Agfa unveils new membrane that could lower the cost of green hydrogen

Agfa has unveiled a new membrane for advanced electrolysis which the digital imaging company says will lower the cost of green hydrogen production.

For a rapid deployment of hydrogen applications, cost reductions need to be realised, mainly by scaling-up but also by technological innovations in electrolyser components, including membranes.

Agfa said its’ new ZIRFON UTP 500+ allows for an even 2.5% higher yield (measured at 10kA/m2) of hydrogen gas and sets a new standard for advanced alkaline electrolysis.

Marc Van Damme, Agfa’s Vice-President of Electronic Print and Films & Foils, commented, “The launch of ZIRFON UTP 500+ is the result of continuous efforts to enable our customers to produce green hydrogen at competitive cost.”
