Primary Industry:Automotive
Executive Summary:Hydrogen and natural gas are considered the two cleanest energies. Both do not produce pollutant when used as automobile fuel. The biggest challenge impeding them as a widely accepted alternative fuel is the lack of sufficient storage system that supports acceptable driving range up to 300 miles. DNAin Composites is implementing its protected storage technologies to meet this challenge. The company is developing systems for both natural gas and hydrogen storage. The natural gas costs only half the price of gasoline. The price for hydrogen will eventually drop and it will become the largest energy market in 10-15 years. The company’s products have standard version that meet the basic acceptable driving range (300 miles) and extended version that supports a driving range up to 900 miles unmatched by gasoline fuel. The storage system developed by the company can also be used for transport that imports and exports gaseous energy between production and demanding countries. The company believes that these products will pave a way for a wide acceptance of these two cleanest fuels and set a landmark for clean-fuel economy. And the company targets itself as a successful leading giant to largely benefit from this emerging industry.
