Efficient use of iridium can boost green hydrogen production in this decade and Smoltek Hydrogen wants to seize the opportunity by offering a nanostructured porous transport electrode that reduces cost and optimizes use of the critical anode catalyst in PEM electrolysis cells.
Smoltek has been awarded yet another patent in our patent family for Interposers, protecting solutions based on the CNF-MIM capacitor technology. The patent has been granted in India, bringing our patent portfolio to 82 granted patents globally.
Philip Lessner, CTO at YAGEO Group says in an interview that he and Yageo sees a lot of potential in Smotek's disruptive CNF-MIM capacitor technology for making capacitors in extremely small form factors.
Smoltek has yet another patent granted. This time in India, and it is related to the Assembly platform patent family in the direction of interconnects. This also makes our patent portfolio to now comprise 81 granted patents.
Smoltek is awarded a new patent. The first one in a new patent family internally called Electro Catalyst Support, which is targeted towards the production of green hydrogen. This innovation discloses how our carbon nanofibers can support the iridium catalyst load in a PEM-electrolyzer in a better way. This patent also brings our IP portfolio to comprise 80 granted patents.
We are pleased to announce that from today Sankar Sasidharan, PhD, has joined Smoltek, thanks to a prestigious industrial postdoc grant from WISE - Wallenberg Initiative for Sustainable Material Science.
Smoltek is awarded a new patent – the first one of a new patent family called Discrete CNF-MIM. This innovation discloses a discrete capacitor component based on our CNF-MIM technology. This also brings our IP portfolio now to comprise 79 granted patents.
Today we have inaugurated the new in-house hydrogen laboratory. In these facilities equipped with advanced instruments and tools the R&D team can carry out performance measurement and long-term tests of electrolyzer cells, and will also be able to manufacture test cells.
Smoltek has achieved very successful test results of the company's disruptive cell material for PEM electrolysers. Prototypes with only 0.5 mg of iridium per square centimeter produce as much hydrogen as a standard material with 2.5 mg of iridium per square centimeter.
Smoltek Hydrogen has appointed Shafiq Kabir as Head of Volume Processes. Shafiq is the founder of Smoltek and he methodically created the company's technology platform and patent portfolio until January 2021, when he took a break from the nanotechnology industry for pursuing an Executive MBA-program.
In order to enable the extensive electrification and to replace fossil raw materials in industry, large investments are being made globally in the production, distribution and use of completely fossil-free hydrogen, so-called green hydrogen. In Sweden, some attention is certainly directed towards the steel industry's investments, but the huge interest in hydrogen that we see in many other countries has not yet reached this point.
Smoltek has yet another patent granted. This time in China, and it is related to the Assembly platform patent family in the direction of interconnects. This also makes our patent portfolio to now comprise 78 granted patents.
