Abstract:
Early production stage hydrogen generation company AlumiFuel Power, Inc. ("API"), the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based wholly owned operating subsidiary of AlumiFuel Power Corporation (OTCBB: AFPW), (the "Company"), announced today that it is developing and testing a new smaller scale reactor, which has enabled it to rapidly analyze its hydrogen generation reactions and further customize its AlumiFuel powder mixes for specific applications.

AlumiFuel Power, Inc. Develops New Reactor

Centennial, CO | Posted on September 23rd, 2009

The new test reactor is slightly bigger than a coffee cup and can be used to generate 2-10 liters of hydrogen. The reactor uses small packages containing 4-10 grams of API's proprietary AlumiFuel powder mixture; the packages can be conveniently discarded after the reaction. The unit features no moving parts, is simple and safe to use and neither contains nor produces any toxic materials. This reactor has been used to run smaller variations of the fuel mixture and various hydrogen generation reaction control mechanisms.

The use of this small reactor has significantly contributed to the Company's nanoscale research using the resources of Drexel's Nanotechnology Institute. In continuation of the research described previously (see API press release of July 16, 2009), API has been able to analyze new types of samples of post-reaction powders to fully comprehend and control the reaction for various applications. In addition, through the efforts of Drexel's distinguished nanotechnology faculty and API's material sciences engineers, API has been successful in observing and capturing the interactions between the individual fuel particles and hydrogen bubble formations using a Laser Scanning Microscope and various sophisticated optical microscopes. The groundbreaking knowledge obtained through this research has been vital in developing new parameters to further optimize and control API's hydrogen generation reaction for multiple applications.

This new small-scale reactor represents API's second reactor product, joining the PBIS-1000, which is in early stages of production for weather balloon lift gas and other applications (see API press release of August 5, 2009).

API's Director of Engineering, Mr. Sean McIntosh said, "In addition to this laboratory research functionality, we are actively pursuing opportunities to develop this smaller reactor as a commercially available small-scale source of on-demand hydrogen. The potential applications of this product include power sources for small fuel cells to charge cell phones, laptops, cameras, and PDAs. Other possible uses include: small scale welding applications; small portable flameless catalytic heaters; and industrial laboratory settings where small quantities of hydrogen are needed for experiments, and the users do not want the expense or hassle of storing large pressurized cylinders. The new reactor could also be a "green energy" education and demonstration tool for high schools and universities, providing teachers, professors, and students with an affordable, safe, convenient source of hydrogen."
