Welcome to HydroAlumina
HydroAlumina's technology (The Woodall Process) is a breakthrough innovation that provides safe, inexpensive, room temperature, non-toxic, on-site, on-demand hydrogen production to enable new markets in power generation, commercial heat and power and eventually automotive and consumer applications. HydroAlumina also supplies High Purity Aluminum Oxide for the electronics industry.
Dr. Woodall's discovery that aluminum, in the presence of a gallium catalyst, can be made to split water to produce very pure hydrogen and alumina serves as the basis for the Woodall Process.
The Woodall Process
The Woodall Process is offered in three product families.
Lightweight portable batch hydrogen generators provide small to medium
quantities of hydrogen. Alumina is produced in a subsequent recycling
operation. Larger continuous reactors can indefinitely produce large
quantities of hydrogen and alumina. Lastly, the heat and hydrogen
generated by the Woodall Process can drive a variety of power
HydroAluminia is an early-stage, privately held company dedicated to commercializing the Woodall Process. HAI is based in Northern California.
