Operational update for Smoltek’s electrolyzer technology

Operational update for Smoltek’s electrolyzer technology

Smoltek has devel­oped a high-per­form­ing nanofiber-based cell mate­r­i­al for PEM-elec­trolyz­ers, with poten­tial to enable a more effi­cient pro­duc­tion of fos­sil-free hydro­gen. In the autumn of 2021, a devel­op­ment col­lab­o­ra­tion was ini­ti­at­ed in col­lab­o­ra­tion with an indus­tri­al man­u­fac­tur­er of mate­ri­als for elec­trolyz­ers, and the aim is to be able to start man­u­fac­tur­ing small-scale pro­to­types in 2023.

Smoltek con­ducts oper­a­tions in the devel­op­ment, indus­tri­al­iza­tion and licens­ing of tech­nol­o­gy solu­tions, based on the com­pa­ny’s patent-pro­tect­ed car­bon nanofiber tech­nol­o­gy, for the semi­con­duc­tor indus­try with­in the Group com­pa­ny Smoltek Semi. Its main focus is the indus­tri­al­iza­tion and com­mer­cial­iza­tion of the company’s ultra-thin CNF-MIM capacitors.

The eval­u­a­tion license agree­ment that Smoltek signed in April 2020 with a glob­al man­u­fac­tur­er of elec­tron­ic com­po­nents has been extend­ed fur­ther. The work with­in this project is car­ried out by the sub­sidiary Smoltek Semi, whose main objec­tive is to devel­op and license the man­u­fac­ture of ultra-thin capac­i­tors based on Smoltek’s patent-pro­tect­ed car­bon nanofiber technology.

Smoltek has achieved proof-of-con­cept for high-per­form­ing, nanofiber-based cell mate­r­i­al for PEM-elec­trolyz­ers. In our lab­o­ra­to­ry we have demon­strat­ed that the cell mate­r­i­al ful­fills sev­er­al impor­tant per­for­mance and dura­bil­i­ty require­ments, includ­ing very low con­tact resis­tance, which poten­tial indus­tri­al part­ners have stat­ed that they want to test before a col­lab­o­ra­tion regard­ing the con­tin­ued devel­op­ment can be initiated.

Smoltek Inno­va­tion’s efforts to devel­op a unique and high-per­for­mance nanofiber-based cell mate­r­i­al for elec­trolyz­ers used in fos­sil-free hydro­gen pro­duc­tion con­tin­ues to devel­op accord­ing to plan. Dia­logues are now ongo­ing with the aim of sign­ing a col­lab­o­ra­tion agree­ment with a major man­u­fac­tur­er for the con­tin­ued devel­op­ment of the concept.

Introducing Smoltek Electrolyzer Technology

Hydro­gen has proven to be a key to stor­ing renew­able ener­gy and mak­ing heavy indus­try car­bon-free. But there is a catch. The hydro­gen is pro­duced by elec­trol­y­sis. Con­ven­tion­al alka­line elec­trol­y­sis has poor effi­cien­cy. And the much more high-per­form­ing poly­mer elec­trolyte mem­brane (PEM) elec­trol­y­sis requires rare earth met­als. This is where Smoltek’s tech­nol­o­gy comes in. Our solu­tion, pre­sent­ed in this whitepa­per, makes the elec­trodes in PEM elec­trol­y­sis up to three times more effi­cient while reduc­ing the amount of pre­cious met­al needed.

Smoltek announces that the license agree­ment, signed with a glob­al man­u­fac­tur­er of elec­tron­ic com­po­nents for its tech­ni­cal and com­mer­cial eval­u­a­tion of Smoltek’s capac­i­tor tech­nol­o­gy, will be fur­ther extend­ed until the end of August 2021. The extend­ed joint project will con­tin­ue with the aim of mak­ing it pos­si­ble for the cus­tomer to enter into a com­mer­cial licens­ing agree­ment with Smoltek.

Revolutionizing electrolyzer technology to meet future needs for cost-effective hydrogen

Hydro­gen will play a key role in a num­ber of indus­tries, not least in pro­vid­ing the indus­tries with so-called “green elec­tric­i­ty”, as part of Europe’s ener­gy tran­si­tion to cli­mate neu­tral­i­ty. But some­one must also pro­duce the huge amounts of hydro­gen that will be required to meet the grow­ing needs. At the moment Smoltek Inno­va­tion AB is test­ing its car­bon nanofiber based tech­nol­o­gy, which may dras­ti­cal­ly increase pro­duc­tiv­i­ty in hydro­gen pro­duc­tion at a low­er cost than cur­rent technology.
