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.
