HyperSolar, Inc. Key Developments
HyperSolar, Inc. Announces Impressive Catalyst Stability for Solar Hydrogen Production
Feb 7 18
HyperSolar, Inc. announced a significant improvement of its proprietary low-cost 3-dimensional oxygen catalyst. The amount of hydrogen produced by water splitting is fundamentally limited by the slower oxygen half reaction. Developing an efficient and stable oxygen catalyst is an important milestone in the company's effort to split water molecules for the production of renewable hydrogen. Recent catalyst optimization and performance testing by HyperSolar and the University of Iowa demonstrated its high efficiency oxygen catalyst working for over 190 hours, and still running without loss of efficiency. In comparison to existing photo-electrochemical technologies, this represents a significant advancement in terms of stability for catalysts made of entirely inexpensive earth abundant elements.
HyperSolar, Inc. Extends Research Agreement with University of Iowa
May 16 17
HyperSolar, Inc. extended its sponsored research agreement with the University of Iowa, the site of company's most recent breakthroughs and video documentation demonstrating the technological advancement and capabilities of its renewable hydrogen producing technology. The extended agreement with the University of Iowa will maintain the relationship through May 31, 2018. HyperSolar and its scientific collaborators at the University of Iowa, and University of California Santa Barbara, continue its mission of producing completely 'renewable' hydrogen during a period of high growth for the hydrogen industry.
Hypersolar, Inc. Announces Development of an Efficient and Low-Cost Catalyst for Oxygen Production an Important Half Reaction of Water-Splitting for Hydrogen Production
May 9 17
HyperSolar, Inc. announced the successful development of an efficient and low-cost catalyst for oxygen production an important half reaction of water-splitting for hydrogen production. The amount of hydrogen produced by water splitting is fundamentally limited by the slower oxygen half reaction. Developing an efficient oxygen catalyst is an important milestone in the Company’s effort to split water molecules for the production of renewable hydrogen. Currently best performing oxygen catalysts are mostly made of rare earth elements such as iridium and ruthenium. There has been numerous research focused on developing highly efficient oxygen catalysts using earth abundant materials, however development of a catalyst satisfying all of the above characteristics has remained elusive. Currently the team is further optimizing the catalyst to reach 90% of the efficiency of iridium based catalysts, while simultaneously optimizing the catalyst deposition process on a commercially available amorphous silicon solar cell, as part of a commercial prototype under development.
