Current water electrolysis technologies remain non-competitive in contrast to methods of deriving hydrogen from fossil fuel sources. Hydrox Holdings Ltd. offers a simplistic and sustainable approach to alkaline water electrolysis by making the technology more cost competitive than all other methods of hydrogen production.

Hydrox Holding’s unique Divergent-Electrode-Flow-Through (DEFTTM) technology, unlocks inexpensive hydrogen production from renewable energy sources operating off a reliable principle. This is achieved by employing a system made up of fewer components with lower capital and operating costs with enormous potential.
