HyperSolar, Inc. Key Developments

HyperSolar Files Patent, Releases Video Demonstration of Complete Hydrogen Generator Device

HyperSolar, Inc. 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 protective coating has been demonstrated to allow hydrogen production to run for hundreds of hours in very corrosive water, without damage. To fully demonstrate fuel cell capabilities, the produced hydrogen is connected to a fuel cell that converts hydrogen into usable electricity, ultimately facilitating electrical power to illuminate the two light bulbs.

HyperSolar, Inc. Names John Stickney as Scientific Advisor

HyperSolar, Inc. announced that it has appointed John Stickney to the role of Scientific Advisor to the company as it seeks to scale its hydrogen production technology. John Stickney currently serves at the University of Georgia within the Department of Chemistry, focusing on Electrochemistry, Materials Chemistry and Nanoscience practices. Stickney will provide experience and guidance in further developing the synthesis of the high quality semiconductor materials that serve as critical components in the hydrogen production device for absorbing sun light and efficiently converting light energy into charge carriers for the production of hydrogen. This will entail developing chemistries for electrodeposition of Chalcogenide semiconductors on different surfaces, such as metals, metal oxides, and other semiconductors. He will also share strategies for using his UGA developed electrochemical-atomic layer deposition (EC-ALD) technique, a methodology used academically and industrially worldwide for fabricating high quality single crystalline thin film deposits.

HyperSolar, Inc. Appoints Yat Li as Scientific Advisor

HyperSolar, Inc. announced that it has appointed Dr. Yat Li, an Associate Professor of Chemistry with University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC), as Scientific Advisor to the company. Dr. Li has significant experience in exploring and developing hydrogen fuel producing technologies. In 2009, Dr. Li and other researches from UCSC began developing a concept that created hydrogen fuel by exposing treated wastewater to sunlight.
