 Air Liquide (www.us.airliquide.com) has acquired the Hydrogen Generation Module (HGM) technology from H2Gen Innovations Inc. (Alexandria, Va.), a designing, manufacturing and marketing company for on-site hydrogen generators and gas purification units. The agreement took effect November 19, 2009.

The HGM units produce high purity hydrogen for a variety of applications including float glass production, heat treatment of metals, hydrogen energy and photovoltaic processes. In most of these markets the demand for hydrogen is combined with a need for nitrogen or other specialty gases. In the past few years, H2Gen has seen its HGM activity grow rapidly with numerous units in operation in North America as well as recent commercial successes in Europe, Russia and the Middle East.   “The HGM units embody a comprehensive set of inventions and innovations that H2Gen has…
