We have the technology to make production of green hydrogen profitable

Smoltek Hydrogen has developed a new material that solves the major technical challenge that threatens to halt the fast-growing industry for green hydrogen produced by intermittent energy sources, such as solar and wind power. With the groundbreaking nanomaterial, the use of iridium (catalysts) in PEM electrolyzers can be reduced to levels that make large-scale hydrogen production profitable.

Smoltek Hydrogen has finalized design of a Prototype Coater tool for carbon nanofibers

Smoltek Hydrogen and AGC Plasma Technology Solutions have finalized the design of a Prototype Coater for industrial growth of carbon nanofibers. The purpose with the tool is to verify that the nanofibers can be grown using a Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) technology from AGC. The technology is scalable and can be extended to be used for substrates of several square meters, for future mass production.

World-leading vehicle manufacturer is testing custom-made cell material

One of the world's largest vehicle manufacturers is testing custom-made prototypes of a cell material that can significantly reduce the amount of iridium in an electrolyzer cell. The custom-made prototypes delivered by the subsidiary Smoltek Hydrogen have the potential to reduce the iridium load in electrolyzer cells by 95% compared to today's commercial materials, which is a prerequisite for large-scale production of fossil-free hydrogen.

Smoltek’s CEO comments on the intended agreement that Yageo backed out of

Smoltek and Yageo have collaborated for a long time to enter into an agreement regarding the further development and commercialization of capacitors based on Smoltek's CNF-MIM technology. In December both parties announced the intention to enter into a license and service agreement. However, yesterday Yageo choose not to sign the agreement.

Smoltek can reduce contact resistance in electrolyzers and fuel cells

Smoltek has three new patents granted – in three new and separate patent families, all related to how our technology can reduce contact resistance between different layers in electrochemical cells, mainly for use in electrolyzers and fuel cells. These new patents also bring our IP portfolio to comprise 87 granted patents.

Smoltek intends to sign an exclusive agreement with Yageo Group

Smoltek has the intention to sign a global exclusive license and services agreement for discrete and embedded capacitors with YAGEO Group. This would grant YAGEO a global, exclusive right to manufacture and sell capacitor products based on Smoltek's patent protected technology platform for ultra-thin carbon nanofiber capacitors (CNF-MIM).
