Agfa unveils new membrane that could lower the cost of green hydrogen

The technology is a breakthrough for the market as well with a recent Fraunhofer study suggesting that Afgan’s technology is the most cost-efficient technology for the production of hydrogen, the company has said.

The membrane adds to the existing UTP 500+ and UTP 500 membranes in Agfa’s portfolio, as recently revealed in a report by the Fraunhofer Institute, their use makes alkaline electrolysis (AEL) the most efficient technology for hydrogen production.

This could be a critical for the growing hydrogen market with cost-competitive green hydrogen being accessible to various industries and support growing decarbonisation goals.

Pascal Juéry, CEO of the Agfa-Gevaert Group, said, “We are delighted about thyssenkrupp nucera’s decision to use our ZIRFON membrane in their ambitious green hydrogen projects. It is not only a confirmation of Agfa’s product leadership but also a great reward for our efforts in contributing to a more sustainable world.”
