The eXEROTM (Electroless Coupled Exchange Reduction Oxidation) Process is a ‘solid step forward’ in the decarbonisation and increased sustainability of the global energy market, the company says.
H2 View understands Utility Global will now be ‘moving rapidly’ to commercialise the platform into different product lines.
Utility Global is an innovator in sustainable hydrogen, based upon its breakthrough eXEROTM technology and with an executive leadership team with extensive experience in the industrial gases business – where over a century of expertise in producing, handling and applying hydrogen has been nurtured.
The company’s proprietary eXEROTM process marks the first time the energy industry has seen a zero-electricity electrolysis process to convert sustainable waste streams directly into high-purity, low-cost hydrogen.
The process is achieved by removing the external electrical circuit from an electrolyser and instead driving the electrolysis reaction with the over-potential (voltage) that exists between different gas compositions.
Similar to a conventional solid oxide electrolyser, water is reduced at the cathode into hydrogen and oxygen ions. The oxygen ions are then transferred through an oxygen ion-conducting electrolyte. However, unlike a conventional electrochemical reactor, electrons are transferred through an electronically conducting phase within the electrolyte, rather than via an external circuit.
The eXERO Process will be at the heart of Utility Global’s product offerings focused on next-gen fuelling, green chemicals, and sustainable steel and refining industries, and CEO Claus Nussgruber enthused, “We get up in the morning and come to work with one thing in mind – to deliver disruptive technology solutions that overcome legacy sustainability challenges.
“Every single member of this team is passionate to do things differently, to change the world through a more inquisitive, a more elegant view into technology development.”
