Through cooperative alliances, Acceleware is trying to create new CTI industrial heating applications.
Collaboration between Acceleware and Aurora Hydrogen Inc. is the first step in this endeavor. Aurora will use methane pyrolysis to create CTI-powered pure hydrogen.
The cooperative nature of Acceleware’s CTI growth approach enables the Company to keep its attention on the effective completion of the Pilot and the ensuing commercialization of RF XL technology, while also utilizing the power of its CTI for additional high-value use cases.
The Acceleware and Aurora collaboration effort will seek to demonstrate efficiency improvements as a result of the use of Acceleware’s proprietary and patent-pending silicon carbide (“SiC”) CTI as the energy source for Aurora’s patent-pending pyrolysis process while improving cost efficiencies at a large scale. The goal is to significantly accelerate the time to commercialization for an exceptionally competitive clean hydrogen product.
Acceleware and Aurora have started preliminary testing and design work as they look for financing for this integration effort. Acceleware is looking into new options to finance the development of CTI technologies and plans to make use of its previous experience in acquiring non-dilutive capital.
Using a very effective radio frequency (RF) energy delivery system, Acceleware’s CTI is a field-tested, patented industrial heating technology platform that could make it possible to decarbonize expensive industrial heating operations that release a lot of carbon dioxide. Utilizing cutting-edge SiC technology, the patent-pending CTI heating “engine” achieves over 98 percent power to RF energy conversion efficiency. CTI is highly scalable, adaptable to a variety of industrial heating applications, and dependable.
In order to eliminate the need for expensive hydrogen transportation, Aurora is developing a technique that will produce inexpensive, pure hydrogen right at the point of consumption. Without needing water or emitting any CO2, Aurora’s technology converts natural gas into hydrogen and solid carbon utilizing the efficient microwave or radio-frequency energy.
