The increase of the consumption of fossil fuels has led to its unsustainability for being a non-renewable energy, and to be the main cause of greenhouse gases. This has stimulated the search of new sources of energy, such as hydrogen which isfriendly to the environment and can meet energy demands presented today.
In this investigation, the effect of the temperature and concentration of the electrolyte on the production of hydrogen, was studied, using an electrolyzer of 7 plates.The results indicate that at high temperatures, there islowelectrical potentials in the cell, this indicateshigh ionic conductivity, low electrical resistance and consequently highr efficiency of the electrolysis process.
