see the point of mixing pure hydrogen with carbon ?? hydrogen alone could be used as a fuel ?
"HHO Gas" is just an ignorant take on hydrolysis, which has been around for over a century. The idea of this has multiple benefits. 1 being that
solar energy collection is sometimes much more efficient in places that are not accessible or scarcely populated. If there is a solar array in the
desert, the transportation of electrical load over long distances makes it nearly infeasible. Although, there are operations in the emirates that are
using HVDC to get around this, typical AC infrastructure cannot handle load transfer over long distance without losing a major amount of energy in the
form of heat. The normal grid will see a 4-12% loss getting to consumers homes. (Based off recollection) So by being able to store it in a easily
handled form of fuel, such as this, it has many benefits. Especially if the energy loss in hydrolysis and the subsequent reaction, is made up by the
added energy collection of a solar array in places normally considered unfeasible (due to load transfer).
2, would be that hydrogen is horrible to store, transfer, and in most cases use. Although, 2 is kind of eliminated by the simple fact that hydrogen
has no economically sustainable method of synthesis right now. It's simply used in pet projects by people who think it somehow is going to usher in a
'green' economy, while making little practical sense.
