NewHydrogen’s Revolutionary Single Atom Catalyst Shows Better Performance Than Platinum in the Lab… | National


The company’s high-performance, low-cost, single-atom catalyst for alkaline hydrogen electrolyzers has demonstrated superior catalytic capacity and improved stability compared to commercial platinum-based catalysts

SANTA CLARITA, Calif., April 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NewHydrogen, Inc. (OTC:NEWH), the developer of a green hydrogen generator, today provided an update on the progress of its catalyst technology to reduce the cost of producing green hydrogen.

The latest results from NewHydrogen-sponsored research at UCLA show significant progress toward the goal of producing low-cost green hydrogen by replacing or dramatically reducing the use of precious metals in electrolysers. Electrolysers, at the heart of green hydrogen generators, currently rely on expensive rare materials such as iridium and platinum. The Company is focused on developing cheaper and better electrolyser catalysts.

In recent tests, single atom catalysts for hydrogen evolution reactions (HER) that do not use platinum have been directly compared to commercial platinum-based HER catalysts. In the practical range of metal loading, the single atom catalyst was always found to have lower overvoltage with higher mass activity. In the stability test, the catalyst was significantly more stable than a commercial platinum-based HER catalyst.

“The high durability over prolonged use together with its superior catalytic capacity compared to commercial platinum-based HER catalysts make our catalyst an ideal replacement for platinum in alkaline hydrogen electrolyzers and, more importantly, in the exchange membrane of “anion (AEM) electrolyzers in the future. Not only is our HER catalyst feedstock cheaper than platinum, but our single-atom catalyst outperforms platinum,” said Dr. David Lee, CEO of NewHydrogen.

“In the future, we plan to incorporate this revolutionary catalyst into a complete prototype electrolyser. We will continue to explore further improvements to optimize overall performance,” Dr. Lee said.

NewHydrogen recently announced that it will deploy its own green hydrogen generator which will allow it to demonstrate its economic viability and a new technology under development. This will provide another test site for the Company’s HER catalysts for alkaline electrolysers.

About NewHydrogen, Inc.

NewHydrogen is developing a revolutionary green hydrogen generator that uses renewable energy to produce green hydrogen at low cost. Hydrogen is the cleanest and most abundant fuel in the universe. It is zero emissions and only produces water vapor when in use. Unfortunately, hydrogen does not exist in its pure form on Earth, so it must be extracted from a source containing hydrogen. For centuries, scientists have known how to separate water into hydrogen and oxygen using a simple and elegant device called an electrolyzer. Unfortunately, an electrolyzer – the main component of a hydrogen generator – is still very expensive. NewHydrogen develops breakthrough technologies to enable the next generation of low cost electrolysers. The company’s initial goal is to replace and reduce expensive rare-earth materials, to help usher in the green hydrogen economy that Goldman Sachs estimates has a future market value of $12 trillion.
