A pathway to renewable hydrogen is discussed in a recently published article by Tina Casey in Clean Technica’s January 14th edition ” How Low Cost Wind & Solar Push The Market for Renewable Hydrogen” featuring Dioxide Materials’ and Alchemr’s water electrolyzer technology.
U.S. Patent 10,147,974 “BATTERY SEPARATOR MEMBRANE AND BATTERY EMPLOYING SAME” was issued on Dec 4, 2018. It claims the use of amine functionalized Styrene/Vinylbenzylchloride membranes in batteries. It also claims 18 different methods to reduce the metal cross-over through the membranes.
An article that was published recently in the Journal of The Electrochemical Society, “Carbon Dioxide Electrolysis to CO and O2 at High Selectivity, Stability and Efficiency Using Sustainion Membranes”, illustrates how carbon dioxide (CO2) electrolysis using renewable energy as an input provides a pathway to turn waste CO2 into valuable fuels and chemicals. This article describes how the effect of … Read More
Japanese Patent No. 6059140 has been issued (Novel Catalyst Mixtures). Electrochemical devices comprising electro-catalyst mixtures include at least one Catalytically Active Element and, as a separate constituent, one Helper Catalyst. The electrocatalysts can be used to increase the rate, modify the selectivity or lower the overpotential of chemical reactions. These electrocatalysts are useful for a variety of chemical reactions including, … Read More
Australian patent AU2014218628 was allowed on October 5, 2018. The patent describes an environmentally beneficial method for preparing a process for forming acrylic acid that does not use Propylene as a feedstock. Instead, it describes a process to convert CO2 and water to acrylic acid. Shortcomings and limitations of existing processes are overcome by a process for the production of organic acids having at … Read More
