Innovative Process Positions HyperSolar to Increase Voltage Needed to Produce Renewable Hydrogen
Company reduces cost and improves efficiency through recently announced low-cost, water-based manufacturing process
SANTA BARBARA, CA – June 9, 2015 - HyperSolar, Inc. (OTCQB: HYSR), the developer of a breakthrough technology to produce renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, today emphasized the importance of its recently identified low-cost, water-based manufacturing process. This innovative process positions the Company to increase the voltage needed to produce renewable hydrogen using only sunlight.
HyperSolar technology is based on the development of a process that mimics artificial photosynthesis, requiring only sunlight to separate water from hydrogen. This process generally requires voltages of more than 1.5 volts (V), yet current commercially available low-cost silicon solar cells can achieve only 0.7V. In order to break this voltage barrier, HyperSolar is developing a technology that will replace the conventional and expensive vapor deposition process required to make the solar cell component. To address this challenge, the Company’s University of Iowa research team has developed an innovative and patent protected water-based process where solar cell materials are stacked on top of each other literally by "dipping" into low-cost beakers of solutions containing appropriate chemistries. This significant achievement relies on the water-based chemistries used to produce this solar cell component, one that requires inexpensive earth abundant materials, rather than rare earth materials.
This recent breakthrough in the manufacturing process is believed to represent a major hurdle crossed towards achieving a prototype solar driven hydrogen production unit with photovoltage more than 1.5V. Conventional solar-powered water electrolyzers used to produce hydrogen are considered expensive and not viable for large-scale commercialization. However, HyperS
Things haven't been going well for you 'longs' here. I would like to see things change for the better. FCEL made me a pretty coin last year. Would love to see everybody make a decent trade here as I did. Patience is a virtue! Hang in there guys! I think I'll open a new position here if this goes sub $1. Let's see how this plays out! LETS GO FCEL!!!
HYSR time is coming. I think we will close green tomorrow on much higher volume than today. I been holding HYSR since March/April 2014 and have been adding nicely on the dips since. I think we will surpass 25 cents this year! Im holding for the gold!
Looking forward to a decent PR to be released next Tuesday. Time will tell! Lets go HYSR!!!
