The bridge to our low CO₂ future has methane pyrolysis at its core. This innovative process has the potential to revolutionize the way we generate heat and power. Methane pyrolysis is the thermal degradation of methane under high temperatures without oxygen. When optimized for emissions minimization, this process offers us a unique opportunity to produce clean and economic energy on a massive scale.

Methane Pyrolysis

Methane pyrolysis produces solid carbon that can either be disposed of naturally without affecting atmospheric CO2 or used as a raw material in industries like asphalt, medical devices, aerospace composite materials, and concrete.

So, not only can methane pyrolysis generate hydrogen that can help us prevent greenhouse gas emissions, but it can also offset some of the emissions associated with public works projects. Our ultra-low emission approach to pyrolysis delivers solid carbon with a low CO₂ rating. This means less virgin asphalt material used, less embodied emissions, and longer life products for a more sustainable built environment.

Methane Pyrolysis

With companies like Modern Hydrogen leading the way, methane pyrolysis is poised to play an indispensable role in the future of clean energy.
