What is Conventional Green Hydrogen Energy?

Conventional green hydrogen technologies use electricity derived from solar and/or wind farms to produce hydrogen using an electrolyser

Revolutionary technology to transform global hydrogen production

Sparc Ultra-Green Hydrogen does not use solar and/or wind farms, nor electrolysis as with conventional green hydrogen – only photocatalyst and solar radiation.

  • Next Generation Globally Disruptive, Ultra-Green Hydrogen technology developed by University of Adelaide and Flinders University.
  • Ultra-Green Hydrogen produced directly from sunlight and water
  • Photocatalytic water splitting coupled with solar radiation used to produce hydrogen
  • Predicted very low CAPEX and OPEX
  • No electrolysis required
  • Not producing electricity to split water to produce Hydrogen
  • Overcomes key obstacle of green hydrogen production
  • Allows for massive energy efficiencies and ultra cost competitive advantage
  • Potential low cost alternative to current industry practice of steam methane reforming with vastly lower carbon footprint
  • Research ongoing to incorporate graphene into the photocatalyst

Sparc Ultra-Green Hydrogen Benefits

Lower CAPEX- wind and/or solar farms not required

Lower OPEX – no electricity required to produce Hydrogen

Can be adopted on a smaller scale without wind and/or solar farms – smaller land footprint

Can be utilised directly on location e.g. mine sites, industrial locations and domestically
