Our mission
Our Mission

  • Standardized fueling station for a H2 city

  • Supply the transportation network with H2 fuel using renewable resources


Where we ll be stationed
Where we’ll be stationed…

  • Boulder City, Nevada–25 miles SE of Las Vegas

  • Located about 6 miles from the Hoover Dam and 5 miles from the Boulder City Landfill

  • Population: 16,840

  • Requires about

    9,000kg of H2 a day

    to meet transport

    needs


In a perfect world
In a perfect world…

  • Safe

  • Sustainable

  • 350 BAR and 700 BAR for passenger and commercial vehicles.

  • HCNG containing up to 30% hydrogen at 250 BAR

  • 2 stations to meet the city needs with 6 pumps at each station


How will we produce it
How will we produce it?

  • Electrolysis

    • Water

      • Large energy cost

    • Urine

      • Urine breaks down

    • Microbial

      • Not developed

  • Molten Carbonate Fuel Cell

    • Breaks Down

  • Steam Biomethane

    • Costly


  • How to get it to the station
    How to get it to the station

    • Trucks

      • Constant Refill

  • Pipes

    • Costly

  • Produced on Site

    • Need of space

  • Produced at House

    • Not realistic


  • Storage distribution
    Storage/Distribution

    • Liquid

      • Expensive

  • Gas

    • Storage

  • Produced Right Before Use

    • Cant keep up with demand


  • Source of power

    The initial cost
    The initial Cost…

    • Steam Methane Reformer -> $20,000,000

      +

    • Pipelines -> $10,000,000

      +

    • Cost of Stations -> $17,324,000

    • Total Cost of System -> $57,324,000


    Profit per day
    Profit Per Day

    • Sell 350 and 700 bar at 4$ a kg ->$30,400 per day

    • Sell HCNG at 5$ a kg -> $37,500 per day

    • Cost to pump -> $40,000 per day

    • 50 employees to run system -> $7,000 per day

    • Nitrogen -> $5,000 per day

    • Methane -> $2,000 per day

    • Total Profit -> $13,900 per day

    • Yearly Profit -> $5,073,500 a year


    Paving the way for the future
    Paving the way for the future

    • The system will be paid off in a little over 11 years

    • This system is replica table around most cities that have landfills in the vicinity

    • We could sell hydrogen for other city needs
