The current environmental challenges related to climate change and rarefication of fossil fuel energies require new clean and green sources of energy, including hydrogen. However, 95% of hydrogen production still relies on fossil fuels. Water electrolysis using renewable energy sources like wind or solar power is one of the clean production methods for hydrogen. Catalysts Coated membranes consist of precisely structured catalysts, typically platinum (cathode) and iridium (anode) that are applied to solid membranes in a way which maximises hydrogen production.
In this webinar we will present the technology behind catalysts coated membranes and the challenges of its development and production, and detail how new ways of generating nano particles and depositing those particles via printing contributes to tackle those challenges for a simplified, scalable and clean production of CCM’s. Following the presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to interact in the live Q&A session.
