BioSolar Announces Green Hydrogen Technology Venture

BioSolar | December 17, 2020

BioSolar, Inc. (OTC:BSRC) ("BioSolar" or the "Organization"), an engineer of energy stockpiling innovation and materials, today declared that it has shaped an entirely possessed auxiliary, NewHydrogen, Inc., to build up an electrolyzer innovation to bring down the expense of green hydrogen. This program will run equal and correlative to the Company's current lithium-particle innovation improvement focusing on the high-development battery electric vehicle ("BEV") area. (See www.NewHydrogen.com)

Some accept that energy component electric vehicles ("FCEV"), fueled by green hydrogen, or hydrogen delivered through sustainable methods versus petroleum gas or other non-renewable energy sources, will speak to a significant market opportunity later on for electric versatility. In a 2020 examination report, Goldman Sachs gauges that green hydrogen will be a "once in a blue moon" market opportunity worth more than $12 trillion.

Pound for pound, hydrogen contains 3 fold the amount of energy as petroleum gas or gas, and 200 fold the amount of energy as lithium-particle batteries. It is the most bountiful and pervasive clean energy known to man, however as hydrogen doesn't exist in its unadulterated structure, it should be removed. Starting at 2020, almost 95% of hydrogen on the planet is made by steam changing of petroleum gas ("dim hydrogen") or coal gasification ("earthy colored hydrogen"). The two wellsprings of hydrogen are fundamentally various types of filthy, carbon weighty, and non-inexhaustible petroleum products.

This never really help battle environmental change or lead to sustainable power and a reasonable planet. A superior and more suitable alternative for the planet is to make green hydrogen from sustainable assets, for example, sun oriented, wind and water. Today, electrolyzer innovation is the solitary industrially accessible answer for doing as such.

Electrolysis, the way toward utilizing power to part water into hydrogen and oxygen in an electrolyzer, has been logically demonstrated for over 200 years. It is a promising and adaptable alternative to create "green hydrogen" utilizing inexhaustible power produced from wind and sunlight based. Sadly, high effectiveness electrolyzers are costly and depend on uncommon earth materials, for example, platinum and iridium – in a real sense stardust discovered uniquely in space rocks. These materials represent almost half of the expense of electrolyzers.

"NewHydrogen will zero in on building up an advancement electrolyzer innovation to supplant uncommon earth materials with cheap earth bountiful materials," said Dr. David Lee, CEO of BioSolar. "While we leave on this new program in the high development classification of green hydrogen creation, we stay focused on our current battery innovation improvement program with the focal point of commercializing a silicon anode fit for improving the effectiveness and bringing down the expense of battery electric vehicle plan and creation."

Dole Installs Two Wind Turbines, Delivering Clean Electricity to Soledad Salad Processing Facility

Dole Food Company | November 17, 2022

Dole Fresh Vegetables, a division of Dole plc (NYSE: DOLE) announced the implementation and activation of two General Electric 2.8-Megawatt wind turbines at its salad processing plant in Soledad, CA.Each Dole turbine generating power to the facility stands 499 feet tall at maximum height with rotor diameters of 417 feet. Whenever sufficient wind is present to rotate the blades, electrical energy is automatically generated, 24 hours per day, seven days per week. This energy is primarily delivered to the Dole facility’s electrical system with any excess clean energy generated flowing directly to the Pacific Gas & Electric grid. The environmental benefits of the project are expected to be significant according to forecasts. Pursuant to the Environmental Protection Agency’s Greenhouse Gas Equivalency Calculator,1 this wind project is estimated to directly reduce CO2 emissions by 14,921 tons per year. “Representing an important milestone in our sustainability journey, these turbines will have a substantial impact on our operations’ carbon footprint, They are projected to produce over 19 million kilowatt hours of clean electricity per year, which will result in a 70% offset to our overall energy consumption at this site.” -Timothy Escamilla, President of Dole Fresh Vegetables The Environmental Protection Agency has roughly estimated the positive annual impacts of these turbines to be equivalent to offsetting the electricity use of 2,634 American Homes. Seeking domestically produced renewable energy and reducing the company’s reliance on fossil-fuel power to make a markable positive impact against climate change is in line with the company’s The Dole Way framework. Launched in 2020, the program’s goal is to keep improving opportunities for communities around the world by being an important pioneer of change. With the facility’s focus on harnessing wind power Dole will also be contributing to the stability of the local electric grid. Salinas Valley possesses a unique geography that provides a strong and consistent wind during the summer months, and particularly in the evening when the electrical grid is most stressed and utilizes more fossil fuel peaker power plants. The Dole wind turbines were manufactured by General Electric and installed by Foundation Windpower LLC, a developer, owner, and operator of utility-scale wind projects. The project was facilitated and brought to completion with the help of Ryan Park, of Spiral Energy LLC. “These state-of-the-art Dole turbines represent the seventh Foundation Windpower installation in the Salinas Valley, We are proud to work with progressive thinking companies like Dole that don’t just talk about reducing hydrocarbon emissions and oil dependence in their operations but take active steps to make it reality.” -Steve Sherr, Executive Senior Vice President of Business Affairs for Foundation Windpower About Dole Food Company Dole Food Company, part of Dole plc, is one of the world’s largest producers and marketers of high-quality fresh fruit and fresh vegetables. Dole is an industry leader in many of the products it sells, as well as in nutrition education. For more information, please visit www.dole.com.
