Adelaide-based Sparc is prototype testing its photocatalytic reactor
technology to split water into its constituent hydrogen and oxygen
molecules at CSIRO’s Energy Centre in Newcastle, New South Wales
The photocatalytic water splitting technology is expected to deliver
cost and flexibility advantages over green hydrogen projects that use
electrolysers or solar farms, given the lower infrastructure and energy requirements.
Sparc executive chair Stephen Hunt said this is “a world leading demonstration of photocatalytic water
splitting in a concentrated solar field"
