Modern Electron

Nearly 40% of all human-generated greenhouse gas emissions come from the building sector, with heating accounting for approximately 50% of total energy use in homes. Modern Electron has developed a breakthrough thermionic conversion technology that transforms otherwise wasted high-grade heat inside boilers and furnaces into electricity for onsite use. The company is also developing an innovative technology process known as concurrent combustion methane pyrolysis. It’s designed to produce clean hydrogen and solid carbon using only natural gas and air as inputs. Hydrogen created by this clean pyrolysis process has the potential to be used for heating in industrial, commercial, and residential applications. Solid carbon resulting from the process could be turned into products such as asphalt, construction materials, automobile tires and soil amendments. Modern Electron’s solutions enable decarbonization at scale for emissions-intensive processes, creating a critical pathway to achieving our net zero goals.
