Genesys, LLC is pleased to report it has reached an historic milestone in energy technology. On October 21, 2009 at about 6:37 p.m. PST, the company filled and floated its first hydrogen balloon using the patented RET (radiant energy transfer) technology, which can convert any form of water into pure hydrogen and oxygen. This unique technology uses various selected frequencies of electromagnetic radiation in order to optimize the breaking of the oxygen/hydrogen bond in an energy efficient manner. The products of the decomposition are then separated using a proprietary separation technology into two streams of hydrogen and oxygen. In this demonstration the hydrogen generated from tap water filled a one and a half foot diameter balloon to show the practicality of the process and the purity of the hydrogen produced. This revolutionary, low cost method can run on a continuous basis and uses waste heat and any form of water to produce pure hydrogen and oxygen. The technology is modular and easily scaled, and can use any form of water, such as wastewater, seawater or tap water. The company recently produced hydrogen from wastewater obtained from a municipal waste treatment plant. In order to drive the process, any form of waste heat that is readily available can be used. Given the abundance of solar and geothermal heat, it is possible to have an infinite source of hydrogen. This enables the solution of two major issues facing mankind: peak oil and global warming. Since hydrogen can be produced anywhere using the RET, costs of production, transportation and storage of hydrogen are minimized, resulting in economics that are very competitive with fossil fuels. The process does not use carbon and the hydrogen generated can be used as an energy source; water being the only product, so that it is completely compatible with natural environmental cycles. Ronny Bar-Gadda, the CEO and inventor said,

”I can understand the elation the Wright brothers felt on their first flight at Kitty Hawk or when Thomas Edison first switched on the electric light bulb. Only future historians, with a greater perspective will be able to judge this event and technology in its rightful place. But for me, now, this represents the end of a chapter in my book of inventing and developing this technology. I have proven the technology can now be used for practical purposes. It is now upwards and onwards to develop and scale this technology for all mankind.”

The company intends to complete development and scale this technology for commercial hydrogen production. This technology is economically very competitive with existing commercial hydrogen processes such as steam methane reforming or electrolysis of water. The RET technology can also provide its own electricity to run the process which is presently impossible with water electrolysis. RET does not compete with food production like bio-fuels such as ethanol or bio-diesel, and drinking water for food production and human consumption, unlike conventional solar thermal technologies that use cooling water for electricity generation.
