Enapter, winners of the prestigious Earthshot Prize in 2021, is developing a next generation AEM electrolysis technology that could significantly drive down the cost of green hydrogen production.
The partnership will include collaborating on the joint development of advanced components for Enapter’s AEM stacks. Specialised catalysts will also be supplied, recognising Johnson Matthey’s undisputed expertise in catalysts.
As well as this, Johnson Matthey and Enapter will jointly investigate opportunities for the recycling of production scraps and components from end-of-life products, recognising Johnson Matthey’s competitive advantage in offering closed loop solutions.
This could prove to be a significant development for the hydrogen industry and could rapidly scale the industry.
Liam Condon, CEO of Johnson Matthey, said, “Our ambition is to become the global leader in green hydrogen technologies and to diversify our technology base in this booming market, both in the electrolyser and fuel cell markets.
“This strategic partnership is at the heart of our strategy as we focus our resources on growth areas targeted at climate change solutions. Working with Enapter is a great opportunity for us to accelerate and further expand in green hydrogen and deliver on our vision for a cleaner, healthier world.”
Sebastian-Justus Schmidt, founder and CEO of Enapter, said, “Rapid growth and scaling of our technology lies at the core of our mission to drive down the cost of green hydrogen.
“This partnership recognises Johnson Matthey’s pioneering work in material chemistry and its industrialisation, and enables us to continue enhancing the efficiency and performance of our products to deliver on the promise of clean energy for all.”
North American Hydrogen Summit
H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.
As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.
With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?
If you are a member of the CaFCP, be sure to grab your ticket at a discounted rate with a code that can be provided to you by the events team.
