Carbon-negative, low-cost hydrogen power: The Digest’s 2017 Multi-Slide Guide to Proton Power

Carbon-negative, low-cost hydrogen power: The Digest’s 2017 Multi-Slide Guide to Proton Power

March 29, 2017 |

As Proton Power CEO Sam Weaver explains: “This process is carbon-negative, producing hydrogen gas or liquid fuels, plus a high temp biochar that is very stable in the ground. It’s a high PH (10-11) biochar with a surface area like an activated carbon.” Here’s the big takeaway: “Fundamentally, if we can get feedstock lower than $40/ton […]
