Madrid, 25 May, 2022 - Ohmium International, Inc., a green hydrogen company that designs, manufactures, and deploys Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolyzers, continues to make green hydrogen more cost-effective by reducing cost and improving performance through collaboration agreements with leading European Universities and Institutions. Specifically, the Silicon Valley-based energy company has closed a research collaboration with Politecnico di Torino University (Turin, Italy) to develop a project focused on the next generation catalyst materials for PEM Electrolysis. Through this agreement, Ohmium will enhance its capabilities for future projects within the European Union, including Spain.
Ohmium has created the idoneous product to convert renewable energy into green hydrogen. Its technology enables customers to achieve their green energy goals in transportation, energy and industrial projects, making their shared vision of sustainability a reality. In this sense, the company is able to innovate faster than many other electrolyzer companies, as their game-changing design enables smooth and close collaboration with top R&D institutes to rapidly translate innovations into actual production improvements.
This research collaboration with Politecnico di Torino focuses on the synthesis of the new materials that replace or reduce the amount of precious metals in the current generation catalyst materials. The R&D advances will make green hydrogen production more cost effective and address the concerns arisen in the industry about the availability of these materials in the future. The first results of the collaboration are expected in 1-year.
Arne Ballantine, CEO and Co-Founder at Ohmium said: “Powerful collaborations such as this one with Politecnico di Torino enable Ohmium to accelerate the technology advancements and rapidly implement them into our products. Through this agreement, Ohmium reaffirms its commitment to fighting climate change and transitioning into a sustainable future.”
Guido Saracco, Dean of Politecnico di Torino added: "We are pleased to collaborate with a company like Ohmium, a technology leader whose unique modular design enables rapid translation of the research results into the real products. By combining Ohmium’s technology and the university’s expertise, we will accelerate the advancements in the PEM technology and make green hydrogen production more cost effective in European Union. We reiterate our gratitude to the firm for the opportunity offered to our university”.
Chock Karuppaiah, CTO at Ohmium explained: “Politecnico di Torino is known as a world leading electrochemical research institute. The agreement enables Ohmium to leverage Politecnico’s deep expertise in theoretical and applied research in PEM device development and replace or reduce the amount of current generation catalyst materials. Through cross collaborations like this one we intend to continue advancing our technical solutions in making green hydrogen a reality today.”
Simelys Hernández, Responsible of R&D project at Politecnico di Torino added: “We are honored to collaborate with a fast-growing energy company like Ohmium. Our goal in this project is to develop a new generation of low cost, highly active and stable catalysts materials for the PEM electrolyzers. Our focus is in exploiting scalable technologies for the catalyst’s synthesis and the membrane-electrode-assemblies preparation, to contribute to lower the green Hydrogen production cost for a sustainable future.”
