HyperSolar, an innovative technology developer for generating renewable natural gas from sunlight, has explained that being eco-friendly is essential to reduce the cost of production.
A new two-step method of the company has cleaned the waste streams and has utilized captured CO2 for producing inexpensive renewable natural gas.
Usage of pure water in making clean energy will increase the cost. Therefore, the company is making use of its new technology to treat the wastewater such as industrial and municipal wastewater that has all types of organic molecules. When the wastewater is subjected to photo-oxidation, HyperSolar’s new process simultaneously generates clean water and hydrogen. In another arrangement, this technology can process the waste steams, which contain acids like hydrogen chloride and hydrogen bromide from industrial units, to make pure chlorine and bromine, which are expensive and commercial byproducts.
The initial step in this new method is that a nanoparticle system, powered by solar, mimics the process of photosynthesis that splits hydrogen from wastewater. Then, in the second step, the separated hydrogen reacts with the captured CO2, which is a negative value stream, for generating pipeline ready methane.
The CEO of HyperSolar, Tim Young, stated that many alternative energy making methods are costly and needs financial assistance to contend in the market. This new green method of producing renewable natural gas decreases the cost. This two-step procedure turns the company as one of the globe’s greenest energy solutions.
