Ohmium has completed a research study with the Polytechnic University of Turin (Italy) to create the next generation of catalyst materials for PEM electrolysis. Ohmium will increase its capabilities for future projects throughout the European Union, particularly in Spain, as a result of this arrangement.
Ohmium has designed a device for converting renewable energy into green hydrogen. Its technology helps customers reach their green energy goals in transportation, energy, and industrial projects, allowing them to realize their common vision of sustainability. In this way, the firm is able to innovate more quickly than many other electrolyzer companies, because of its original architecture, which allows for seamless and close collaboration with the greatest R&D institutes to swiftly transfer ideas into real-world production improvements.
The goal of this research partnership with the Polytechnic of Turin is to develop novel materials that can replace or minimize the number of precious metals used in present catalyst materials. R&D advances will make the production of green hydrogen more profitable and will resolve industrial concerns about the future supply of these materials. The collaboration’s first findings are expected in a year.
“Important relationships like this one with the Polytechnic of Turin allow Ohmium to accelerate technological developments and immediately apply them in our products,” says Arne Ballantine, CEO, and Co-Founder of Ohmium. Ohmium underlines its commitment to the battle against climate change and the transition to a sustainable future through this agreement.”
“We are thrilled to cooperate with a business-like Ohmium, a technological leader whose distinctive modular architecture enables quick translation of research discoveries into practical goods,” says Guido Saracco, Dean of the Polytechnic University of Turin. We will accelerate breakthroughs in PEM technology and make green hydrogen generation more viable in the European Union by integrating Ohmium’s technology with the University’s knowledge. We express our thanks to the corporation for providing our university with this chance.”
“The Polytechnic University of Turin is renowned as a premier electrochemical research center in the globe,” says Chock Karuppaiah, Ohmium’s CTO. Ohmium will be able to make use of the Polytechnic’s extensive knowledge in theoretical and applied research in PEM device development, as well as replace or minimize the amount of current-generation catalyst materials, thanks to the partnership. We plan to continue progressing in our technical solutions to make green hydrogen a contemporary reality through cooperative partnerships like this one.”
“It is a pleasure for us to partner with a fast-growing energy firm like Ohmium,” says Simelys Hernández, Head of R&D Projects at the Polytechnic University of Turin. The purpose of this research is to create a new generation of PEM electrolyzer catalyst materials that are low-cost, highly active, and stable. We are concentrating on the use of scalable technologies for the synthesis of catalysts and the construction of membrane and electrode assemblies, which will help to lower the cost of producing green hydrogen in the future.”
