Coors Beer Clan’s New Brew: Cheap Hydrogen For Cleaner Trucks And Factories

Alan Ohnsman of Forbes reports on a new innovation in hydrogen fuel.

The C3 Take
  • CoorsTek, a company that was started by Coors Brewery founder Adolph Coors, engineers ceramics for cars and has potentially found a way to make hydrogen fuel more efficient.
  • In a best case scenario, hydrogen that is created with electrolysis operates at 70% efficiency. CoorsTek has found a way to make hydrogen work at nearly 90% efficiency.
  • CoorsTek’s method produces hydrogen fuel on site using ceramic reactors, which drastically improves overall efficiency by decreasing transportation time.
  • Private sector innovators are creating a cleaner future.

“Already a key supplier of high-tech ceramic materials to the global automotive, semiconductor, defense and energy industries, CoorsTek is jumping into hydrogen at a time when engineering and technological improvements are making it more attractive as a carbon-free fuel to electrify heavy-duty trucks, trains, ships, aircraft and other vehicles too large or heavy for battery packs.”
