A small molecule with large ideas, hydrogen is often touted for its capabilities as a fuel for electric vehicles. Beyond a zero-emissions car, hydrogen can be used for so much more including industrial, agriculture, and energy applications.
Hydrogen is used in industrial applications such as gas welding, the creation of ultraviolet (UV) lamps, chemicals, textile fibers, glass, electronics, fertilizers, and metallurgy.
In energy, hydrogen is used in many gas refining applications with two of the most important being sulfur removal to produce cleaner fuels and in hydrocracking to break long-chain hydrocarbons into shorter ones. Hydrogen is also used in nuclear reactors to create energy, cooling rotors in generators, rocket fuel, and as fuel in hydrogen fuel cell technology.
While hydrogen is the most commonly occurring element on our planet, it does not exist anywhere in a pure form, which means it must be produced from other compounds. With a focus on green hydrogen, CleanCap Technologies has the technology and expertise to do just that.
