Saving the planet by splitting a molecule

We make green hydrogen

Blackstone Green Energy has developed a patent-pending method for producing and distributing green hydrogen. Our method is based on well-known and firmly established scientific principles of zinc hydrolysis. The production and distribution processes are the subject of two patent-pending applications for production and distribution with the United States Patent & Trademark Office.

As shown in the diagram at right:

[1] The process begins at the Blackstone zinc deposit in southwest Idaho. Raw ore is ground to -200 mesh and then fumed at the property. When water is injected into the vapors, the hydrolytic reaction creates hydrogen and zinc oxide as a byproduct of the reaction. Second-stage firing of the residual calcine produces commercially valuable matte bullion of the property’s other primary minerals: copper, silver, lead, and gold.

[2] After hydrolysis is complete, the zinc oxide is shipped from the Blackstone property to a solar-powered central plant for dissociation to zinc powder.

[3] Following dissociation, the zinc powder is shipped to individual hydrogen dispensing stations equipped with Blackstone-method hydrolysis reactors. The reactors convert zinc powder into a combination of green hydrogen and zinc oxide.

[4] Zinc oxide is then shipped back to the central dissociation plant where it is converted to zinc powder and the process begins anew, allowing the initial charge of zinc powder to be reused multiple times.

Advantages of the Blackstone Method

  • Operates entirely closed-circuit
  • Burns no fossil fuels
  • Eliminates toxic emissions
  • Production costs ≤ $1.00 (USD)/kg hydrogen
  • Reduces the cost and footprint of dispensary build-outs
  • Eliminates the need for wind, solar, or grid-generated power to produce green hydrogen
  • Hydrogen-compatible ore comes from our federally patented 100-acre zinc deposit in southwest Idaho
  • Yields a matte bullion byproduct of commercially valuable copper, lead, silver, and gold
