Levidian and ISTE partner to make eco-friendly hydrogen and cathode materials for secondary batteries from natural gas

Innovative System Technology (ISTE), based in South-Korea, has signed an agreement with Levidian Nanosystems to develop plants for turquoise hydrogen, a byproduct of natural gas pyrolysis, and graphene.

ISTE will commercialize this technology by boosting its production capacity for turquoise hydrogen from several tens of kg per cycle to T-units. Entering the hydrogen sector in 2019, ISTE designs and builds hydrogen charging stations in various locations. ISTE is reportedly an innovative small and medium enterprise in semiconductor front-end processes and supplies equipment to Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix.


Levidian holds patented technology to produce hydrogen and solid carbon dioxide when firing microwave plasma into natural gas as well as make graphene from CO2. The combination of silicon and graphene into a core-shell structure results in the output of efficient and stable cathode materials for secondary batteries.
