HyperSolar Reports Successful Testing of Protective Coating for Solar to Renewable Hydrogen Conversion Process

Organic, earth abundant, and inexpensive coating stabilizes inorganic photoelectrodes allowing for constant solar to fuel conversion from wastewater

SANTA BARBARA, Calif.--HyperSolar, Inc. (OTCBB: HYSR), the developer of a breakthrough technology to produce renewable hydrogen using water and solar power, today announced it has reached a significant milestone in protecting and stabilizing its solar nanoparticles used in the production of renewable hydrogen.


"A big hurdle in using a solar to fuel conversion process is the stabilization of the semiconductor material against photocorrosion," said Tim Young, CEO of HyperSolar. "Our development of an efficient and low cost protective polymer coating that also allows good electrical conductivity is a significant achievement in our development of a cost effective means for using the power of the Sun to extract renewable hydrogen from water."

Unlike conventional expensive hydrogen technology that splits water molecules (H20) into hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2), HyperSolar is developing a low cost nanotechnology approach that facilitates H2 with the help of wastewater. The HyperSolar nanoparticles function as one-way machines that detoxify wastewater, and produce clean water and pure hydrogen in the presence of sunlight. No other energy source is required, making this an extremely economical and commercially viable approach for the production of zero-carbon, renewable hydrogen.

HyperSolar recently entered into a yearlong sponsored research agreement with the University of California, Santa Barbara to help accelerate the development process and assure that the key milestones are reached.

About HyperSolar, Inc.

HyperSolar is developing a breakthrough technology to produce renewable hydrogen using sunlight and water. Renewable hydrogen, the cleanest and greenest of all fuels, can be used as direct replacement for traditional hydrogen, which is usually produced by reforming of natural gas. No need for drilling or fracking and no CO2 emissions. Inspired by photosynthesis that plant life uses to effortlessly harness the power of the Sun, we are developing a novel solar-powered nanoparticle system that mimics photosynthesis to produce renewable hydrogen from water. From sunrise to sunset, our proprietary nanoparticles will work in a water based solution to produce clean and environmentally friendly renewable hydrogen for industrial and vehicles - anywhere and anytime.
