The National Hydrogen Foundation.org has undertaken a global strategy of renewable energy development. This was at least partly in response to the critical need of many under-developed countries that can no longer afford importing carbon-based fuels. Since that time, we have been selecting partners and technology around the globe to execute a definitive global strategy of renewable energy development.
NHF is not seeking the big bang theory, but rather a measured progression into proven technology as well as harnessing the advantages of new emerging research.
NHF works closely with its sponsor, Protium Energy, LLC to utilize a decision matrix for global project selection based at least in part on the sale of power under a long term power purchase agreement..
Currently the NHF, Protium Energy and its subsidiaries have concentrated development efforts and analysis in the U.S. and Caribbean.
We are working to combine systems such as trash, sewage, waste water, and electricity, by applying new emerging technologies such as Pyrolytic Steam Reforming Gasification, hydrogen fuel cells, wind ,solar ,bio-diesel and other systems.
By combining these technologies, greater efficiencies are obtained, and waste sources become feedstock for renewable energy equipment. By using these combined applications in new developments and retrofitting existing utility locations with renewable energy equipment and strategies, infrastructure becomes a generator and distributor for local renewable energy to the community.
Today the NHF announced the commercialization of the Protium Gasification System. Units are available from 300KW to 100MW. This system may use any feedstock including Organic material, Tires, Coal, MSW and produce HIGH BTU synthesis gas for use in diesel or heavy fuel engines converted for duel fuel application.
1. Protium Gasification System
2. Gas Cleaning System with ZERO tars or particulates, coal applications include Sulfer removal
3. Conversion of standard diesel engines for use in duel fuel mode
4. In addition to the gas production, our unit will produce up to 70% by weight of Pyrolysis oil as a direct replacement for HFO engines
Optional equipment include :
a. Heat Exchanger systems for combined cycle applications
b. System can be offered as a portable unit
Test data has shown a 40% reduction in HFO fuel on 8MW 18V32 Wartsila engines

The Chairman of Research and Development,
Dr. Scott Cramton has led the department into the new millennia with the single goal of reducing fuel consumption and the carbon foot prints of all hydro-carbon burning equipment. "For any new technology to be implemented, it must be an economically feasible addition to the current infra-structure."
Hydrogen is the lightest and most common of elements. It is found everywhere in nature, in water and in many compounds. When properly harnessed, it can provide a safe, clean and unlimited supply of energy for all of the world's basic energy needs. Experts agree that an alternate source of energy to the world's limited supply of oil and natural gas is a national imperative.
Making hydrogen a viable and practical means of energy for wide-spread use requires much in the way of research and scientific exploration. Researchers everywhere are looking for safer, more efficient ways of producing and storing hydrogen while manufacturers and engineers are considering the infrastructure needed for handling and transporting such a source.
The NHFis taking a leadership role in the hydrogen research on a National, Regional and International level. The National Hydrogen Lab provides a place where industrial and academic partners can collaborate on research and devlopment projects that will benefit mankind.
The NHF provides an environment where collaborative efforts result in sustainable solutions for this generation as well as those in the future.
