Project descriptionHydrox Holdings Limited, established in 2002 is based in Randburg, Johannesburg and currently employs 4 full time persons.

Hydrox Holdings Ltd. provides innovative solutions for producing hydrogen inexpensively from water, through patented, Divergent Electrode Flow Through (DEFTTM) principle for alkaline electrolysis technology.
