The water electrolysis process is in use around the world for several decades, mainly in installations serving small-volume industries such as glass making, organic hydrogenation, generator cooling applications etc. In the fertilizer industry it was always an option when cheap electricity was available and there were no other sources of hydrogen.
As in the future the focus will be more on integrating renewable energy sources in a cross-sector approach, hydrogen will have a very important role to play – hence the need for improved power to hydrogen technology.
Improved power to hydrogen technology
Current discussions on water electrolysis include only two different methods – alkaline water electrolysis and PEM water electrolysis. While the former is regarded as a robust, low-CAPEX method, the latter stands for high flexibility and low OPEX. As neither of these technologies will serve future demands, we have come up with our own technology that combines the best of both.
We provide hydrogen generation devices that use surplus electric power, life-support devices in the closed area, and a pure water electrolysis method using an oxygen generation device to supply oxygen. High-purity hydrogen and oxygen can be generated using a zero-gap structure and high-performance membrane.
