One of the simplest and best ways to generate oxygen and hydrogen is to pass an electric current through water.

The water is decomposed into two volumes of hydrogen and one volume oxygen, since water consists of H20.

A bank of 30 generators is shown, in the plant of the International Oxygen Company.

Each 24 hours it produces 4608 cubic feet of oxygen and 9216 cubic feet of hydrogen gas.
