Nature Magazine Highlights HyperSolar's Breakthrough Hydrogen Technology

Article points out progress in the quest to make hydrogen fuel from the power of the sun

SANTA BARBARA, CA – June 10, 2014 -HyperSolar, Inc. (OTCQB: HYSR), the developer of a breakthrough technology to produce renewable hydrogen using sunlight and water, announced today that Nature Magazine, one of the most prominent publications read primarily by research scientists, has highlighted the HyperSolar technology in its June Issue. 

The recently published article, ‘Solar energy: Springtime for the artificial leaf’, details scientific breakthroughs in developing photons into renewable fuel. The article provides an overview of HyperSolar technology, before stating, “A 2009 DOE report estimated that, if it uses cheap materials, this 'baggie' approach could produce hydrogen economically with 10% efficiency, stable for 10 years.” In addition to HyperSolar, the article references several organizations and technologies, including the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP), a 190-person research program funded by the US Department of Energy.

“We are very encouraged by the recent media coverage of not just HyperSolar, but the entire hydrogen fuel industry,” said Tim Young, CEO of HyperSolar. “With so many positive announcements from automobile manufacturers, big-box retailers, and other industries funding and pursuing hydrogen fuel technology, we are pleased to be part of the narrative. As the demand for hydrogen increases, it is important to have a truly “green” method of production versus the most common form of hydrogen production, which uses various fossil fuels as a feedstock. Our goal has always been to develop a viable option for renewable hydrogen fuel that can be produced at or near the point of use.”


About HyperSolar, Inc.

HyperSolar is developing a breakthrough, low cost technology to make renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, including seawater and wastewater. Unlike hydrocarbon fuels, such as oil, coal and natural gas, where carbon dioxide and other contaminants are released into the atmosphere when used, hydrogen fuel usage produces pure water as the only byproduct. By optimizing the science of water electrolysis at the nano-level, our low cost nanoparticles mimic photosynthesis to efficiently use sunlight to separate hydrogen from water, to produce environmentally friendly renewable hydrogen. Using our low cost method to produce renewable hydrogen, we intend to enable a world of distributed hydrogen production
