Cutting-edge quantum-technology backed green hydrogen production unveiled to power a green future

Newdelhi:11/10/23:A new high throughput quantum-backed green hydrogen production technology could boost green hydrogen production in bulk.

The technology developed by the Green Keplerate Team from Banaras Hindu University was inaugurated at the University in Varanasi, by Dr. Anita Gupta, Head of the Climate Change & Clean Energy Division, DST & Dr. Ranjith Krishna Pai, Scientist & Director of Climate Change & Clean Energy Division, DST and Prof. R. R. Sonde, Chairman of the expert committee, IIT Delhi in the presence of eminent domain experts drawn from all over the country.

The technology developed by the team comprising Dr. Somenath Garai and Prof. S. Srikrishna showcased the uses of Green Hydrogen as an eco-friendly energy alternative. They introduced next-generation quantum-powered photo-catalyst with a charge transfer system coupled with high proton availability and mobility and delivered quantum catalytic applications for energy generation.

The patent for this technology, supported under the project titled “Boosting the H2 Economy by Harnessing the Merits of Quantum Encapsulation Chemistry: Augmented Kinetics for Water Splitting Reaction Under Confinement” under the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell program, Clean Energy Research Initiative, is pending.

green future

The state-of-the-art photochemical reactor design features built-in illumination assembly and external concave reflective panels to maximize the capture of solar energy. The team has engineered a continuous electron-coupled proton supply system, propelled with an electron injector mechanism utilizing industrial metal waste, and after rigorous optimizations, the peak rate of Green Hydrogen production at lab scale was achieved to be about 1 liter/min per 10 g of Quantum Photocatalysts.

Due to the high purity of the hydrogen gas produced, the fuel can be used without additional purification, thus enhancing the cost-effectiveness of the technology. This transformative innovation would offer wide-ranging application possibilities across various sectors ranging from energy production to applications in transportation and agriculture.

The Green Keplerate Team has envisaged storage-free direct hydrogen internal combustion engine technologies and has also demonstrated the same onto automobiles of a varied range of engine/cylinder capacities and functionalities as a part of this ongoing project funded by the DST.
