carbon is prevented from forming harmful pollutants by becoming a sustainable energy conversion economic asset.

Thus for every $1.00 of pipeline delivered methane we can enable profitable production of hydrogen and durable carbon resulting in gross income of $8.00 or more.

Hydrogen has long been recognized as a vitally important resource for clean energy. What has not been recognized is the economic opportunity presented by “waste” carbon. Solving mass-scale production of hydrogen from hydro-carbon feedstock requires accounting for both components: hydrogen and carbon.

Economic & Environmental Values

Lower cost, zero-emissions alternative for fuel production and carbon products manufacturing.

The HydroCarbon Splitter produces hydrogen from petroleum (especially plentiful Natural Gas) at a lower cost than the cost of gasoline or diesel fuel. It is positioned in the marketplace as a zero-emissions alternative to steam reformation of Natural Gas for hydrogen production.

Carbon fiber can be produced from this same process at a lower cost than current production methods. An immense variety of manufactured products in transportation, construction, power generation, agriculture, aerospace, and more, can be supported by this new durable carbon revolution.

Illustratively 50 lb of renewable or fossil methane can typically be delivered by pipeline for about $1.00 to $5.00 and burned to produce one million BTUs (heat / work value) and about 135 lbs of CO2 (emissions by-product). However, a much better outcome is achieved by thermal dissociation of 50 lbs of methane into 37 lbs of durable carbon goods and 13 lbs of hydrogen. Both the durable carbon and the hydrogen are provided as economic values and the carbon is prevented from producing local pollution and causing global climate change damages.

  • The 13 lbs of hydrogen can replace 6 gallons of gasoline. For transportation, storage, and user convenience the 13 lbs of hydrogen can be combined with atmospheric nitrogen and carbon dioxide to produce net-hydrogen Metrol™ Hydrogen liquid fuel to replace 6 gallons of gasoline for at least $3.00 gross income.
  • The 37 lbs of carbon can be used to reinforce equipment that is stronger than steel and lighter than aluminum for at least $37.00 gross income.
  • Thus less than $1.00 for pipeline delivered methane can enable profitable production of hydrogen and durable carbon for gross income of $8.00 or more.

Such carbon can reinforce equipment to convert solar, wind, moving water or geothermal energy into hundreds of times more electricity and hydrogen each year (for decades) compared to burning such carbon one time. This illustrates the base multiplier of value of the Metrol™ Hydrogen Fuel production process.
