Georgetown, DE (PRWEB) March 14, 2012
Xergy Inc., a Cleantech startup utilizing proton-pump technology to provide the most efficient, noiseless, modular, scalable compressors for refrigeration systems, successfully showcased its Kuel-cellTM technology at the ARPA-E Energy Summit at the National Harbor in Washington DC, Feb 27th to 29th 2012.
Xergy Inc. unveiled its fully working Kuel-cellTM technology “KC-2500(DU)” demonstration unit along with a video (youtu.be/byqBAHEGsSk), which is also available on Xergy’s Youtube channel: Xergyprotonpump, showing the unit operating in the lab environment.
Co-founder, Bamdad Bahar, commented that “It was a privilege to be asked by ARPA-E to showcase our technology at this very important meeting. There were incredible keynote speakers like Bill Gates, Bill Clinton and our own home state of Delaware’s Senator Chris Coons. It was a real honor for us that Chris Coons diverted from his busy schedule to drop in on our booth at the show. This is clearly a very exciting time for our company with major opportunities for us.”
Xergy Incorporated was founded in 2009 to commercialize a series of patents based on “proton pumping technology” to launch a new class of clean, green compressors for the refrigeration and cooling industry that Xergy calls Kuel-cellTM technology.
Xergy’s technology is based on pumping protons electrochemically to compress clean, non-Green-House-Gas (GHG) depleting refrigerants. This technology provides for highly-efficient, noiseless, vibration-free, modular and scalable refrigeration, cooling and heat-pump Systems. This technology is transformational and potentially disruptive for the conventional refrigeration industry. It uses stable and well-understood technology, from the Fuel-cell industry, in a novel fashion that simply uses electricity to produce refrigeration without the need for motors or polluting refrigerants. Devices utilizing this technology could be deployed in any number of commercial, residential and automotive applications in a cost-effective, efficient and planet-friendly manner. It leverages existing proton-exchange-membrane (PEM) technology with the excellent thermodynamic characteristics of protons and it’s ability to co-exist with other fluids, to operate a clean and efficient refrigeration cycle.
Xergy won GE’s Global Ecomagination in June 2011, was a finalist in ARPA-E’s BEETIT program in 2010, and expects to deliver prototypes to its global F500 strategic partners within the next 12 months.
