Aurora Hydrogen raises $10M

Aurora Hydrogen, a business researching emission-free hydrogen production technology based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, raised $10 million USD in Series A funding.

Energy Innovation Capital led the financing, while Williams, Shell Ventures, Chevron Technology Ventures, and the George Kaiser Family Foundation also participated. The researchers had secured extra money from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) earlier this year.

The company wants to use the funding to construct and run a 200 kg-H2/day demonstration facility in Edmonton, Canada, for field experiments.

Aurora Hydrogen, led by CEO Andrew Gillis, is creating a clean hydrogen manufacturing method that use efficient microwave radiation without emitting CO2 or consuming water. Units of the scalable technology can supply a wide range of applications, including distributed fueling, hydrogen injection, and industrial processes.
