Existing Hydrogen market*
From a practical perspective, the market is infinite if Hydrogen can be priced competitively. HydroStar’s market opportunities start by replacing trucked delivery bottles of hydrogen with on-site production systems to provide controlled on-demand hydrogen. After this the target is then pipeline or on-site production followed by industrial users – refineries etc.

50% of all hydrogen produced today is used in the manufacturing of ammonia for fertilizer and other industrial and chemical uses.
- Only electrolysis that can produce Hydrogen without generating CO2
- Onsite HydroStar electrolysis systems, HERO are cost competitive with onsite hydrogen steam methane reforming by leveraging low cost power
- Small quantities of gas (5 bottles per day) require expensive delivery systems that represent the majority of the delivered cost.
