Technological breakthrough will reduce the cost of catalyst by minimizing the noble metal loading, a critical component for hydrogen production. SANTA BARBARA, CA, Dec. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HyperSolar, Inc. (HYSR), the developer of a breakthrough technology to produce renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, today announced it has successfully identified and developed a method of minimizing the loading of expensive platinum (Pt) catalyst on a large surface area 3D carbon foam structure, which will be incorporated into the generator for hydrogen production. HyperSolar’s research team at the University of Iowa published their results in Frontiers in Chemistry, a peer-reviewed scientific journal that details news and breakthroughs within scientific disciplines including electrochemical energy storage and conversion, electrochemical materials science, electrocatalyst and photoelectrochemistry etc. The published paper highlights the scientific team’s successful stable hydrogen production using the ultra-low Pt loaded 3D carbon foam that showed excellent mass activities superior to the state-of-the-art commercial platinum/carbon catalyst.
The company’s intensive laboratory research and development efforts over the last seven years have resulted in multiple innovations in renewable hydrogen. While its patented nanoparticle technology is still in development, the Company’s management believes it can utilize its proprietary stability coatings and catalysts with readily available commercial solar cells encapsulated in panels with water (“hydrogen generation panels”) to demonstrate a completely renewable hydrogen generation system at production pilot plant scale. The Company’s management is currently negotiating with various suppliers to manufacture the quantity of hydrogen generation panels required for its production pilot plant. Once a lead contract manufacturer has been selected, the Company’s technology team must transfer its lab processes and techniques to production engineers to complete the commercialization of the hydrogen generation panels.
The patent is critical to protecting the intellectual property related to the development of HyperSolar’s GEN 2 technology, a potentially very low-cost renewable hydrogen technology. This patent is jointly owned by HyperSolar and the Regents of the University of California, as a result of the collaboration with the University of California, Santa Barbara in developing the technology.
