  • Publication number: 20240059557
    Abstract: An exemplary hydrogen production apparatus 100 according to the present invention includes a grinding unit 10 configured to grind a silicon chip or a silicon grinding scrap 1 to form silicon fine particles 2, and a hydrogen generator 70 configured to generate hydrogen by causing the silicon fine particles 2 to contact with as well as disperse in, or to contact with or dispersed in water or an aqueous solution. The hydrogen production apparatus 100 can achieve reliable production of a practically adequate amount of hydrogen from a start material of silicon chips or silicon grinding scraps that are ordinarily regarded as waste. The hydrogen production apparatus thus effectively utilizes the silicon chips or the silicon grinding scraps so as to contribute to environmental protection as well as to significant reduction in cost for production of hydrogen that is utilized as an energy source in the next generation.

  • Publication number: 20230355665
    Abstract: One solid preparation of the present invention mainly includes silicon fine particles, and has a capability of generating hydrogen. In addition, one specific example of the solid preparation mainly includes silicon fine particles having a crystallite diameter principally of 1 nm or more and 100 nm or less, and exhibits a capability of generating hydrogen in an amount of 3 ml/g or more when brought into contact with a water-containing liquid having a pH value of 7 or more. In this solid preparation, hydrogen is generated when the silicon fine particles are brought into contact with a water-containing liquid having a pH value of 7 or more. Therefore, taking advantage of the characteristics of the solid preparation, generation of hydrogen is promoted in, for example, a gastrointestinal tract where the pH value is 7 or more due to secretion of pancreatic fluid after passage through the stomach after oral ingestion.

  • Patent number: 11176800
    Abstract: A power supply device is such that when an output voltage is abnormal, a system manager or the like can easily acquire information effective in identifying a cause of the abnormality. The power supply device includes a first light emitting element installed to be visually recognizable from an exterior, and a light emitting element control unit that drives the first light emitting element. When an output voltage is abnormal, the light emitting element control unit causes the first light emitting element to flash, thereby convert at least one of specific power supply operation information used for inferring a cause of the output voltage being abnormal and cause information inferred based on the specific power supply operation information into an optical digital signal formatted for serial communication, and causes the optical digital signal to be output from the first light emitting element.
