The patent protects the company’s semiconductor design which features high-density arrays of nano-size, high-voltage solar cells, which serves as the core of the start-up’s nanoparticle technology.
SunHydrogen revealed a first look at the prototype design of its nanoparticle-based green hydrogen technology which integrated its proprietary catalysts, light absorber, and membrane integration assembly, which is said to produce hydrogen by directly using electrical charges created by sunlight.
Currently active in the US, Australia, China, and Europe, the patent is jointly held between SunHydrogen and the Regents of the University of California, following a prior research agreement with the University of California, Santa Barbara.
Tim Young, CEO of SunHydrogen, said, “This patent protects the foundation of our technology. This most recent grant in India, alongside our existing grants in the US, Australia, China and Europe, underscores our commitment to protecting our intellectual property.”
