A Few Words About BoMax

BoMax Hydrogen, LLC (formed in early 2014) has developed a patented photo-biocatalytic system that uses light activated nanoparticles coupled with bioinorganic molecules to generate 100% clean hydrogen.   Bomax Hydrogen’s innovation is a patented renewable energy system that produces clean, green, renewable hydrogen at the point of use. The unsolved energy challenge in this century will be to eliminate our dependence on fossil fuels and power our very way of life without damaging our environment. The scientific enterprise that solves the hydrogen production challenge will generate global sales and licensing opportunities for that company and its investors.

Our vision is to transform the energy market in a way never seen or conceived, just imagine affordable “on-site” energy generation at levels capable of supporting residential and commercial applications with no carbon footprint.  

Currently, our strategic focus is two-fold:

  • continue the cutting-edge optimization work related to our technology, and
  • finding strategic partners who can come along side us to share insight into our technology, raise the awareness of our product to the market, and provide the needed capital/resources to help us achieve our goals.




Dr. Deborah Maxwell, Chief Science Officer

Deborah Bolin Maxwell was born in South Carolina, but has lived most of her life in Central Florida.

Dr. Maxwell started her professional career as a registered respiratory therapist, specializing in neonatal intensive care. Later she returned to college to pursue graduate degrees to enable her to teach chemistry. She initially studied in an environmental chemistry laboratory at the University of Central Florida, specializing in remediation of heavy metals in contaminated soils and sediments earning her Masters of Industrial Chemistry degree.

Dr. Maxwell then worked in a biochemistry laboratory at the University of Central Florida, earning her PhD and working with the iron-molybdenum cofactor in nitrogenase coupled to photo-catalytic materials. The goal was to develop green energy resources. Dr. Maxwell has taught chemistry at the University of Central Florida, Seminole State College, Valencia College, and at Stetson University.

Dr. Maxwell is currently the Chief Science Officer of BoMax Hydrogen Lab at the Space Life Sciences Laboratory in Merritt Island, Florida. BoMax is working on a passive method to produce hydrogen utilizing a photo-catalytic system derived from bacteria and an inexpensive light harvesting material.
