The Issue

In today’s business environment, our companies face constant reminders of the need to “go green,” but investment in clean energy can be costly. We all care about the environment and want to do the right things, but the decision often comes down to whether or not we can afford it.

With the increased pressures on going green and saving energy, most business owners are realizing that this is something that needs to be addressed now rather than later – whether taking the lead or simply responding to the pressures.

The Solution


Proton Power, Inc. has developed a patented clean energy system designed for producing a hydrogen rich gas stream from biomass and waste sources. More simply, PPI is able to provide safe, viable, sustainable energy solutions to businesses that make financial sense.

This core technology, referred to as Cellulose to Hydrogen Power (CHyP), is ideal for clean energy applications such as distributed or central-station electrical power generation.

Here are some situations where the CHyP system makes sense as an application for electrical power generation:

  • Business has growing energy demands
  • Business has distributed power in a remote location
  • Business has existing diesel generators
  • Business already has a source of biomass
  • Business is in a location that has high incentives
  • Business has high electricity costs

The Impact

PPI’s patented CHyP system is proven to positively impact your company’s bottom line, whether you are looking to address a sustainability initiative or undertake a business investment opportunity (or both).

As a business owner and decision-maker, the CHyP system will help you control energy costs and make expenses predictable – while demonstrating to your customers that you are leading by example in the drive for sustainability.

The CHyP system provides an economical and environmentally-friendly solution to companies that have disposal issues with large quantities of processed waste products.

Double-digit ROIs and single-digit paybacks are achievable when generating electricity from biomass with­out the need for government incentives to make the numbers work. Financial returns are even higher when the CHyP system is integrated with existing continuous-duty diesel generators.

PPI lowers risk by supplying a complete system – fully commissioned and ready to go. We will train you to operate and maintain the system in a proper and safe manner.
