Johnson Matthey (JM) and Hoeller Electrolyzer have signed a Memorandum of Understanding under which JM will collaborate with Hoeller Electrolyzer to provide catalyst coated membranes (CCMs) for their innovative PROMETHEUS range of proton exchange membrane (PEM) stacks developed for electrolyser systems.
Both companies are committed to supporting the transition to net zero by providing high-quality stacks for a range of applications, while continuing to develop the next generation of innovative stacks and CCM components for the future.
Focus on research and development
The collaboration will focus on joint research and development in conjunction with a fast-track manufacturing scale-up programme that will accelerate the launch of the PROMETHEUS stacks range within the next 12 months. In addition, the partnership will continue to develop next-generation electrolyser stacks with greater efficiency levels, ultimately helping lower the costs associated with green hydrogen production.
Neither Johnson Matthey nor Hoeller is new to electrolysis; instead, both will build on their vast experience and proven track record developing innovative, high-performance components for fuel cell applications. Johnson Matthey is also driving the transition to net zero by creating closed loop recycling systems within the electrolysis supply chain that will recycle and re-use as much of the key raw materials contained in the CCM as possible.
