A European consortium is working on the implementation of RECYCALYSE, a Horizon 2020 research and innovation project that will enhance the energy storage market through novel and recyclable catalytic materials made of abundant elements.
11 partners from seven European countries will work for 36 months to overcome the main barriers that remain for proton exchange membrane electrolysers cells (PEMEC), namely high capital cost and use of critical raw materials, and to boost the economic competitiveness of the European Union (EU) energy storage production.
The idea behind RECYCALYSE is to disrupt the energy storage market through the development and manufacture of highly active sustainable oxygen evolution catalysts, and through a recycling scheme for PEMEC catalysts, electrodes and overall system.
This technology will help to reduce or eliminate critical raw materials, thus decreasing CO2 emissions and reducing costs.
