HyperSolar Inc (OTCMKTS:HYSR) continues to trade well and hold its gains after the run up the stock made recently off its base at $0.02. When a stock like HYSR starts to run especially on the kind of accumulation and volume we have seen in recent days investors need to pay attention; HYSR is a stock with a history of EPIC moves running from subs to $0.134 last year.
On March 3 the Company commented on the recent announcement from the California Energy Commission (CEC) to invest $20 million in pursuit of its plan to build enough stations to allow a driver of a hydrogen car to travel with ease around the entire state of California.
There are currently 10 hydrogen-fueling stations located in California, more than any other state in the US. Most of these stations are clustered in the Los Angeles and San Francisco regions, supporting hydrogen vehicles throughout the state. This investment from the CEC is anticipated to support the addition of nearly half of the 100 planned fuel station additions, the next being in October in the city of Coalinga, located in the San Joaquin Valley. According to California Energy Commissioner Janea A. Scott, the goal “is to match the number of stations to the number of cars coming in” and then let the market take over.
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.
By optimizing the science of water electrolysis at the nano-level, HYSR low-cost nanoparticles mimic photosynthesis to efficiently use sunlight to separate hydrogen from water to produce environmentally friendly renewable hydrogen. Using our low-cost method to produce renewable hydrogen, we intend to enable a world of distributed hydrogen production for renewable electricity and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
In recent news HYSR said that it had reached 1.25 volts (V), an important milestone achievement in its effort to split water molecules for the production of renewable hydrogen fuel.
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.
CEO of HYSR Tim Young said ”Our teams at the University of California, Santa Barbara and at the University of Iowa have been working diligently to achieve efficient renewable hydrogen production, our low cost, submersible semiconductor technology does not require a fossil fuel component, making the process truly as ‘green’ as possible. We are pleased that this milestone brings us one step closer to producing hydrogen fuel at or near the point of distribution, and at a cost reasonable enough to ensure industrial scalability.”
“The recent announcements from auto manufacturers, big box retailers, and the state of California, have created nationwide optimism for the future of hydrogen fuel technology. We believe our technology will support the industry as it strives to meet the growing public demand for renewable hydrogen fuel. Currently, most of the industry uses ‘brown’ hydrogen fuel, produced from natural gas, which emits significant amounts of carbon dioxide into the environment.”
