On-site Generation of Clean Hydrogen
Over one third of US domestic CO2 emissions come from burning natural gas for heat and electricity. Meanwhile, heat for Commercial and Industrial (C&I) operations represents 25% of total carbon dioxide pollution in the USA. Reducing the CO2 footprint associated with energy consumption from C&I sectors is critically important for national security, domestic economic health, and climate stability.

Unfortunately, electrification alone is not a realistic option for wide scale decarbonization of C&I heat for at least two decades. (1) Heating C&I operations with electricity is more expensive than natural gas. (2) Industrial energy users have massive installed asset bases with legacy natural gas fueled hardware. (3) There is not enough electrical infrastructure to distribute the energy needed to electrify these heating loads. (4) Electrical generation capacity (renewable, natural gas, coal, or nuclear) is insufficient to supply both existing electrical loads and additive C&I heating loads for the foreseeable future.
Modern Hydrogen solves this problem. By removing carbon from natural gas at the point of use, Modern Hydrogen technologies leverage the versatility and reliability of existing natural gas infrastructure to deliver low CO2 fuels for heat and power in the most difficult-to-decarbonize commercial and industrial operations.
Low cost, Carbon Sequestering Materials
Modern Carbon products reduce material costs and improve performance in concrete, asphalt, and rubber. Our ultra-low emission approach to pyrolysis delivers solid carbon with the industry’s lowest embodied CO2 rating. This means less material used, less embodied emissions, and longer life products for a more sustainable built environment.
