Schaeffler develops new technologies for the industrialisation of hydrogen production

1 min read

Schaeffler’s core competencies in materials engineering, materials forming, surface technology and electrochemistry will play a major role in the development of new products and solutions for hydrogen technology.

The energy chain of green hydrogen is a pathway to a carbon neutral, sustainable future. Consequently, it offers significant potential in the fight against climate change. Schaeffler excels in technologies that can be used at both ends of this chain: hydrogen use in fuel cells, and hydrogen production by means of electrolysis.

With this in mind, Schaeffler is acting as the consortium lead on a sub-project as part of H2Giga, a hydrogen project, the objective of which is to develop systems and methods for the industrial production of electrolyzer systems and components which are needed to make green hydrogen widely available and cost effective.

“Stack Scale up – Industrialising PEM Electrolysis”. Comprising nine partners from industry and research, the sub-project aims to fast-track the development of stack technologies and large-series production processes for low-temperature electrolysis core components. In this project, Schaeffler’s core competencies in materials engineering, materials forming, surface technology and electrochemistry will play a decisive role in the development of new products and solutions for hydrogen technology. Moreover, its expertise in industrialisation will help to translate the resulting innovations rapidly into large-series production.
