NewHydrogen is striving to drive down the cost of producing hydrogen from renewable sources with the identification that this is key to a hydrogen-led future.
With a sponsored research program at UCLA aiming to reduce the cost of green hydrogen production, NewHydrogen is looking to replace iridium in proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolysers with a more stable, non-precious, metal-based oxygen evolution reaction catalyst (OER).
NewHydrogen is additionally developing a hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) catalyst for use with anion exchange membrane (AEM) electrolysers.
With these developments, NewHydrogen is additionally working with the Department of Energy (DOE) to reduce the cost of clean hydrogen by 80% to $1 per kilogram in a decade.
Dr. David Lee, CEO of NewHydrogen, said, “One kilogram of hydrogen has the same energy potential as a gallon of gasoline, but hydrogen has the advantage of simply turning into water vapor when used as fuel.
“Research funded by NewHydrogen is focused on lowering the cost of producing hydrogen from renewable sources, creating a clean energy source that does not pollute.”
