The Science

Chemical Synthesis

LERC’s energy-efficient, high-temperature, Solid- Oxide Electrolyzer Cell (SOEC) has many applications including ammonia production from steam and nitrogen, water production from hydrocarbons (such as natural gas and coal gas), and hydrogen production from steam. These are critical chemical applications necessary for modern life as we know it, for much of the planet. LERC is a research & development company that seeks to license its technology and related applications to commercial partners around the globe.

LERC is the result of over 20 years of combined material science research. This has allowed us to formulate a ceramic reactor material that performs the electrochemical functions to produce low-cost, low-emission compounds.
