Abstract

We describe a system for producing hydrogen directly from the flow of rivers without the use of dams. Dams have been the source of widespread destruction of the environment and the displacement of populations. The Aswan dam flodded the homes of thousands of Numidians along the banks of the Nile, and the great Yangstee Dam is causing nearly a million Chinese to lose their homes. Our system uses the current of the river in a magnetic field to generate electricity without dams or moving generators. The electricity will then be used to electrolyze free hydrogen for use as clean fuel.
