Exclusive: Doubling electrolyser production rates: OnS CEO discusses coating breakthrough

Founded in 2012 by a group made up of Oxford University academics and entrepreneurs, Oxford nanoSystems (OnS) until late was focused on applications of coatings for heat transfer systems, before a branch out into green hydrogen production, and recently yielding test results that could be somewhat of a game-changer for electrolysis.

Sparked by a “conceptual similarities” between heat transfer systems and electrolysis, combined with a market primed for rapid growth, Ian Russell, CEO of OnS, told H2 View, the company’s shift into hydrogen is set to be followed by technology that provides a “significant uplift in the rate of hydrogen production.”

In June (2023), the company announced it had achieved a major breakthrough with its proprietary electrode coating, nanoFLUX, that could improve the hydrogen production capacity of electrolysers by over 50% and thus reduce production costs.
