Hydrogen, (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.
Hydrogen rises 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.
Hydrogen can be reproduced as a by-product of a chemical process, (General Hydrogen uses the by-product method), or from a number of other sources.
