University of Delaware-born Versogen, the growing Wilmington green energy startup, has added two new members to its team.

Lisa Dunsmore, Ph.D. and Felipe Mojica, M.S., join a multidisciplinary team of scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs led by CEO Yushan Yan. They will design and build Versogen’s first 1 kW electrolyzer that uses an anion exchange membrane (AEM) to produce green hydrogen.

“Our recent selection for the highly competitive GCxN Shell GameChanger program, coupled with the addition of Lisa and Felipe to our growing team, will advance the commercialization of our new class of zero-emission AEM electrolyzer technology,” said Yan, UD’s Henry B. du Pont Chair of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, in a statement. “We plan to complete a 1 kW prototype by the end of the year and a MW stack by the end of 2022.”

Dunsmore earned a doctorate in mechanical engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and a bachelor’s in mechanical engineering from the University of Pittsburgh, and has extensive fuel cell fabrication and testing experience.

Mojica earned master’s and bachelor’s degrees in mechanical engineering from the University of California, Merced. His previous work includes novel flow field design and fuel cell membrane electrode assembly development.

Versogen, which has received over $5 million in grants to develop its green technology since it began as W7Energy in 2018, is located in the Delaware Innovation Space. Technical.ly named the company #1 on 2020’s RealLIST Startups list for Delaware. Versogen counts 10 employees on its website.
