Indiana University Bloomington is exploring an alternative energy solution to powering campus vehicles through AlGalCo, an Indianapolis based startup specializing in hydrogen production.
AlGalCo’s patented hydrogen-on-demand technology produces hydrogen by adding water to an alloy comprised of over 90% common aluminum. This innovative process reduces the demand for oil, prevents air pollution, and depends on the renewable energy source aluminum.

AlGalCo has received positive feedback while testing their process. Carmel, Indiana implemented AlGalCo’s hydrogen-on-demand technology into their primary street cleaning vehicle as part of the city’s green initiative. So far these efforts have increased gas mileage and reduced harmful emissions.

AlGalCo visited the Indiana University Bloomington campus in early June to demonstrate the advantages of this technology and discuss opportunities. If there is interest from Indiana University or the City of Bloomington then vehicles used by these organizations may run on AlGalCo’s cleaner, fuel-efficient resources in the near future.

To learn more about AlGalCo and their hydrogen-on-demand process, visit their website. Photos below.
