Smoltek Hydrogen is attending the joint international meeting of Electrochemical and Solid State Science. The meeting is arranged by Electrochemical Society Japan, Electrochemical Society Korea and the 246th ECS Meeting and will be held in Hawaii, US.
The event brings together the most active researchers in academia, government, and industry to engage, discuss, and innovate in the areas of electrochemistry and solid state science and related technologies.
We at Smoltek Hydrogen are showcasing our technology with the aim of lowering the loading of Ir-based catalyst to ≈ 0.1 mg iridium/cm2, without compromising the overall performance of the PEM electolyzer. The reduction of iridium is critical in order to enable global mass manufacturing targets for green hydrogen production using PEM electrolysis.Xin Wen, Senior Nanotechnology Scientist

ECM technical scope: The low electrical resistivity and mechanical strength indicate why corrosion coated nanofibers are an attractive catalyst support material. The solution offered by Smoltek Hydrogen takes full advantage of the exceptional nanofiber properties on a PTL (above illustration). This method ensures full contact between the nanofibers and the PTL while providing a high surface area substrate and catalysts can then be deposited on top of this substrate. The vertical orientation of the nanofibers facilitates coating of the surface with additional layers of material, such as corrosion protection layers or catalyst particles.
