Hydrogen, Net Zero and Circularity a perfect Syzygy! - Trevor Best on photocatalytic based hydrogen production
Play • 54 min

On this week's show we speak with Trevor Best, CEO of Syzygy Plasmonics, a Houston area startup, who is a pioneer in the field of photocatalytic based hydrogen production. The company has recently closed its series A funding round. We discuss with Trevor the potential applications of the Syzygy approach and where they are aiming to engage the market first, as well as his view of the evolution of the hydrogen market today. All this and more on the show!
