Synthetic natural gas from electricity and tap water.
Hymeth has developed a non-precious metal electrocatalyst that efficiently splits water into hydrogen and oxygen to produce methane, a sustainable alternative to fossil natural gas. Using a readily-available, non-precious metal instead of a precious one, e.g. Platinum Iridium Black, reduces costs significantly. The company’s initial objective is to replace the standard liquid petroleum gas (LPG) used for cooking in most countries in the world with this methane.
