Forbes contributor, Sandra Ponce De Leon: “For more information on distributed generation - I spoke with Josiah Nelson, Chairman and CEO at Trolysis, a renewable energy company producing on-site, on-demand hydrogen power from aluminum and water. At times of low energy status in the network, namely when the batteries are discharged and the applied generators (such as photovoltaic, wind, or microhydro power plants) cannot supply energy, hydrogen fuel cells can be activated - creating more efficient, reliable energy sources.”Read More
Through the simple orchestration of a series of chemical reactions, a newly-launched startup, Trolysis, is able to split the molecules or ordinary water to produce 100% renewable and clean hydrogen fuel.
Although hydrogen fuel is a green and renewable form of alternative power, the same can’t always be said for the production process used to create this fuel. In fact, currently, the leading hydrogen fuel production method is steam-methane reformation. This process is not only costly but it is also damaging to the environment.
Trolysis has worked on overcoming these issues by inventing a sustainable and eco-friendly solution that allows for the production of on-demand hydrogen for everyday use. This is accomplished by taking advantage of a widely unused chemical element – aluminum.Read More
"Our generation is facing the biggest energy crisis in the history of mankind," says Tirthak Saha, Forbes 30 Under 30 Energy recipient, cofounder and CTO of newly-launched Trolysis. A startup energy company producing industrial hydrogen, Trolysis was developed to help pioneer lasting climate change resolutions, such as deep emissions cuts. Saha cites the latest IPCC report as a point for serious concern, deserving of immediate action.Read More
Aluminum is a tremendously valuable material. It is strong, lightweight, and relatively inexpensive. Applications include everything from airplanes to soda cans and the foil in which we bake potatoes. Automakers have recently begun making vehicles out of it in order to reduce weight and improve fuel economy.
But, it turns out, there’s another, more direct way that aluminum can help address our energy challenges. Few people have looked at aluminum as a fuel. Yes, that’s right, a fuel—and a renewable one at that. In fact, according to Josiah Nelson, CEO and co-founder of Trolysis, “Aluminum is one of the most energy-dense fuels on the planet.”Read More
Renewable energy company Trolysis, founded by a team with backgrounds ranging from Google, Fitbit, Harvard, Stanford and MIT, announced today that they have begun development on their much-anticipated flagship consumer product.
Trolysis is known for developing a system to harness aluminum as fuel to create electricity at a drastically cheaper cost than current methods, however many have been anticipating the implementation of the technology in a consumer system which can be attached to homes for individual-scale energy production.
"We've been developing the technology for years and our goal has always been to bring it to consumers, but it had to be the right application. We had to marry our cutting-edge technology with exceptional aesthetics and ease of use," says Josiah Nelson, Co-Founder & CEO. "To put our name on a product, it had to check all the boxes and what we've landed on has far exceeded our expectations."Read More
I’m the Co-Founder & CEO of Trolysis. I started this company a year ago and that was after 2 years of research on the idea itself. since then, I have scaled it to include a team with collective prior experience including Google, Harvard, Stanford, MIT, Fitbit, Paypal and NASA. It's been an exhilarating role and I love going to work every day knowing that I'm making a marked impact on the energy industry.Read More
