ACTA’s water electrolyser business "ahead of expectations"
Production, Aug 02 2011 (The Hydrogen Journal)
- Italian "clean energy" company ACTA reports that its hydrogen generator business line is "developing ahead of expectations". The company produces a 1m3 unit, using electricity to generate hydrogen, designed to be used for providing back-up power and power for residential units.
The company is developing commercial partnerships with system integrators and electrolyser manufacturers, it says.
It expects "commercial production" of the stack and electrolyser units in the fourth quarter of 2011.
The Company is currently reviewing the expansion of its manufacturing facilities, scheduled for late 2011 to early 2012.
The company will also do further development on a product to enrich diesel (on trucks) by adding hydrogen to it, after the engine tests did not produce results in line with the initial tests. It works together with an ethanol reformer unit (reforming ethanol to make large quantities of hydrogen). The testing was done in Brazil, where there are large amounts of ethanol available.
The company is also involved in building solar plants, but it says sales have been impacted by regulatory uncertainty.
