It was inspiring to learn about all these new innovations dedicated to fighting climate change. – Trevor Best, CEO of Syzygy Plasmonics

Syzygy was among 40 finalists selected from over 150 applicants to pitch innovative technologies at the forum. Trevor Best, CEO of Syzygy Plasmonics, introduced the company’s breakthrough photoreactor technology to attending investors, fellow innovators, and industry representatives.

Syzygy is commercializing a completely new type of chemical reactor that uses light instead of heat to drive chemical reactions. It eliminates the need to burn fossil fuels to power common chemical reactions and replaces that combustion with light from LEDs and renewable electricity. “We are electrifying chemical manufacturing,” remarked Best. “This gives industry a low or zero-emissions, affordable path for continuing to produce materials we use every day like fuel and plastic. Our initial commercial offering will be a zero-emissions hydrogen generator that converts green ammonia to hydrogen and nitrogen using renewable electricity.”

Regarding the forum, Best said, “It was inspiring to learn about all these new innovations dedicated to fighting climate change. And to come away as a winner is huge for us, especially considering all the great presentations from these elite cleantech startups. It’s validation to our investors. It’s a huge compliment to the Syzygy team and all the hard work we’ve done. This is proof we are on the right track to decarbonizing the future.”
