HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--American Security Resources Corporation (OTCBB:ARSC) announced that it is developing a technology to formulate hydrogen that will change the economics of producing hydrogen sufficient to enable the hydrogen economy.

In an interview on AudioStocks.com (www.audiostocks.com), ARSC CEO Frank Neukomm revealed that the company's subsidiary Hydra Fuel Cell Corp. was successfully upgrading an experimental method of producing hydrogen originally developed at a U.S. university.

Ben Schafer, CTO of Hydra Fuel Cell Corp., speaking on The Bill Chippas Show, (www.billchippasshow.com) said that currently the cost of producing a kilogram of hydrogen was around $7 to $8. Using this new technology, the cost of producing hydrogen could drop below $2 per kg, which is the DOE threshold to make hydrogen competitive with established energy sources.

Bob Farr, President and COO of ARSC, stated,"We expect the ability to produce hydrogen on demand using this technology will be a much bigger business for us than the fuel cell business."
