“We will be able to deliver hydrogen at $1 per kilogram later this decade”
Talmon Marco, CEO of H2Pro, believes his company’s technology can “significantly accelerate the solution or the move towards zero emissions”
“I believe that by developing H2Pro, by delivering hydrogen at scale, on mass, at a low cost we can significantly accelerate the solution or the move towards zero emissions in 2050 or who knows maybe earlier,” said Talmon Marco, CEO of Israeli startup H2Pro, which focuses on extracting hydrogen from water, in an interview with CTech at last week’s Calcalist Energy conference.
“H2Pro is a two-year-old startup here in Israel, based on technology developed in the Technion, one of Israel’s finest universities. What we do is we split water, water coming in hydrogen and oxygen coming out,” Marco explained. “What we do is a technology called E-TAC, without going into the nitty-gritty of how it works, when it comes to the outcome we are more efficient, we are looking at 95% efficiency versus 70% or less for other technologies, and the equipment cost is going to be significantly lower. And on top of that we operate in higher pressure and it is safer.
“We will be able to deliver hydrogen at $1 per kilogram later this decade, compared to industries hoping for around 2050,” he said.
