Solarvest BioEnergy Inc.
Solarvest has proprietary technology that for the first time enables algae to produce hydrogen in a continuous cycle in a single vessel. Solarvest – in collaboration with leading university scientists - has developed and tested laboratory scale hydrogen production from genetically modified algae on a continuous cycle basis.
Solarvest’s goal is to further develop and scale up its algal-based “green” system for commercial hydrogen production. We will accomplish this using its patent-pending technology for developing genetically improved algae for large scale cultivation and harvesting of hydrogen.
An algal-based continuous cycle hydrogen production system will result in sustainable hydrogen production at an economical cost. The hydrogen can be used as a “gas” or used on algae farms to produce electricity. In the future portable power systems that require no input other than the sun will become a reality. The system will be flexible and can vary in size from small, on-site units that meet the hydrogen/electricity needs of a single facility, to large centralized production and distribution centers.
Hydrogen fuels can be used for direct energy use, compressed and stored, or for electricity generation such as in stationary fuel cells. In addition, this green technology will consistently generate carbon credits, which the company can sell or trade.
