Proton has the lowest-cost method for producing Clear Hydrogen, which is the most environmentally friendly and lowest cost method to make hydrogen.

The plan is to produce Clear Hydrogen from the UK’s aging offshore oil assets while sequestering vast amounts of CO2 as solid carbonate within the same systems.

In 2021, CHUK’s founders invested $3.7 million CAD in Proton to obtain a 20 tonne per day production license for use in the UK and Ireland. The expansion announced today is 250x larger, giving an implied total license value as high as $925 million CAD for 5000 tonnes per day. Terms include 45% ownership of CHUK going to Proton, who will be providing increased technical support and governance oversight to CHUK’s team. Two of CHUK’s founders will also be joining the board of Proton.

Chairman of CHUK Hertford King had this to say: “We look forward to the jobs and economic security this will bring to the UK using Proton’s low cost, carbon negative technology to leverage the equipment, assets, offshore knowledge, and people who already support the UK’s offshore energy production. Our intention is for CHUK to be an important component of the UK’s drive to become low carbon energy independent, and our agreement with Proton is a big step in helping us achieve this goal.”

Chairman of Proton Technologies, Grant Strem said “Our mission is to proliferate this hugely-scalable clean energy technology worldwide as fast as we can afford to. We like partnering with decisive and capable groups like CHUK to fill offtake deals already in advanced discussions. Adapting Proton’s hardware solutions to an offshore setting is easily within the technical grasp of experts in the UK, and this partnership with CHUK is good news for the environment and the UK economy generally. The energy sector is roughly $10 trillion per year. We expect to produce hydrogen at a lower energy cost than natural gas; the implications of this are profound.”

Envoy Gateway Makes Using Envoy Proxy Easier for Developers and Reverses Fragmentation16.5.2022 06:01:00 CEST | Press release

Members of the steering group for Envoy Gateway (EG), including Envoy creator Matt Klein and representatives from Ambassador Labs, Fidelity Investments, Tetrate, and VMware, Inc., today announced their joint commitment to the project, which launched today at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon, Europe 2022, under the auspices of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®). Envoy Gateway is a new effort within the Envoy proxy open source project to simplify Envoy use in cloud-native application development. Envoy Gateway will reduce existing, redundant efforts around Envoy and make it much easier for application developers to use Envoy as a basic API gateway “out of the box” and as a Kubernetes Ingress controller. Exposing a simplified set of APIs, and implementing the Kubernetes Gateway API, EG makes it easier to extend Envoy. Developers will now have a cost-free, unfettered way to provide external access to their work in progress. At the same time, Envoy Gateway will not replace API managemen

Boehringer Ingelheim’s latest investigational treatment slowed lung function decline in people living with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis15.5.2022 18:41:00 CEST | Press release

Today, Boehringer Ingelheim announced Phase II data for BI 1015550, a novel investigational phosphodiesterase 4B (PDE4B) inhibitor, that was published in The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).
