AAQIUS: creating “low-CO2” technology standards
AAQIUS is a company specialising in the development, industrialisation and market deployment of innovative and disruptive “low-carbon” technology standards for the energy and mobility sector worldwide.
AAQIUS has to-date successfully created three “low-CO2” technology solutions in the area of engine emissions controls; each solution has already become a global standard in the automotive industry.
AAQIUS’ growth has been built on a unique Research and Business model that combines strong technical expertise, disruptive innovations, and the ability to successfully develop these innovations into profitable businesses through the creation of technology standards on a global scale. The deployment of these solutions requires that AAQIUS organise and structure long-term partnerships with all of the key players in the value-chain.
STOR-H by AAQIUS: the new energy standard for green mobility
In 2009 AAQIUS launched its internal development of a disruptive means of storing hydrogen safely and easily in order to accelerate the deployment of “zero-CO2” mobility.
Protected by over 150 patents, the STOR-H technology enables the solid storage of hydrogen, at very low pressures, in safe easy-to-use cartridges that can be distributed in vending machines, thus eliminating the need for expensive and intrusive infrastructure.
A proprietary IT platform and its smartphone APP allows both businesses (BTB) and consumers (BTC) access to the STOR-H ecosystem, where they can manage their mobility needs and/or their energy needs. The IT platform and APP allow the STOR-H business model to be easily replicated and scaled up during the rollout of the STOR-H ecosystem worldwide.
The deployment of STOR-H targets the production of hydrogen from renewable energies through the electrolysis of water. This makes STOR-H an effective catalyst in the creation of a true “zero-CO2” hydrogen value chain in each area of the world where it is being deployed.
