Hydrogen gas supply shortage forces Höganäs to close production


An unanticipated hydrogen gas supply constraint has forced Höganäs, Sweden, to close its metal powder production in Niagara Falls, New York, which has resulted in the loss of 33 full-time workers.

An automotive and aircraft brake pad manufacturer, food fortification company, and water treatment company, Höganäs produces metal powder in its Niagara Falls facility. A full shutdown of the Niagara Falls plant is scheduled for December 1.

In August 2021, Höganäs’ long-term hydrogen gas provider stated with short notice that they were closing, resulting in the facility’s hydrogen gas supply being eliminated. In order to minimize the consequences and find a solution to this difficulty, Höganäs has looked at all possible options.
