New sustainable and recyclable catalytic materials for proton exchange membrane electrolysers

Project description

Replacing critical raw materials in proton exchange membrane electrolysers

Water electrolysis is a key technology for storing excess renewable energy. The EU-funded RECYCALYSE project aims to break the bottlenecks that hold back the further development of proton exchange membrane electrolysers, namely the high capital costs and the use of critical raw materials. The project will develop new catalyst supports and replace critical raw materials in catalysis with earth-abundant elements such as nickel, manganese and copper. It will then devise a recycling scheme for the new catalysts, electrodes and overall electrolyser system. The sustainable development and management of materials could ultimately reduce EU imports and create a circular economy.
