The CEO of renewable hydrogen company HyperSolar, Tim Young, and lead researcher Dr Syed Mubeen addressed the benefits of using a nanoparticle strategy for solar hydrogen production at a workshop in India on November 6th.
HyperSolar CEO Tim Young and University of Iowa Assistant Professor and Lead Researcher Dr. Syed Mubeen participated in the November 6th “Workshop on Scale up of Hydrogen Production through Photo-Electro-Chemical (PEC) Water Splitting” at the Indian Oil Corporation’s Research and Development Centre in Faridabad, India.
Mr Young presented ‘Advancing Renewable H2 Production Technology Through Development of Inexpensive NanoH2 Generators’ while Syed Mubeen presented ‘Design of High- Efficiency Large Scale Photo-Electro- Chemical Devices for Hydrogen Production Through Water Splitting’.
The event was hosted by the Indian Oil Corporation’s (IOC) Alternative Energy Department and brought together over 60 researchers and scientists in the field of hydrogen generation, with an emphasis on collaborating to spur the renewable hydrogen technology development cycle. This is something in which IOC is playing a pivotal role.
Other speakers at the event included Dr. Nathan Neale and Dr. Todd G. Deutsch, two senior scientists with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL); Dr. Sanjay Mathur from the University of Cologne, Germany; Dr. Thomas Fischer director of Materials Alliance Cologne and of Steinbeis GmbH, Cologne, Germany; and Dr. Kirtiman Deo Malviya, Scholar at Department of Materials, Science and Engineering Technion at the Israel Institute of Technology.
“Collaborations like this are the key to bringing these technologies to scale, not only advancing the companies that develop them, but helping to move forward the entire renewable hydrogen industry” said Dr. Mubeen, Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Iowa and HyperSolar’s Lead Researcher. “This opportunity to discuss our technology on a global stage shows the progress and scientific foundation we have achieved over the past year.”
Tim Young, CEO of HyperSolar, added that the Research & Development Centre at IOC is leading the way in developing hydrogen fuel solutions for various consumer and industrial applications in India, where there is a significant and unmet need for clean fuel to address environmental pollution.
