  Defying the siege.. a Gazan succeeds in converting water into cooking gas
Gaza, Muhammad Abu Qamar, exclusive for - 2008-06-21

Mahmoud Ramada of Anusairat Refugee Camp, is earnestly attempting to overcome the cooking gas shortage due the siege. had previously reported on Ramadan's previous attempts to collect methane gas from sewage. However, his attempts were not as he expected because air was mixing with methane, thus reducing the efficiency of the flame. However, he is earnestly trying to develop the process.
Ramadan is making slow, but steady progress. In another attempt to extract hydrogen gas from water H2O, Ramadan was able to separate hydrogen from water. However, hydrogen is an exploding gas and does not burn. But Ramadan did not stop there, he was able to chemically process the hydrogen atoms in order to produce a flame rather than explosion.
According to Ramadan, a number of countries use hydrogen to power cars. However, such process produces water as a byproduct of the chemical reaction which does not fit well in a cooker. But Ramadan said he was able to solve that problem and get rid of the resulting water.

Needs further development

Ramadan's experiment relies on using a battery and few pipes and valves. Water is passed through the system, broken into hydrogen, which is passed through to a cooker after being processed. The cost of this simple apparatus is about $450. No additional cost involved.

However, Ramadan is still trying to pressurize the hydrogen gas to get a stronger flame, something he is still attempting to develop. He said that the gas lasts longer. One liter of water results in a burning flame for about one hour.

Ramadan explained that a small amount of water mixed with chlorine is released through an exhaust which could be used for cleaning purposes as well, especially in kitchens and bathrooms.
Now that he has achieved a relative success in producing cooking gas, Ramadan sets his eyes towards running cars after succeeding in getting rid of the water accompanying the chemical process.

However, currently, the gas is produced directly. To compress and store it, Ramadan said that it would require equipment and machinery not available in Gaza, however, he believes what has been achieved so far is a success story to create alternatives to the gas provided by the Israeli occupation.
