Our Process

Modern Hydrogen had developed a pyrolysis process that is low-energy, low-cost, and low-emission. Starting with natural gas or biogas, Modern systems heat that gas up and break off the carbon atoms, leaving behind hydrogen molecules. The process is thermally driven and catalyst free, which means a low electrical load compared to alternatives and simplified operations. Taking advantage of existing, reliable infrastructure to deliver methane to the point of use means there is no waiting for truck deliveries, no need for large high-pressure storage, and no limitations based on your power supply.

The Process of Converting Methane Sources to Usable Hydrogen and Carbon

We capture carbon from methane sources that would otherwise become CO2 emissions.

Our methane pyrolysis technology breaks down methane into hydrogen gas and solid carbon before combustion.

Hydrogen is available to be used for onsite heat, power, or feedstock. The carbon is removed by Modern to be sequestered in asphalt applications.


How Does Methane Pyrolysis Work?

Natural gas or biogas enters the system.

Methane is heated until it breaks into solid carbon and hydrogen.

The solid carbon and hydrogen are separated, and the carbon is removed from the system.

Modern Hydrogen recycles some hydrogen to continue powering the thermal process. The rest of the hydrogen is delivered for use in applications such as heating, mobility fueling, and power generation.


Hydrogen can potentially revolutionize energy production for electricity and transportation — a response to spiking oil prices and the escalating climate crisis. Modern Hydrogen is promising.”
