Smoltek Nanotech to optimise electrolyser systems for hydrogen production; prototype set for 2023

Smoltek Nanotech is supporting the growing electrolyser and hydrogen industries by developing an innovative nanofiber-based cell material to optimise green hydrogen production.

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.

It is hoped that production of small-scale prototypes could be as early as 2023.…
