Set to act as a platform for the company to incorporate additional electrolyser components, NewHydrogen is undertaking acidic water splitting tests, using commercial platinum and iridium-based catalysts to establish the benchmark performance of current commercial catalysts.

The prototype systems follows on from the company revealing a ‘breakthrough single-atom’ catalyst, which it said showed better performance than platinum in its lab studies, saying it could be vital for unlocking cost-competitive green hydrogen generation.

H2 View understands the company is boosting the synthesis of its novel catalysts prior to the performance evaluation, which will include long-term stability, hydrogen production rate, specific energy consumption, and estimated overall costs of new catalysts.

NewHydrogen has been developing its low-cost electrolyser catalyst technology in line with research and development conducted at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

“We are very pleased with the progress being made in our green hydrogen programme at UCLA,” said Dr. David Lee, CEO of New Hydrogen. “We look forward to seeing more exciting achievements as we methodically expand our technology focus beyond catalysts in 2023.”
