Bongbong Marcos already said in 2013 that hydrogen is a highly flammable substance with zero carbon emission is already being used in Canada, the United States, Germany, and Sweden as fuel for cars, trucks, jet planes and other vehicles. Hydrogen as a fuel nowadays is processed from petroleum, natural gas, coal, or biomass. However, deuterium or heavy hydrogen is abundant in the Philippines. Now, Shell starts to promote its imported Hydrogen fuel. This is much more expensive than the local one because it is imported and the hydrogen is separated through electrolysis which is a costly process. Since the country’s deuterium is more than twice heavier than normal water, it sinks. In the process, oxygen separates from hydrogen when the pressure becomes about 10,000 psi or more. So, what’s the DOE waiting for?

[VIDEO]: Hydrogen: the key technology of the future
Gasoline Resources are Dwindling
Ever since people first discovered the energy contained in the fuel, we have been thinking about how to use it efficiently. Progress does not only have a positive impact. Our thirst for energy and environmental footprint is increasing at the same time as resources are dwindling. This video explores the “first element”, the technology behind it and its possible applications on the road and beyond. This is now very alarming in ASEAN countries if not the world after Brunei hints that their oil wells are running dry.
Expensive Electrolysis Process Overseas
Once separated, hydrogen can be used along with oxygen from the air in a fuel cell to create electricity through an electrochemical process. Production. Hydrogen can be produced from diverse, domestic resources including fossil fuels, biomass, and water electrolysis with electricity. Electrolysis is the process of using electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen and is a promising option for hydrogen production from renewable resources. This can be very costly on top of the import duties and shipment costs.
Untapped Extreme Deuterium Advantage
Hydrogen exists only about one centimeter in every 3,000 meters deep water mass at the ocean floor. Deuterium is basically more than twice the weight of ordinary water. It normally sinks. So, oxygen separates automatically from hydrogen when the pressure reaches 10,000 psi. This vital natural gas is good as forgotten. The previous administration despite Bongbong Marcos’ plea.
Conflict of Interest
The oil and gas industry is a very high profile sector in the world economy. As early as now, we can already feel that there is some resistance to manufacture our own hydrogen fuel from countries who are pursuing their own products. Sad to say that these business players may have some connections in the government that causes delay to Service Contract 64 since 2015 that covers the southern section of the Sulu Sea – East Palawan basins. So, what’s it going to be Department of Energy? Provide affordable and clean fuel to the people or protect the oligarchs?
