With a plan to decarbonize home heating with hydrogen, Modern Electron raises $30M

Devin Coldewey writes in TechCrunch about Modern Electron, who has recently raised $30 million in funding.

The C3 Take
  • Modern Electron is looking to decarbonize the building heating process through its thermionic converter and Modern Electron Reserve.
  • The thermionic converter converts the heat produced by a furnace into electricity.
  • The Electron Reserve converts natural gas it into solid graphite and hydrogen gas. The hydrogen is sent to the furnace to be burned, while the graphite sequesters CO2.
  • Through these innovations Modern Electron can make a serious dent in decarbonizing buildings around the world.

“If Modern Electron’s tech becomes mainstream, and the trend away from oil and coal continues, it could make natural gas a much cleaner and more viable complement (and one already with a heavy global presence) to renewables like solar and wind.”
