Syzygy is scaling photocatalysis to decarbonise high value products from hydrogen to ammonia (and more)

Learn how Syzygy are using photocatalysis to deliver cost effective decarbonisation of key products from green hydrogen to ammonia

Houston, known for being the oil and gas capital of the U.S, is fast becoming a key centre of gravity for clean tech and energy transition IP. Syzygy is one of a number of early-stage disruptors calling the city their home, and we were fortunate to have Trevor Best, CEO, in conversation with Alex to talk about their photocatalysis technology and route to industrial scale.

Listen in to hear about the applications for their novel catalyst and reactor platform, including production of clean hydrogen at ambient temperatures plus CO2 reuse and ammonia production. This is technology which has the potential to be highly cost effective at scale because it can avoid the need for high industrial heat in core processes.

We talk about their scale up journey to date, their fundraising (just under $40m to date) and the industrial applications in steel, chemical and many of the harder to abate sectors.

Decarb Connect supports the acceleration of industrial decarbonisation around the globe. We share insights and facilitate collaborations across the emerging decarbonisation ecosystem. We look specifically at the most energy-intensive industrials from cement, metals and mining, glass, ceramics, chemicals, O&G and many more and help connect them to technology disruptors, investors and advisors.

Through the Decarbonisation Leaders Network (DLN), our members (a cross-sector network of those leading decarbonisation in energy-intensive industries) share insights and experiences as they accelerate their Net Zero plans. Check out Decarb Connect’s offerings and learn about the Decarbonisation Leaders Network members, meetups and benefits.
