Cost-effective PROton Exchange MEmbrane WaTer Electrolyser for Efficient and Sustainable Power-to-H2 Technology

Project description

Clean and sustainable methanol production at a cost the world can afford

The use of hydrogen (H2) as a renewable source of energy could mitigate climate change caused by carbon emissions. However, its production currently relies on hydrocarbons, resulting in large emissions of CO2. Obtaining the H2 from clean and simple electrolysis of water coupled to renewable sources could solve the problem. Proton exchange membrane water electrolysis is a promising technology in this respect. Enabling widespread uptake requires reducing or eliminating the use of expensive precious metal catalysts and other expensive components without compromising performance. The EU-funded PROMET-H2 project is taking this promising technology for cheap renewable H2 generation from the lab to market allowing further conversion to fuels and high-value chemicals. In this context PROMET-H2 will demonstrate the conversion to methanol, the simplest alcohol that can be produced from only CO2 and H2.
