HyperSolar Inc (OTCMKTS:HYSR) Continues to Surprise!

0

HyperSolar Inc (OTCMKTS:HYSR) recently announced a breakthrough technology to produce renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, today announced that it has jointly filed a non-provisional patent application along with the University of California, Santa Barbara (“UCSB”) for the “protection and stability of electroactive units used for production of fuels and chemicals.”

Tim Young, the company CEO, commented, “Recently, Honda and General Motors announced a partnership to bring hydrogen cars to the mass market by 2020. While this is great news for our industry, a major unsolved piece of the puzzle is the low cost production of renewable hydrogen for fueling stations. We believe that producing renewable hydrogen anywhere there is water and sunlight is the key to realizing a cost-effective hydrogen economy of fuel cell vehicles. We envision that fueling stations can be built next to self-contained solar hydrogen production plants using our low cost technology.”

HyperSolar’s research is centered on developing a low-cost and submersible hydrogen production particle that can split water molecules under the sun — without any other external systems or wires.

A key feature of this technology is the ability to allow the solar absorber to function while submerged in water, preventing photo-corrosion or short-circuiting. The polymer coating covered in this patent application has been proven in the laboratory to do just that. The first provisional patent application was filed in September of 2012. After a year of additional refinement and experiments, a final non-provisional application with detailed claims has been filed to formally start the patent review process by the patent office.

On October 21 HYSR announced that the Company has 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.

Self-contained sunlight driven water-splitting technology, also commonly referred to as “artificial photosynthesis,” typically produces hydrogen and oxygen gas bubbles in the same reactor. This hydrogen-oxygen gas mixture is potentially explosive and must be quickly separated from each other. Current gas separation technology uses selective membranes and is very expensive and the membranes need to frequently be replaced.

HyperSolar 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.

“Artificial photosynthesis and the concept of separating hydrogen from oxygen has been linked to having great ‘potential’ for some time,” said Tim Young, CEO of HyperSolar. “With this novel reactor design, we believe that we are much closer to eliminating the aspects of the hydrogen production process which many have considered unsafe, costly and inefficient. This breakthrough will support our ultimate goal of cost-effectively producing hydrogen fuel at or near the point of distribution, for use in both consumer and industrial industry sectors.”
