Developing new solutions to decrease greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the
effects of climate change is one of the great challenges of our time.
At Ekona, we are developing a revolutionary methane pyrolysis platform to produce industrial-scale hydrogen
that is both clean and low-cost.
Learn more about our breakthrough technology:
Ekona’s breakthrough technology is transforming the way
clean hydrogen is produced. Our patent-pending pulsed
methane pyrolysis (PMP) solution converts methane into
hydrogen and solid carbon, virtually eliminating CO2 emissions
from the process.
The pyrolysis reactor uses the principles of pulse-combustion
and high-speed gas dynamics to dissociate feedstock methane.
This unique solution is low-cost, scalable and solves carbon
fouling issues that plague other pyrolysis platforms for
The PMP reactor can be integrated with existing industry-standard
equipment for carbon separation and hydrogen purification,
simplifying industrial process integration. Finally, the PMP isn’t
reliant on CCS, renewable electricity, or water, so it can be flexibly
sited wherever natural gas infrastructure exists.
Market applications include:
Industrial H2 production
for upgrading, refining,
ammonia and chemicals
decarbonization for heat
and power applications
Value Proposition: Ekona's PMP solution produces hydrogen at costs
on par with incumbent SMRs, while reducing GHG emissions by 90%
Low Cost: The PMP reactor is based
on combustion and doesn't require
catalysts or exotic materials.
Scalable: The PMP platform can be
scaled for industrial applications.
Clean: The PMP reactor produces solid
carbon rather than CO2, reducing
greenhouse gas emissions.
Ease of Integration: The PMP
reactor integrates with industry
Flexible Siting: The PMP solution doesn't rely on CO2 sequestration, water feedstock or renewable electricity supply ... so it can be deployed wherever NG infrastructure exists.
