Alchemr is developing scalable, durable and low-cost anion exchange membrane electrolyzers.
Our electrolyzers cost less than 30% of PEM electrolyzers!
The cost of electricity generated by solar photovoltaic and offshore/onshore wind turbines is dropping. Producing clean hydrogen from renewable power through water electrolysis creates an additional revenue stream for power producers, and a low-cost clean hydrogen source for hydrogen consumers.
why anion exchange membrane electrolysis
Anion exchange membrane electrolyzers combine the best of proton exchange membrane electrolyzers and alkaline electrolyzers
In anion exchange membrane (AEM) electrolyzers, hydroxide ions flow across the membrane instead of hydrogen ions. This fundamental difference allows AEM electrolyzers to operate without the requirement of precious noble metals (unlike PEM), thereby significantly reducing the CAPEX of our system but maintaining high hydrogen production rates unlike commercial alkaline electrolyzers.
