The Technology Partnership (TTP) and Ionomr Innovations Inc., plan to lower green hydrogen production costs as the companies announced today (June 7), a partnership to demonstrate a new green hydrogen electrolyser design for mass production.
Utilising Ionomr’s ion exchange productions and TTP’s experience in technology commercialisation, the development plans to deliver electrolysers with low operating and capital cost.
From the outset, the technology is being designed to facilitate the manufacturing scale-up of electrolysers, by leveraging high-volume manufacturing processes from other industries, and by taking a novel approach to material selection, the companies say.
The partnership hopes to address the growing need to dramatically ramp-up global electrolyser manufacturing capacity in order to meet the forecasted demand, in order to meet climate targets.
An ambitious three-year timetable sets the partners the challenges of incorporating Canada-based Ionomr’s anion exchange production Aemion+, with the UK-based TTP hoping to make electrolyser stacks at high volumes for low costs.
Bill Haberlin, CEO of Ionomr Innovations, said, “We are delighted to form this partnership with TTP. They have the scale and the experience necessary to integrate our advanced materials into a new electrolyser technology that could revolutionise how electrochemical stacks, and green hydrogen, are produced in the future.”
H2 View understands, TTP is currently in discussions with electrolyser operators regarding pilot system installations.
Charles Cooke, Sustainable Energy Technology Lead at TTP, commented, “We are excited to be working with Ionomr’s high-performance materials, which offer opportunities to develop cleaner and more efficient technology solutions to address the climate emergency, in this case a low-cost electrolyser technology for green hydrogen generation.”
