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."

XCMG's XGC15000A Sets New Wind Power Hoisting Record, Supports Low-Carbon Energy Construction

Sunburst Workforce Advisors | March 21, 2022

XCMG's (SHE:000425) 1,000-ton crawler crane, XGC15000A, has set a new world record after completing its first single-arm wind power hoisting operation at a height of 172+12 meters for the Jinjiaozhou wind power farm in Qingdao, China. Weighing in at 118 tons the 4.5MW wind power turbine hoisted to a height of 170 meters with the diameter of the impeller reaching 156 meters. It adopts the world-leading prestressed fatigue resistant framed steel pipe wind power tower that greatly increases the height of the wind turbine when compared with the common 120-140 meters flexible tower in the industry, which better utilizes wind resources and increases power generation efficiency. However, the higher installation height posed greater challenges for the crawler crane. The flat and open project site usually experiences strong wind greater than level 5, and the fully prepared construction team quickly completed the operation during a short "wind-free" time window, thanks to the powerful and stable performance of the XGC15000A. "The tower height at this wind farm will reach 180 meters or even above 200 meters, and facing these challenges, we found that XCMG had already taken everything into consideration. We believe XCMG can fully meet our needs in the future," - Di Caijin, who was responsible for the on-site hoisting operation. The successful installation makes the XGC15000A the world's first wind power crawler crane to achieve a hoisting height of 170 meters. China has pledged to reach carbon peak by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060, and according to the latest analysis from Wood Mackenzie, the country is expected to reach 700GW of cumulative connected wind capacity by 2030 and annual wind and photovoltaic installed capacity needs will reach 100- to 200 million kilowatts, which calls for more wind power projects to be developed at lower costs. In February, XCMG delivered China's largest tonnage wind power reach stacker, XCS70S, which was co-developed and customized by XCMG and CRRC Zhuzhou Institute Wind Power Business Unit. With a rated load of 70 tons, the product has a much broader range of applications and was designed for the hoisting operations of large-scale wind turbines and equipment. It is equipped with exclusive spreaders that increase hoisting and handling efficiency three-fold.
