Clean production of hydrogen and carbon nanomaterials from natural gas

A UWA spin-off company (HAZER Pty Ltd) has been formed to commercialise a patented technology that cracks natural gas into hydrogen and valuable carbon nanoparticles, without generating carbon dioxide, and without energy requirements in excess of the energy content of the hydrogen produced. The invention required extensive use of electron microscopy facilities at the UWA Centre for Microscopy, Characterisation and Analysis (CMCA) to understand and optimise the catalytic process and the resulting carbon nanomaterials. The technique was developed by UWA chemical engineer Prof Hui Tong Chua and his team with the electron microscopy work conducted in collaboration with the CMCA’s Prof Martin Saunders.
