Sibanye-Stillwater and Heraeus partner on green hydrogen electrolyser catalysts

Sibanye-Stillwater and Heraeus Precious Metals are to collaborate on developing Platinum Group Metals containing electrocatalysts for Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolysers, for green hydrogen production.

Sibanye-Stillwater and Heraeus Precious Metals are to collaborate on developing Platinum Group Metals containing electrocatalysts for Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolysers, for green hydrogen production.

The project will be equally funded by the parties over a three-year period. The results will be mutually commercialised, and the parties will cooperate on communication and marketing of the novel catalyst.

Platinum and iridium are currently essential components of electrocatalysts for the generation of green hydrogen by means of PEM electrolysis. Iridium, however, is one of the scarcest PGMs and its limited availability is a potential constraint on the future widespread adoption of PGM PEM electrolysers.
