Exemplary embodiments of methods and systems for hydrogen production using an electro-activated material are provided. In some exemplary embodiments, carbon can be electro-activated and used in a chemical reaction with water and a fuel, such as aluminum, to generate hydrogen. Controlling the temperature of the reaction, and the amounts of water, aluminum and electro-activated carbon can provide hydrogen on demand at a desired rate of hydrogen generation.
1. A method comprising: placing a carbon material in a vessel;providing water within the vessel;providing electrical current through the water to oxidize the surface of the carbon material in the water to produce electro-activated carbon; andseparating the electro-activated carbon from the water. 2. The method of claim 1, further comprising: adding an electrolyte in the water in the vessel. 3. The method of claim 1, wherein the electrical current is provided at less than 5 amps. 4. The method of claim 1, wherein the carbon material is one or more of pure...
