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.
