New sensor technology to help power America’s hydrogen future.
ALBUQUERQUE, NM – 07 NOVEMBER 2023 – SensorComm Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”, “SensorComm” or “SCT”) with offices in New Mexico and California (USA), together with the University of New Mexico’s Center for Micro-Engineered Materials (“UNM”), is pleased to announce that successful field testing of a new smart portable Internet-of-Things (“IoT”) hydrogen sensor system (“IoT Hydrogen Sensor System”) was completed in October 2023 at Colorado State University’s (“CSU”) Methane Emission Technology Evaluation Center (“METEC”). The innovative early-warning system for hydrogen gas detection has been developed as part of an ongoing (extended) three year joint UNM-SCT contract with the U.S. Department of Energy (“DOE”).
TESTING: Above ground atmospheric testing. Range of hydrogen (“H2”) emission rates: 2.5 to 30 Standard liters per minute. Preliminary METEC results indicate the IoT Hydrogen Sensor System is capable of measuring a few parts-per-million (“ppm”) of H2 at range (10’s of feet). A path forward has been established to improve H2 sensitivities to parts-per-billion (“ppb”) levels.
“SensorComm is accelerating its technology roadmap in the rapidly expanding hydrogen economy,”stated Robert Ian, Innovation & Marketing Director, SensorComm Technologies.“Customer discovery has identified channels-to-market with both end-users and solution providers for our AI-powered, IoT-driven, multi-gas sensor platform which now includes hydrogen capability”.
HYDROGEN HUBS: On October 13, 2023, the US Department of Energy issued a news release outlining the launch of seven Regional Clean Hydrogen Hubs (H2Hubs) across the nation to accelerate the commercial-scale deployment of low-cost, clean hydrogen—a valuable energy product that can be produced with zero or near-zero carbon emissions and is crucial to meeting the President’s climate and energy security goals.
Additional information will be made available in future news releases.
