There’s an upstart called Solar Hydrogen Trends (SHT) from Menlo Park, close to Facebook headquarters, that claims to have a hydrogen generation device that produces so much hydrogen it’s unbelievable. The device, which weighs about 100 kg, is known as a Symphony device because of the symphony of processes involved in producing the hydrogen. It generates as much as 7 kg of hydrogen every hour at 93% purity using some proprietary form of water electrolysis. This is an output of more than 220 KWh of chemical energy from an input of just 400 Wh of electricity; making an amazing COP of over 500. SHT say they actually discovered the hydrogen generation phenomena by mistake while working on a system to recover precious metals.
The input power requirement is so low that just 2 solar panels costing roughly $200 can power the symphony device for life.
The most surprising thing about this technology is it converts 98% of water to hydrogen, signifying a type of nuclear reaction is taking place. The technology is incredible because in one day, just 100 symphony devices can make enough hydrogen to power 6 000 cars for an entire month, so definitely these devices can help every country in the world become self-sufficient in their energy, even more so when LENR is taken into account as a means of energy generation.
The device was independently tested by 2 entities, TRC Solutions & AirKinetics, both of whom confirmed SHTs claims. Recently SHT presented at a Defence Energy conference, which shows they have a certain level of seriousness.
The question I ask is this: Corporations and Universities all over the world are struggling to create an efficient & cost effective electrolysis process for hydrogen production, yet SHT seems to have already accomplished such a feat. Why not start selling the Symphony devices all over the world or at the very least license the tech to other companies that are already in the business of making electrolyzers. SHT seems more interested in telling everybody how marvelous their technology is instead of getting it on the shelves at Walmart. But hopefully this will change soon. They say they’re looking for funding for a manufacturing facility but with the kind of results they’re getting I don’t see why it would take this long to get any funding at all, considering all the venture capital firms interested in this kind of tech. On top of that, they can simply get a loan from the bank, make one device, sell it for $1 million, pay back the bank, make a hundred more device, and so forth.
SHT also thinks the best way to go about the business is through government consortiums inorder to avoid worldwide market crushes, i.e. nations coming together to discuss the symphony device. This is total hogwash coz geopolitics is none of SHT’s business really.
