Development of the most Cost-efficient Hydrogen production unit based on AnioN exchange membrane ELectrolysis

Project description

New membrane and advanced catalysts slash costs of hydrogen production by electrolysis

Bringing together academia and industry, the EU-funded CHANNEL project is developing a novel, cost efficient 2 kW electrolyser stack based on anion exchange membrane (AEM) to boost hydrogen generation by water electrolysis. The AEM electrolyser will use low-cost materials including non-platinum group metal electrocatalysts, porous transport layers, current collectors, bipolar plates, and state-of-the-art anion exchange membranes and ionomers. The electrolyser will be designed to operate at differential pressure with a capital cost equal to or lower than classical alkaline electrolysis. However, unlike alkaline technology, CHANNEL’s AEM electrolyser aims to achieve efficiency and current density operation close to that of a proton exchange membrane electrolyser.
