Pyrolysis for Clean Hydrogen and 2 High-Value Carbon
Clean hydrogen from natural gas
PARC and collaborators are developing a clean-hydrogen alternative based on the pyrolysis of natural gas to produce H2 and sequestered, solid carbon. Our unique approach uses the condensation of zinc to produce a high- surface-area catalyst. Additionally, PARC and UC Riverside are developing a process to upgrade pyrolysis output carbon to a high-value crystalline carbon. This additional revenue stream together with PARC’s efficient process can make pyrolysis a cost-effective alternative to current dirty hydrogen production methods.
Our work is centered around a series of Focus Areas that we believe are the future of science and technology.
We’re continually developing new technologies, many of which are available for Commercialization.
PARC scientists and staffers are active members and contributors to the science and technology communities.
