California company to produce hydrogen using wastewater, sunlight

A California-based company is developing the world's first nanotechnology-based process for producing hydrogen and natural gas using sunlight.

Conventional hydrogen technology splits water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen, an expensive process.

HyperSolar, which has been developing a technology to produce renewable hydrogen and natural gas using sunlight, water and carbon dioxide, it has come up with a process of producing hydrogen by making nanoparticles function as one-way machines for detoxifying wastewater. This results in clean water, which is turned into hydrogen in the presence of sunlight.

Requiring no other energy source, it makes the process an economical and commercially viable approach for the production of hydrogen, the company said.

"Starting with a negative value feedstock in the form of wastewater and operating in low cost reactors, we believe that our artificial photosynthesis process of extracting hydrogen from water will be cost effective," said Tim Young, HyperSolar chief executive.

HyperSolar has entered into an agreement with the University of California, Santa Barbara to improve the process. A prototype is set to be unveiled in 2013. – EcoSeed Staff
