Advanced alkaline electrolysis technology for pressurised H2 production with potential for near-zero energy loss
Within the HYPRAEL project, researchers at Fraunhofer IFAM in Dresden are developing and analyzing catalysts and substrate materials that are corrosion stable as well as electrochemically active at 120 °C and 40 wt.% KOH. Furthermore, the degradation of various catalysts on the substrate under the ambitious operating conditions will be electrochemically evaluated in preliminary tests. In addition, a test rig will be set up to evaluate the suitable electrodes under additionally increased operating conditions up to 80 bar and 120 °C. The best candidates will then be delivered to a project partner for benchmark cell testing.
This project is co-funded by the European Union.
