H2Pro, a company founded by a research team from the Nancy and Stephen Grand Technion Energy Program, is advancing Israel’s quest for a hydrogen-fueled future. The technology behind H2Pro was developed by Professor Gideon Grader, Professor Avner Rothschild, Dr. Hen Dotan, and Dr. Avigail Landman, who was a Ph.D. student while the research was being conducted.

H2Pro uses a water-splitting method called E-TAC (electrochemical thermally activated chemical) that draws hydrogen out of water by separating it from oxygen. The E-TAC water splitting system is 98.7% efficient.
