“There comes a tide in the affairs of man which, caught at the flood, leads on to fortune.”
Proton’s mission is to transform the deep earth into a continuing source of green, clean and affordable energy.
Using our patented technology for ‘Hygenic Earth Energy’, industries worldwide will convert hydrocarbon reservoirs into hydrogen mines and thermal generators, and simply leave the carbon and other pollutants in the ground.
All kinds of reservoirs will be converted – new and abandoned, light oil and heavy oil, gas and coal.

IT’S A LOGICAL CONCLUSION – WON’T YOU AGREE?
To rapidly transform energy systems worldwide, profitably and sustainably, might sound like a dream.
However it is entirely reasonable, perhaps inevitable, if you accept Four Key Premises:
Hydrogen has long been recognized as the ultimate solution for energy sustainability. Hydrogen gives modern economies a universal medium for conversion, storage, and distribution of all kinds of energy, and provides a perfectly clean system for delivering energy services to cities. What is not widely recognized is how fast the transition to hydrogen is occurring. As the University of Davis writes in 2014:
“… in the past few years, important factors have emerged that are re-accelerating the commercialization of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. The next two to three years will see concerted efforts to introduce hundreds of hydrogen stations capable of supporting tens of thousands of Fuel Cell Vehicles in selected regions worldwide, backed by several hundred million dollars in public investment and billions of dollars in private investment.”
In fact the pace of change is even higher than predicted by UC Davis. The technologies for transporting and converting hydrogen are fully developed, and their production and sales are growing exponentially. Leading regions worldwide, including California, Germany, Japan, are now fully committed to a hydrogen future. Germany will have enough pipelines and feeling stations in place by 2023 to service their entire fleet of vehicles, and Toyota is working with German manufacturers to ensure that the vehicles will be available. The speed of transition will catch almost all of us by surprise. For background, check out the links below.
