Hydrogen Production Improvements Spark HyperSolar Inc (OTCMKTS:HYSR)

HyperSolar Inc (OTCMKTS:HYSR) has seen a jump in volume and price after the Company announced it was able to improve the photocurrents achievable from its proprietary nanostructured solar cell materials for hydrogen (“H2”) production by approximately one hundred percent (100%). HSYR is the developer of a breakthrough technology to produce renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water.

HYSR has been in a downward trend for months caused by significant debt conversions. The stock has a long history of big moves making a spectacular run on massive volume from $0.0035 to highs of $0.135 in April of 2014.

HyperSolar Inc (OTCMKTS:HYSR) is developing a breakthrough, low-cost technology to make renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, including seawater and wastewater. Unlike hydrocarbon fuels, such as oil, coal and natural gas, where carbon dioxide and other contaminants are released into the atmosphere when used, hydrogen fuel usage produces pure water as the only byproduct.

HyperSolar’s research is centered on developing a low-cost and submersible hydrogen production particle that can split water molecules under the sun, emulating the core functions of photosynthesis. Each particle is a complete hydrogen generator that contains a novel high voltage solar cell bonded to chemical catalysts by a proprietary encapsulation coating.

The theoretical minimum voltage needed to split water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen is 1.23 V. However, in real world systems, 1.5 V or more is generally needed because of the low reaction kinetics. So far, other researchers have only been able to achieve this voltage level through the use of either inefficient materials, such as titanium oxide, or very expensive semiconductors, such as gallium arsenide. Also, overcoming the corrosive degradation of these “artificial photosynthesis” systems remains a monumental challenge and has thus far eluded commercialization.

Back in October HYSR achieved a significant technological milestone in its pursuit of clean hydrogen fuel production, by eliminating an expensive hydrogen-oxygen separation process. This will dramatically reduce the overall system cost of hydrogen fuel production from sunlight.

The Company has developed a novel reactor design and system architecture that uses a high voltage solar cell, that can be wrapped in the company’s patent pending polymer coating, that serves two functions: (1) convert sunlight into electricity to split water into hydrogen on one side, and oxygen on the other side, and (2) acts as a physical barrier preventing oxygen from combining with hydrogen. The respective hydrogen and oxygen gas bubbles to the top of the reactor as two separate and pure gas streams. This novel design circumvents the need for membrane separators all together.

On May 24 HYSR announced it recently was able to improve the photocurrents achievable from its proprietary nanostructured solar cell materials for hydrogen (“H2”) production by approximately one hundred percent (100%).

The amount of hydrogen production is directly related to the amount of photocurrents generated from the solar cell materials. This breakthrough constitutes an important milestone in the Company’s effort to split water molecules for the production of renewable hydrogen fuel.

HyperSolar has previously shown that it could reliably achieve photovoltages exceeding 1.5 Volts, the widely accepted voltage needed for splitting water using sunlight as the sole energy input. With the photovoltage challenge solved, HyperSolar focused its recent efforts on improving the photocurrent. It is now able to achieve a current density of 5 mA cm-2, or two-thirds of the value needed to achieve the Company’s commercialization goal of 10% solar-to-H2 efficiency. By effectively doubling the photocurrents of its solar cell materials, the Company is progressing towards a system that may potentially be very economical in a real-world environment for hydrogen production to meet increased market demand. Further development efforts will focus on increasing the long-term stability of the cells within these reactor environments.

Currently trading at a $6.6 million market valuation HYSR has minimal assets, no revenues and close to $10 million in payables. But this is an exciting story developing in small cap; the Company is the developer of a breakthrough technology to produce renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, a system the Company has continued to improve greatly and the stock has a long history of making explosive short term runs especially when there are events that create nationwide optimism for the future of hydrogen fuel technology. We will be updating on HYSR when more details emerge so make sure you are subscribed to Microcapdaily so you know what’s going on with HYSR.
