Affordable hydrogen anywhere, on demand.

Disruptive technology producing pure hydrogen from tap water, river water, and soon... sea water.

ABOUT GILMAN INDUSTRIES

Gilman Industries is a nascent company focused on providing exclusive licenses of our technology to companies who intend to commercialize it in their markets.

Our disruptive technology is fully patented in the USA, with patents pending in over 40 other countries.
Our mission is solving your energy problems with pure hydrogen from virtually any water source, scalable to meet the demands of industry, consumers and beyond.

EVOLVE™

THE WORLD'S FIRST PURE HYDROGEN FROM TAP WATER GENERATOR.

WHAT IS EVOLVE™?

Evolve™ is the culmination of back to basics testing and challenging the practices of the last 50 years in the hydrogen generation industry, combined with new materials and new approaches.

Evolve™ is an onsite hydrogen generator that converts ordinary tap water, ground water, or seawater into pure fuel grade hydrogen. It will produce hydrogen for under 48 kWh per kg. It will be mass manufactured for an eighth of the cost of current units, and will outlive them 13 times.

Evolve™ will produce hydrogen onsite, which eliminates shipping costs and means far fewer gas storage requirements. With a scalable approach, we’re able to create custom configurations through 3D design and injection molding.

Evolve™ established its proof of concept on December 8, 2015, through experiments performed at SUNY Farmingdale Institute Research Technology Transfer. Gilman Industries scheduled tests in deionized water and tap water to determine: if Evolve™ was making pure hydrogen; if Evolve™ was able to isolate oxygen away from the hydrogen; and if we could get hydrogen purity from tap water. The tests were conclusive, and were verified by Dr. Hazem Tawfik PH. D & PE. Professor of Mechanical Engineering Technology at SUNY Farmingdale, and the Director of the Institute for Research and Technology.

Evolve™ received purity scores from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute – Center for Future Energy Systems on October 1, 2016. The test showed that Evolve was producing hydrogen at 99.32% purity. Later we learned that this score was achieved with leaks in our containment vessel. The leaks were easily correctable, and we could have achieved > 99.97% hydrogen purity without leaks.

Evolve™ received its patent on October 26, 2016 (patent # US9476133). We have the following patents pending in Canada, Europe and the World Patentry Organization: CA2900853A1, EP2976446A4, & WO2014153389A1.

Evolve™ is scalable. Thanks to 3D file structure and injection molding, we can scale Evolve™ to fit the needs of customers in a wide range of markets, from large scale industrial use to portable “Hydrogen with a Handle”.

OUR TEAM

Brian Gilman

The Founder & CEO who designed and developed Evolve™. He wrote patent US9476133, created 59 patent drawings, assembled the team, and forged public relations with potential customers. Brian was raised in a family of engineers, and his creative career path never strayed far from the precision work of his roots. His inspired leap and talents in design enabled him to take his vision of Evolve™ and make it reality. Brian has always had a passion for cleaner fuel sources, and in 2011 he decided to make one of his envisioned designs come to life. He designed the Evolve™ device to create high volumes of hydrogen for fuel cells and combustion engines. His extensive research into electro-conductive materials led him to draft the design based on his findings.

Spencer Teplin

Spencer has always chosen environments, both personal and public, as his focus of interest. His desire to improve the world we live in lead to his dedication to renewable energies, which began with a successful five year trial of fueling and maintaining a fleet of vegetable oil-based diesel cars. Now approaching his 30th year at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and the Watson School of Biological Sciences, Spencer has decades of experience as Shared Research Core Facility Manager. His facility handles the Sanger sequencing analysis for hundreds of scientists. His managerial experience aids in the daily function of Gilman Industries, which he and Brian cofounded after their initial dissociation “garage” tests. His contributions to written and graphic content has helped their small company establish itself internationally and online.
