GKN Powder Metallurgy is reinforcing its role as a supplier of cutting-edge technology solutions for the future with the launch of GKN Hydrogen, its second business unit focused on advanced technologies after GKN Additive.
GKN Hydrogen is pioneering clean, emission-free green hydrogen storage to help companies and communities around the world achieve their carbon neutrality targets today and in the future, leveraging the company’s world-leading role in powder metal solutions.
The 100% recyclable product suite from GKN Hydrogen has been developed and optimized over the last few years to become the most efficient and safe hydrogen storage solution available. The reliable systems produce green hydrogen from variable renewable energy sources and store it compactly and safely in metal hydride for long periods of time.
Green hydrogen can be used directly or converted into electricity and heat for a variety of applications when needed. From emergency power backup and off-grid energy supply to residential homes, maritime transport, and large-scale manufacturing, the modular system architecture allows for full flexibility.
“GKN Hydrogen is an incredibly exciting venture that will play a key role at the forefront of the energy transition. Using a state-of-the-art technology with far-reaching implications and extensive scope for development, we are helping to solve the issue of hydrogen storage and provide a clean energy for all that is green, safe and compact.. We created GKN Hydrogen after consulting with colleagues from across GKN Powder Metallurgy and are proud to be seen as an enabler for a decentralized, carbon neutral energy supply infrastructure. We are very excited to introduce our new business unit to the world on May 11, 2021. Our mission is to stop climate change, for ourselves and for generations to come.”Peter Oberparleiter, Chief Executive Officer at GKN Powder Metallurgy
