HyperSolar Inc (OTCMKTS:HYSR) saw a recent surge in volume and price after the Company announced a milestone achievement in completing a newly designed hydrogen generation prototype that can be scaled to commercial size for the production of renewable hydrogen at or near the point of distribution.
The stock has been seeing more action since the Company was able to nearly triple photocurrents in its novel solar cell, an important breakthrough to increase the rate of hydrogen (“H2”) production as the Company seeks to scale its technology to support real world energy applications. HYSR 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 September 28 HYSR announced a milestone achievement in completing a newly designed hydrogen generation prototype that can be scaled to commercial size for the production of renewable hydrogen at or near the point of distribution.
The complete working prototype device and accompanying video showcases renewable hydrogen produced directly using polluted water from the Salton Sea in Imperial County California. When exposed to sunlight, water molecules are split into hydrogen in one chamber and oxygen in the other, a process very important to the success of the technology due to the explosive potency of the mixture. Additionally, the waste in the water is actually broken down, therefore cleaning up the contaminated Salton Sea water used in the process.
The patent-pending device design contains HyperSolar’s proprietary hydrogen production particle which consists of a high voltage solar cell encapsulated in a protective catalyst coating, integrated into a membrane separator.

Currently trading at a $6.7 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.
