HyperSolar to produce bio hydrogen, renewable natural gas from solar power, wastewater

March 16, 2012 |

In California, HyperSolar has released their plan to produce renewable hydrogen and natural gas using water and solar power, leading to unveiling a prototype by early 2013.  Their planned milestones to do this include: a proof-of-concept microparticle for hydrogen production using conventional photovoltaic elements, analysis of the feedstock potential of multiple wastewater sources, a complete photoreactor prototype for sustained hydrogen production, and design of nanoparticles using low-cost semiconducting materials.

The company states that after the hydrogen nanoparticles are optimized, the process of reacting hydrogen with carbon dioxide to make a renewable natural gas is relatively straightforward.
