• About Hydrox Holdings

OUR MISSION

To unlock the use of hydrogen as the fuel of the future through the development of novel type low cost electrolysis modules, in the aim of preserving our planet for future generations.

Hydrox Holding’s unique Divergent-Electrode-Flow-Through (DEFTTM) technology and applications of Advanced Alkaline Electrolysers (AAE), unlock inexpensive hydrogen production from renewable energy sources operating off reliable principles.

WHAT WE DO

Cost effective methods

We have a clear passion and drive toward developing cost effective methods to produce hydrogen. Current water electrolysis technologies remain uncompetitive in contrast to methods of deriving hydrogen from fossil fuel sources. Hydrox Holdings Ltd. aims to offer a simplistic and sustainable approach to alkaline water electrolysis by developing a technology that is cost effective in contrast to existing water electrolysis technologies making hydrogen accessible to all.

Inexpensive hydrogen

Hydrox Holding’s unique Divergent-Electrode-Flow-Through (DEFTTM) technology unlocks inexpensive hydrogen production from renewable energy sources operating off a reliable simplistic principle. Additionally, our Advanced Alkaline Electrolyser (AAE) technology enables us to utilise our expertise, technology, and experience to expand into a commercial “green” hydrogen producer for both the South African and broader African hydrogen market.
