EAST HARTFORD, Conn. – Feb. 14, 2017 – PRLog — Sustainable Innovations, Inc. (SI) and its partners, Greenway Energy and Savannah River National Laboratory, will team to maximize the benefits of two cutting edge hydrogen compressor technologies by combining them into one high reliability, high efficiency hybrid compressor. This important R&D effort will address one of the most stubborn problems plaguing the hydrogen fueling industry – how to cost effectively compress hydrogen for storage on board a vehicle. Conventional compressor technology has proven less than optimal for hydrogen fueling in early fuel cell vehicle markets like California. According to the Department of Energy, the poor reliability of mechanical compressors is related to operating conditions at the hydrogen stations for which mechanical compressors were not designed.
Sustainable Innovations today announced the appointment of Jon Melzer and Walter (Chip) Schroeder as independent directors of the firm. “Our Board members embody the spirit of entrepreneurship, governance and the highest levels of experience. They bring talent, energy, industry and financial expertise to bear upon our success. We are very fortunate to have them by our side as we continue to commercialize technology in the advanced energy market space, and we’re grateful for the benefit of their counsel” said Dr. Trent Molter, Founder, President and CEO.
Sustainable Innovations, Inc. (SI) is developing an electrochemical system that addresses multiple challenges and opportunities in the energy supply marketplace. The CO2RENEW™ converts waste CO2 and H2O to methane fuel, the primary energy carrier in natural gas. This fuel can then be stored or transported in the existing natural gas pipeline to points of need.
EAST HARTFORD, Conn. – Jan. 10, 2017 – PRLog — Sustainable Innovations (SI) is teaming with the University of Connecticut Center for Clean Energy Engineering (UConn C2E2) to meet a critical need in the rollout of hydrogen vehicles. They have teamed up to develop a breakthrough hydrogen fuel quality sensor that will rapidly assess whether a fuel supply stream is meeting a vehicle’s needs for high performance, reliable operation.
EAST HARTFORD, Conn. – June 24, 2016 – PRLog — Sustainable Innovations received a contract from NASA to supply a commercial-scale system to recycle helium, a resource that is in scarce supply. Ongoing rocket test operations at NASA Stennis Space Center (SSC) result in valuable helium gas being vented to the atmosphere, in addition to the substantial quantity of hydrogen gas that is flared upon completion of a rocket test cycle. The price of helium has increased substantially in recent years, along with the interest in finding an efficient and economical method of helium recovery. Sustainable Innovations’ Helium Recovery System (HRS) selectively removes hydrogen from the helium purge gas used in rocket fueling operations, allowing the high-value helium to be recovered for reuse. Recovery of hydrogen from the waste stream is an added benefit that increases savings.
Sustainable Innovations’ H2RENEW™ system was recently featured in NASA Spinoff, an annual publication that features a number of NASA technologies that have transformed into commercial products and services. The H2RENEW™ is an electrochemical system that efficiently separates and compresses hydrogen using Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) technology for many industrial applications, including hydrogen-helium separation, hydrogen compression, and hydrogen recycling.
EAST HARTFORD, Conn. & NEW YORK – Nov. 3, 2015 – PRLog — Sustainable Innovations is pleased to announce it has been awarded a Phase II SBIR contract from NASA to develop a hydrogen resource recovery system (HRR). Sustainable Innovations’ signature electrochemical platform provides a long-awaited solution to NASA’s search for an efficient gas separation technology to recover and purify hydrogen from a combined gas stream containing water vapor, carbon monoxide (CO), and hydrocarbons (including methane, acetylene, ethane, ethylene and others). The novel HRR will purify the co-generated hydrogen which is part of a crewmember life support system on long duration space missions. The HRR will meet NASA requirements by delivering a fresh, pressurized, re-supply of hydrogen from a waste stream of “used” hydrogen, at a reduced logistics cost and less complexity
EAST HARTFORD, Conn. – Oct. 21, 2015 – PRLog — Sustainable Innovations, a world leader in electrochemical hydrogen separation and compression technology, is pleased to announce its award of a 2015 NASA Phase I SBIR to further develop its Helium Recovery System (HRS) technology for use at NASA Stennis Space Center (SSC).
EAST HARTFORD, Conn. – Oct. 5, 2015 – PRLog — Sustainable Innovations LLC, a world leader in electrochemical hydrogen separation and compression, today announced it has been selected for a project supported by the National Science Foundation to advance the integration of the recently acquired H2Pump LLC technology into the Sustainable Innovations’ H2RENEW™ hydrogen purification product portfolio. The project will facilitate Sustainable Innovations advancement of its commercial product line by evaluating specific feed chemistries typical of the metals heat treating industry, demonstrating system “up-time” in a metals heat treating environment, and evaluating system performance and reliability.
EAST HARTFORD, Conn., March 31, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Sustainable Innovations, a world leader in electrochemical hydrogen separation and compression technology, today announced that it has acquired key assets of H2Pump LLC, a company that specialized in the recovery and reuse of industrial waste hydrogen, to become the leading provider of industrial hydrogen recycling systems.
