Millennium Cell Inc. (NASDAQ: MCEL) Founded in 1998, Millennium Cell is based in Eatontown, NJ has invented, patented, and developed a proprietary process that takes advantage of the inherent energy density of boron-hydrogen compounds, but that allows this energy to be accessed in a straightforward way. This process, called Hydrogen on Demand™, safely generates high-purity hydrogen from environmentally friendly raw materials. The produced hydrogen can then be consumed in a fuel cell or hydrogen-burning engine to produce useful power. The "hydrogen" is stored at ambient conditions in a non-flammable liquid "fuel" - an aqueous solution of sodium borohydride, NaBH4. Sodium borohydride is made from borax, a material that is found in substantial natural reserves globally. The process supplies pure hydrogen for energy applications without the need (and associated energy penalties) for compression or liquefaction. Hydrogen produced by this system can be used for numerous applications, addressing a wide range of power requirements. The primary input components of the reaction are water and sodium borohydride, a derivative of borax. Borax is found in substantial natural reserves globally. Hydrogen from this system can be used to power fuel cells or fed directly to internal combustion engines. Millennium cell also has a patented design for boron-based longer-life batteries.
