Hydrogen Shot Prize Results
This team designed a system that integrates light-activated nanoparticles with an enzyme to produce clean hydrogen from sunlight.
Gold Hydrogen Team
This team designed a process using dark fermentation to biologically produce hydrogen in spent oil wells.
This team designed a system that integrates solar energy with algal hydrothermal liquefaction and microbial electrolysis to generate clean hydrogen, leveraging the chemical energy from organic matter.
Evolve Hydrogen Inc.
East Northport, NY
This team designed a novel electrolyzer system design that can use seawater as a feedstock without the need for precious metal materials.
Palo Alto, CA
This team designed a system that integrates high-temperature solid oxide electrolyzers with thermal energy storage to enable continuous hydrogen production even when using intermittent renewable resources.
Biomass Super Gasifier
This team designed an indirectly-heated pyrolytic gasification process to convert carbon-based feedstocks into syngas from which hydrogen can be extracted—with the remaining syngas used in a solid oxide fuel cell to generate power to run the system.
NX Fuels Inc.
Ann Arbor, MI
This team designed a technology that harnesses sunlight to produce hydrogen from seawater using a photoelectrochemical process.
This team designed a technology that could reduce the capital and operating expenses of an electrolysis system by producing clean water using waste heat from the electrolyzer.
The Hope Group
This team designed in-situ microwave-assisted catalytic heating to crack methane¬ and generate hydrogen directly from depleted natural gas reservoirs.
