Water electrolyzers are electrochemical devices used to split water into its constituent elements, hydrogen and oxygen, by passage of an electrical current. There are four main types of electrolyzers: alkaline and proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzers are already mature, while anion exchange membrane (AEM) and solid oxide electrolyzers are still under development. These technologies differ in numerous ways, most notably in cell design and variations within components. In this section you can find news items related to various aspects of electrolyzer technologies, equipment and components. If you would like to see your news release published here and in our email newsletter, please feel free to contact Matjaž Matošec.

Accidental discovery could revolutionize green hydrogen production

In a serendipitous scientific discovery, a team of researchers from the National University of Singapore have found that light can trigger a new mechanism in a catalytic material used extensively in water electrolysis. The result is a more energy-efficient – and potentially revolutionary – method of obtaining hydrogen.

Platinum-lanthanum catalyst could slash fuel cell costs

Researchers have devised a method for combining high-cost platinum and a low-cost rare earth element, lanthanum, as an alloy to serve as a catalyst in the next generation of fuel cells. This development could improve the performance of fuel cells, slash their cost, and make it easier to decarbonize heavy transport that is hard to electrify with batteries.
