Texas companies work together to commercialize patented electrolysis process that harvests rare earth elements from fly ash, produces hydrogen from coal and ash mix.
FEBRUARY 17, 2021—FORT WORTH, TEXAS—New Alternative Green Energy Inc. (New AGE), a company dedicated to creating a cleaner future, today announced a partnership with VODIK Labs of Fort Worth. The companies are working together to produce a commercial prototype for New AGE’s patented electrolysis solution that harvests rare earth elements from fly ash, enabling a productive revenue stream for remediation and repurposing of the coal waste. The patented New AGE process also produces clean energy alternatives such as hydrogen and HydrocarbonPlus™ from coal.
“After researching veteran hydrogen companies, we selected VODIK because of the complementary technologies and experience their team offers,” says New AGE Founder and Chairman Mike Wilson.
“New AGE and VODIK are working together very closely to bring multiple disruptive technologies into the marketplace in the coming months and years, and we believe that not only will these technologies create many jobs and benefit Texas but will be used on a global scale to benefit mankind in general,” says Carey Hilton, CEO of VODIK Labs.
The electrolysis prototype is expected to be announced later this year.
Marcus J. Lemon, Senior Counsel, Infrastructure and P3 at Clark Hill, is a former Presidential appointee to the Department of Energy. He was introduced to the New AGE solution in 2020. “New AGE’s solution helps solve two important strategic priorities for the United States: the ability to harvest rare earth elements domestically from coal ash and a pathway to clean energy independence,” Lemon says. “The New AGE technology is some of the most exciting that has come online in
recent years and caught the attention of DOE.”
