HyperSolar Inc (OTCMKTS:HYSR) moved a step closer to producing commercially viable hydrogen fuel after making a breakthrough in the splitting of water molecules to produce renewable hydrogen fuel. A recent study was successful in attaining the $1.4 volts milestone moving the company closer to using artificial photosynthesis to split water into hydrogen and oxygen.
The 1.4 volts achievement is a big milestone, HyperSolar Inc (OTCMKTS:HYSR) research team having struggled to generate $1.25 volts from the process. Plans are already in place to exceed the 1.5 volts the amount of voltage normally needed to split water in commercial systems.
HyperSolar Inc (OTCMKTS:HYSR) Iowa research team has already identified a low-cost process that will replace the relatively expensive vapor deposition process used to make the solar cell component. The breakthrough process should overcome the critical cost challenge that should allow the research team to focus more on developing a complete prototype of a self-contained solar powered hydrogen production unit. The prototype is to be used to develop an economical large-scale manufacturing process.
CEO, Tim Young, remains confident that they are making strides in the right direction as they move closer to developing cost-effective real world systems for producing hydrogen. The idea is to develop systems that can produce hydrogen by using only water and the power of the sun.
Readily Available Market
HyperSolar Inc (OTCMKTS:HYSR) remains confident that as commercial adoption widens in consumer markets for fuel cell vehicles, there will always be a readily available market for its products currently in the pipeline. The latest development comes on the heels of the ongoing paradigm shift in the auto industry with respect to alternative fuels
BMW is on course to release its 5 Series Grand Turismo Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle as Hyundai maintains that hydrogen powered vehicles could be the future of eco-friendly cars. The automotive industry is expected to provide the ready market for HyperSolar hydrogen fuel technology.
