FC Renew's fuel cell renewal process is the first of its kind. We can renew the electrocatalyst of a fuel cell at the surface of the electrode without removing or replacing the fuel cell stack. Renewing fuel cells extends their operational lifetime six-fold. For example, the fuel cells in Class 8 commercial trucks are manufacturer rated for 150,000 miles. With our renewal process, the same fuel cell will be in service for 1.2 million miles.

At Holocene, Anca and her team employ organic chemistry to develop an efficient, regenerative CO2 removal system. Holocene’s solution employs two novel organic compounds, one to enhance water’s absorption capacity for carbon dioxide and the other to remove the carbon dioxide from the water-based solution through precipitation. The process concentrates and removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere with higher efficiencies than current carbon removal technologies, recycles both compounds, and uses traditional chemical engineering processes and widely available equipment.
