Smoltek Innovation is aiming to make PEM electrolysers more efficient for the production of hydrogen by utilising its patent-protected nanotechnology.
The technology improves the areas efficiency in interface layers between membranes, flow field plates and electrodes in electrolyser cells, these cells can be made both cheaper and increase peak hydrogen production.
The hydrogen production technology that Smoltek is focusing on is called proton exchange membrane (PEM), a process that produces very pure hydrogen and has a great advantage in that it can already handle higher current density and more variables loads than alkaline electrolysis cells.
This means that PEM works well together with intermittent energy sources, such as solar and wind power.
