The Monolith Process

Through its proprietary technology, Monolith has perfected methane pyrolysis, which uses 100% renewable electricity to convert natural gas or renewable biogas into clean hydrogen and carbon blacks. This clean, sustainable process is virtually emissions-free, significantly reducing life-cycle carbon emissions by more than 90%, with a path toward a zero-emission future.

Natural gas feedstock enters the reactor here.

A process gas can be added to help heat the natural gas.

The natural gas is super-heated by electricity. This is combustion-free and CO2-free.

The heat breaks the bonds between the hydrogen and carbon in the natural gas molecule.

The pairs of hydrogen atoms and carbon atoms move through the chamber and exit separately.

From here, the clean hydrogen is directed to end-users. The carbon is further processed by our technology into multiple grades of high-performance carbon blacks.
