Who we are
Merriam-Webster defines the word ‘Syzygy’ as “the nearly straight-line configuration of three celestial bodies (such as the sun, moon, and earth during an eclipse)”. For our company, this word means the alignment of three things that are shaping the future. These are Energy, Technology, and Sustainability. When these align, you get Syzygy Plasmonics.
What we do
Syzygy is a technology company developing a new type of photocatalytic chemical reactor to revolutionize the industrial gas, chemical, and energy industries. This reactor will reduce both cost and emissions for major commodity chemicals. Examples of these chemicals include raw materials for transportation fuel, fertilizer, and plastic.
At the heart of our chemical reactor is the world’s most active photocatalyst. This means that our reactor is powered by light instead of heat that comes from burning fuel. Because we do not need to burn fuel, our reactor is able to reduce both cost and carbon emissions for the products that are created.
Our core technology has been demonstrated on many different high-value chemical reactions. But, as an early stage company we need to focus on an individual product to be successful. Our first go-to-market product will be a distributed hydrogen production system for small-scale hydrogen consumers. Examples of these consumers include manufacturers of semi-conductors, LED’s, float glass, food oil, metal, and users of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles.
