Genius Steampunk Scientist Developing Proton Exchange Membrane Water Electrolyzer

Is Smoltek Hydrogen ahead of the game?

How does Smoltek's hydrogen business division compare with other PEM electrolyzer players? Smoltek Hydrogen’s president, Ellinor Ehrnberg, attended the 244th ECS meeting in Gothenburg and has the answer. In this interview, she also talks about the challenges of the industry and ways to deal with them.

Smoltek Hydrogen is verifying its technology for high-volume manufacturing

Smoltek Hydrogen has placed an order for the design and engineering of a Prototype Coater for industrial growth of carbon nanostructures. The purpose is to verify that the nanostructures can be grown using the equipment from AGC Plasma Technology Solutions that has been selected for future mass production – a Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) tool that can be configured for substrates of several square meters.

Smoltek patent No. 83 now granted – the first in a new family

Smoltek is awarded a new patent. This patent is also the first one in a new patent family internally called Electro Catalyst Heating, which discloses a way of facilitating endothermic electrocatalytic reactions by adding heat in the catalytic structure in the electrolyzer cell. This patent also brings our IP portfolio to comprise 83 granted patents.

WISE Welcome meeting

The WISE Welcome meeting is a welcoming of Wallenberg fellows and project leaders. There are also industrial partners of various projects to join the meeting. Smoltek Hydrogen/Chalmers will be presenting proposed work on strategy and targets with Low Ir loaded catalysts for PEMWE with smoltek CNF technology.
Smoltek Patent No 80 Electro Catalyst Support

Electro Catalyst Support

The Electro Catalyst Support family is covering an electrolyzer and a method for producing a catalyst supported on a nanostructure. The innovation is targeted towards the production of green hydrogen and discloses how carbon nanofibers can support the iridium catalyst load in a PEM-electrolyzer in a better way.
H2lab Inauguration 01

Inauguration of our in-house hydrogen laboratory

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.
