218 - Big news for hydrogen in the USA with Phil Clark and Kevin Wyss
This was a FASCINATING conversation

The Biden-Harris administration announced today a plan to invest $7 Billion into the Hydrogen industry and I had an emergency LinkedIn Live with Phil Clark, self described Hydrogen Guru, and Kevin Wyss, PhD to discuss how packaging, hydrogen, and graphene can come together to make huge changes in the world.

About The Guest(s):

  • Kevin Wyss: Kevin Wyss is a PhD graduate from Rice University in Chemistry. He specializes in nanomaterials and is passionate about clean energy and sustainability. He has developed a groundbreaking process to convert waste materials into graphene, a valuable supermaterial, and clean hydrogen.

  • Phil Clark: Phil Clark is the founder of Omits, a company that uses artificial intelligence and neural networks to help navigate codes and standards. He has a background in hydrogen safety and is a hydrogen safety guru. Phil is also a lead trainer for the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and has formed a partnership with the Center for Hydrogen Safety.

Summary:

Kevin Wyss, a PhD graduate from Rice University, has developed a process to convert waste materials into graphene, a valuable supermaterial, and clean hydrogen. This process involves ultrafast heating, which breaks down the bonds in plastics and reorganizes them into graphene. The process is scalable and economically viable, as the graphene produced is highly valuable. The clean hydrogen produced can be used as a clean fuel source. The process is more sustainable and cost-effective compared to current methods of producing graphene and hydrogen.

Key Takeaways:

  • Kevin Wyss has developed a process to convert waste materials into graphene and clean hydrogen.

  • The process involves ultrafast heating, which breaks down the bonds in plastics and reorganizes them into graphene.

  • The graphene produced is highly valuable and can be used to strengthen and lighten materials such as concrete and polymers.

  • The clean hydrogen produced can be used as a clean fuel source and has various applications, including ammonia production.

  • The process is scalable and economically viable, making it a sustainable solution for waste management and clean energy production.

Quotes:

  • "We can convert waste materials into this supermaterial graphene." - Kevin Wyss

  • "We're making this clean fuel from waste plastic for free just by selling our graphene." - Kevin Wyss

  • "The graphene produced outperformed their current graphene in their polymers." - Kevin Wyss

  • "We're able to convert waste materials into a high-value graphene supermaterial." - Kevin Wyss

  • "We're making this clean fuel from waste plastic for free just by selling our graphene." - Kevin Wyss
