From Hydrogen, to Powder, to Power

Electriq’s Fuel and Release technologies turn hydrogen into a coffee-like powder form, then back into electricity through a proprietary catalyst and release system.

Electriq Fuel

Our hydrogenation process reacts hydrogen gas with KBO2 to produce a powdery coffee-like compound (KBH4), ready for easy storage and transportation. Our dehydrogenation process releases the hydrogen - and KBO2 as a by-product - thus forming a full cycle.

High energy density
Dry, inert, and safe to store
Lossless with long-term durability
Can be stored in ambient conditions
Simple to transport like everyday products
Can be safely sent to off-grid, remote locations
Packaging can be scaled as needed
Packaging is designed to be 100% recyclable

Electriq Release

The Electriq Release system uses a proprietary catalyst to release hydrogen from the Electriq Fuel, after mixing it with water. The dehydrogenation (release) process provides fuel-cell grade hydrogen and zero-emissions electricity.

Release is as simple as pressing a button
Exercise fine control over the release amount
Does not require grid power
Does not require additional heat or pressure
zero-emissions system
Can be used in remote applications
Used packaging can be sent for recycling
