Abstract


Water electrolysis process for hydrogen generation is widely used in various branches of industry. But it has disadvantages like important energy consumption and utilization of separate membranes, which limit the generated gases pressure.

This article describes the hydrogen and oxygen generation technology excluding the separating ion-exchange membranes and providing high gases pressure due to applying the variable valence metal chemically active electrodes as well as due to separating in time and space the electrolytic processes of water decomposition for gases liberation.

The electrolyzer based on this technology surpasses all of the known analogues by the level of technical decisions, simplicity of mounting and servicing, reliability and safety.
