French industry-academic collaboration to focus on PEM electrolysis
Elogen, a French leader in PEM (proton electron membrane) electrolysis, Université Paris-Saclay and France’s national scientific research institute, CNRS, have signed an agreement to create a joint research laboratory.
With the creation of a joint laboratory, Elogen, Université Paris-Saclay and CNRS aim to improve current PEM electrolysis processes and explore the use of the different materials available in quantity to accelerate large-scale green hydrogen production. The Motorship notes that research efforts to improve the efficiency and reliability of electrolyser technology is a key area of focus for the reduction of the cost of producing green hydrogen via electrolysis.
The joint laboratory will be located at the Orsay Institute of Molecular Chemistry and Materials (ICMMO - CNRS/Université Paris-Saclay), which focuses on organic and inorganic chemistry as well as molecular and materials sciences.
