The problems of hydrogen energetic as well as a method of high pure hydrogen obtaining are presented in the paper. It was suggested to use the reaction of aluminium nanopowder with water, as the reaction proceeds with high rate even at ambient conditions (the rate of hydrogen emission reached 18 ml/(s·g)) and high degree of conversion (up to 100 %). The unreasonableness of the replacement of aluminium nanopowder to coarse-grained powder in this reaction due to the low efficiency is shown in the article. As a solution for pure hydrogen obtaining, a phenomenon of self-heating of aluminum nanoparticles and the resulting hydrogen, as well as the effect of its high-temperature diffusion through the membrane of ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene were used.
