Amazonica Corp. (OTCBB: AMZZ) (OTCQB: AMZZ) ("Amazonica" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its project manager, Dr. Gennadiy Glazunov, has commissioned a new and larger facility within National Science Centre KIPT (the "Institute"), Kharkov, Ukraine in order to accommodate various equipment and personnel required to continue R&D on the 99.999% pure hydrogen production project.
Dr. Glazunov has also commissioned the manufacture of various prototypes in order to assist in the further R&D of the pure hydrogen producing technology.
The Kharkov Institute of Physics and Technology, home to the Institute of Plasma Physics, is the oldest and largest of the institutions within Ukrainian National Academy of Science, and has been at the forefront of scientific developments since the country obtained independence.
"I am very pleased with our progress to date on our ultra-pure hydrogen project," stated Michael Soursos, CEO. "Dr. Glazunov and his team of scientists are making great strides with their work in the development of our technology."
About the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine
The National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine is the highest research body in Ukraine, as a self-governing state-funded organization. It is the main research institution along with the five other academies specialized in various scientific disciplines. NAS Ukraine consists of numerous departments, sections, research institutes, scientific centers and various other supporting scientific research.
The Kharkov Institute of Physics and Technology ("KIPT") is one of oldest and largest centers of physical science in Ukraine, and was founded in 1928. After independence, the Institute has become actively involved in the creation of research complexes of Ukraine, as well as in shaping policy in the field of atomic industry, nuclear energy, in the development of material science, accelerator equipment and new sources of energy for demands of civil and defense branches.
Nearly 400 PhDs and 80 Doctors of Sciences work at KIPT, alongside 7 Members of National Academy of Sciences. More than fifty scientists working at the Institute are winners of State and international prizes in their respective fields. Since 1981 more than 60 monographs have been published by the scientists working at KIPT.
Hydrogen is the simplest, most prolific, and lightest element in the universe. Hydrogen is not normally available in a gaseous state in our environment, since it readily combines with oxygen to form water, or with carbon to form fossil fuels such as crude oil, natural gas, or coal. Hydrogen has a number of uses, including in the manufacture of ammonia, but it is its potential as a fuel that is attracting significant interest and investment. It has been possible to construct or convert internal combustion engines to run on hydrogen for some time, but safety and storage concerns prevented any wide scale use. Recent advances in technology, particularly in fuel cells, allied to the environmental concerns from burning fossil fuels, have caused a re-evaluation of hydrogen as a power source.
First discovered by German scientist Christian Friedrich Schnbein in 1838, fuel cells are only now coming to widespread attention, in a large part due to their potential to replace the internal combustion engine in cars and commercial road vehicles. Fuel cells chemically convert hydrogen to electricity to provide power, emitting only water vapor as a waste product in the process.
All major car manufacturers have, or are planning, hydrogen fuel cell powered vehicles, and there are already hundreds of hydrogen fuel cell powered buses on the streets of the world's major cities. Fuel cell powered vehicles are more energy efficient than internal combustion powered vehicles, can be refueled in a matter of minutes and can travel for hundreds of miles between refueling. In addition to road vehicles, hydrogen fuel cells are also being investigated for their potential in airplanes, submarines and boats, smartphones and other electronics, food preservation and emergency power systems.
The most common methods of producing hydrogen at the moment are by stripping the carbon atoms out of compressed natural gas using steam (known as "cracking") or the electrolysis of water. Both these processes are expensive, energy intensive and in the case of cracking, produces waste carbon. Commercial production of clean, cheap hydrogen is therefore a key requirement for large scale fuel cell usage.
