Like all hydrocarbons, natural gas contains zero-emission energy in the form of hydrogen. In fact, 60% of the energy in natural gas comes from hydrogen and produces only water as a byproduct.
Natural Gas Combustion
What if we could selectively access just the hydrogen in hydrocarbons, and utilize its energy without making carbon dioxide?
C-Zero’s technology is a form of methane pyrolysis that uses innovative thermocatalysis to extract the carbon in natural gas as a dense solid. The company is developing a drop-in decarbonization system which can be placed in between the existing natural gas infrastructure and industrial natural gas consumers seeking to lower their carbon dioxide emissions.

C-Zero’s technology can be used to decarbonize a wide array of industries including electrical generation, process heating, and the production of commodity hydrogen for fuel cell vehicles, ammonia synthesis and refining processes.
