Kobelco Eco-Solutions Co Ltd announced a new model of its "H2Box" hydrogen generator. This time, the company reduced the size of the generator and improved its operability by reducing space required for maintenance.

The H2Box is a water electrolysis-based hydrogen generator. It uses a solid polymer film and can be easily moved. The new model, "H2Box-II," will be released in October 2018.

It can generate more than 1Nm3 of hydrogen per hour. Its hydrogen supply pressure, hydrogen purity and hydrogen dew point are 0.82MPa or higher, 99.999% or higher and -70°C or lower, respectively. It measures 1,000 (W) x 400 (D) x 2,600mm (H), and its dry weight is planned to be about 500kg.
