C-Zero Raises $11.5M Series A
We are pleased to congratulate C-Zero, a CNSI Technology Incubator Program Alumni, which has raised $11.5M in Series A funding, led by Breakthrough Energy Ventures (BEV), to produce clean hydrogen from natural gas. C-Zero's innovation uses thermocatalytic decomposition to split methane – the primary molecule in natural gas – into hydrogen and solid carbon in a process known as methane pyrolysis. One of the technology's most innovative aspects is that it is carbon negative by extracting carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and permanently storing it in the form of high-density solid carbon co-product. The process is cleaner, efficient, and cheaper than current methods of hypodescent renewable energy.
