Who We Are

VulcanX is not your typical startup. We spun out from MéridaLabs at the University of British Columbia with a fully de-risked pilot plant. It all started in 2017 when we met with international partners to discuss methane pyrolysis. Since then, we have developed new systems that can produce hydrogen and solid carbon more efficiently and at a low cost.

Hydrogen End-Uses

Hydrogen revolutionizing our energy landscape


Feedstock, Fuel
Hydrogen, the versatile fuel of the future, is reshaping the landscape of raw materials and fuel industries. With its remarkable properties and zero-emission nature at the point of use, hydrogen presents a game-changing opportunity for a sustainable future.


Fuel cell Vehicles
Vehicles powered by hydrogen offer a clean and efficient solution for road, maritime, and aviation transportation. With zero tailpipe emissions and longer driving ranges, fuel cell vehicles hold the potential to revolutionize the way we commute, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and enhancing air quality.

Buildings & Communities

Heat and Power Generation
Hydrogen, as a clean and versatile energy carrier, can be utilized for heat and power generation in buildings and communities. Hydrogen produced with low emissions can reduce greenhouse gases and contributes to a more sustainable future.

Solid Carbon End-Uses

Tire Manufacturing

The incorporation of low-emission solid carbon in tire manufacturing significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions of associated with this sector. By utilizing low-emission carbon materials, tire manufacturers can contribute to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly approach, aligning with efforts to mitigate climate change.

Construction Industry

The adoption of low-emission solid carbon in the construction industry has the potential to deliver significant benefits in terms of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting sustainability. By incorporating these materials, construction projects can lower their carbon footprint and contribute to a more environmentally friendly built environment.

Li-ion Battery Electrodes

Low-emission solid carbon usage in Li-ion battery electrodes holds great promise for addressing greenhouse gas emissions and reducing production costs. By incorporating these materials, battery manufacturers can reduce the reliance on carbon-intensive components, leading to more sustainable battery technology.
