(H2), is the most abundant element in the universe found
in the air at concentrations of about 0.0001%. It is
the simplest element known to exist, having only one
proton and one electron.
in the atmosphere, and is lighter then air. It is only
found as a compound form with other elements. It is
not found naturally on earth alone and must be manufactured.
H2 is odorless,
tasteless, nontoxic and almost invisible, (it burns
with a pale blue flame). It is flammable and as a gas
dissipates quickly. Hydrogen becomes a liquid when at
a boiling of -423 F (-253 C). With the exception of
helium, all other gases become solid at this temperature.
It is also
renewable and efficient source of energy. Hydrogen produces
zero emissions because it combusts to produce only water.
This gives it enormous potential as a gas for fuel.
be reproduced as a by-product of a chemical process,
(General Hydrogen uses the by-product method), or from
a number of other sources.
