Monolith Materials seeks to substitute higher-priced crude oil with inexpensive natural gas for the production of carbon black and hydrogen in a cost-competitive, environmentally-advantaged manner. Monolith’s innovative technology and proprietary process is significantly cleaner than the incumbent method and has the benefit of also producing zero-emission hydrogen fuel, a valuable industrial gas used in petroleum refining, ammonia production, and power generation which are otherwise expensive to produce. After achieving all technical milestones in its pilot plant, Monolith is building out its commercial-scale facility, developed in partnership with Nebraska Public Power District and Northern Natural Gas. This plant, along with the Monolith Technology Center, an R&D facility designed to expand commercial capacities, is expected to come online in 2019.
