The Most Energy Efficient Source
of Clean Energy

BoMax Technology

BoMax utilizes visible light to provide a source of electrons – no rare metals, such as platinum, are used and little or no electricity is required from the grid. BoMax hydrogen is pure and will not require costly filtering, lowering cost over traditional systems that if left unfiltered may damage expensive fuel cell catalysts. As a scalable, self-contained energy production system, it can be deployed for most any hydrogen energy source use anywhere in the world.

BoMax alpha prototype

  • The BoMax solution combines nanoparticles, enzymes, and visible light to produce green hydrogen
    • Visible light activates nanoparticles which emit electrons
    • Enzymes on the nanoparticles use electrons to convert available hydrogen ions to hydrogen gas.
    • The resulting hydrogen is pure and doesn’t require costly filtering for use in a fuel cell.
  • The BoMax process requires no fossil fuels or rare metals and generates no hazardous byproducts.
  • The BoMax Box is a scalable technology, easily deployed to any location on the planet.

Clean, affordable, safe, on-site

The hydrogen generation system used by BoMax is complex with components that require tuning to establish the best cooperative interaction for producing hydrogen rates of sufficient rate and duration for a marketable hydrogen production system. The system must have a light source to work. Visible light and the secondary components facilitate the process to allow for adequate electron transfer to the active site. The FeMo-co accepts the electrons from CdSe and combines with the protons to form hydrogen which bubbles out of solution.

As the world struggles to meet the ever-increasing energy needs of governments and industry, hydrogen continues to be the best, most effective solution. Now, with a working prototype, BoMax is poised to change the way hydrogen is made, stored, and applied by offering a scalable, green technology that can meet growing demand.

The BoMax System is a

green, carbon-free system for renewable energy production.
