Hydro Environmental Resources, Inc. (HERI) Announces Independent Third Party Testing and Analysis of ECHFR

26 Aug, 2002, 01:00 ET from Hydro Environmental Resources, Inc.

    VANCOUVER, Wash., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Mr. David Rosenberg,
 Chief Executive Officer made the following statement, "On August 14, 2002,
 HERI staff took the recently repackaged industrial Electrochem Hydrogen Fuel
 Reactor (ECHFR) to FST Consulting International, Inc. in Hillsboro, Oregon for
 independent third party testing and analysis.   The purpose of this analysis
 was to certify the purity of hydrogen gas being produced by HERI's industrial
 grade ECHFR."
     Dr. Michael Lysaght, Chief Science Officer stated, "Sample measurements
 were taken periodically over a period of several hours with hydrogen gas
 purity improving from a low of 99.99% to a high of 99.9992% during the course
 of the reaction.  It should be noted here that this unit was an industrial
 configuration of the ECHFR and not fully optimized for gas purity.  HERI is
 currently developing a high-purity stainless steel reactor that is expected to
 improve hydrogen purity to the six nines purity level.  This latest design of
 the ECHFR will address emerging fuel cell technologies and the semiconductor
 industry where high purity hydrogen gas is a requirement.  Additional
 information will be posted on the HERI website (www.hydrogenerate.com) after
 the initial testing phase."  He further stated that, "It has long been HERI's
 mission to produce the highest purity hydrogen gas as inexpensively as
 possible.  The FST report details the purity of the hydrogen gas effluent as a
 function of time while the HERI Lab Report provides a cost analysis for the
 reaction described in the FST report."  Dr Lysaght, provided the following
 results from FST's analysis of the ECHFR:
 
 
     Component                               Description             Cost
 
     A      8 oz consumable A @ approximately $ 0.70 lb.            $0.35
     B     12 oz consumable B @ approximately $ 0.40 lb.            $0.30
     C                                1.5 gal water base       negligible
     D                                  1.05 oz catalyst     no recurring
                                                                    costs
 
 
     Total cost of reactants                  $0.65
     Cubic feet hydrogen gas produced         10.78
     Cost per cu. ft. of hydrogen gas         $0.06
 
 
     Dr. Lysaght noted that the "detailed figures do no include packaging costs
 and will vary depending on application, size of reactor, and gas purity
 required.  Specific efficiency data can be provided upon request based on gas
 purity required."
