#INNOVATION

What is gold hydrogen?

Gold Hydrogen is a novel source of carbon neutral hydrogen produced from depleted oil reservoirs that are ready for plug and abandonment, extending the life of wells that would otherwise be a significant burden. Gold hydrogen is produced biologically and in the subsurface.

We continue to believe that innovation and collaboration are critical to the future of hydrogen and the accomplishment of private and public carbon emission reduction goals. Cemvita has a unique approach to this, and we are pleased to partner with another application that is likely to utilize Chart hydrogen and cryogenic equipment.

Meet Gold HydrogeN​

Defined as hydrogen that’s produced biologically, and in the subsurface. The Cemvita process ferments the unrecovered oil in depleted reservoirs and caverns.

Did you know that there are microbes that live in subsurface oil reservoirs? Like all forms of life, these microbes consume carbon sources for energy and growth. Cemvita scientists have discovered a category of these subsurface microbes that can produce hydrogen. ​

HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT? 

We specialize in industrial-strength synthetic biology applied to decarbonization.

1

Carbon-Negative:

We focus on carbon-negative pathways that use CO2 or Methane as a feedstock.

2

Non-model Microbes

We have a special focus on growing, optimizing, and utilizing a portfolio of non-model microorganisms including extremophiles with industrial applications.

3

Scale-up

We help our clients scale up bioprocesses from lab to 1000X scale.

Gold Hydrogen Program

Cemvita is making the Gold Hydrogen technology available to the industry via a Joint Industry Program and welcoming innovative companies who have a vision for repurposing their existing subsurface assets in alignment with a low-carbon energy transition.​
