Alchemr Selected to Present at the 2019 Industry Growth Forum
One of 30 cleantech startups selected globally, Alchemr will present its Flexolyzer™ AEM water electrolyzer technology to potential investors and other cleantech industry stakeholders.
Boca Raton, FL — (February 28, 2019) — Alchemr has been selected to present its Flexolyzer™ AEM water electrolyzer technology to investors and industry representatives at the 2019 Industry Growth Forum (IGF), May 9-10, in Denver. The IGF, hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory, is one of the nation’s premier events for cleantech entrepreneurs and other industry experts. Alchemr was selected from a field of more than 150 start-ups following an extensive selection process.
Alchemr’s vision is to enable a sustainable energy economy where all chemicals are made from air, water, and renewable electricity. Alchemr is poised to change the hydrogen market by enabling water electrolysis that runs at low voltages and high current densities without precious metals, using sustainable materials and processes. “Our proprietary technology stands well above the competition by producing hydrogen at competitive costs in today’s market (less than $2/kgH2); we do not need to wait for carbon taxes or other incentives to be profitable,” expressed Dr. Julian Sculley, CTO and acting CEO of Alchemr.
More than 500 cleantech investors, entrepreneurs, and industry representatives are expected to attend this year’s IGF in Denver. Among them will be 30 of the nation’s most promising start-up companies, including Alchemr, that will be presenting their cleantech innovations to potential investors and industry experts. In addition, the companies will compete for the 2019 Clean Energy Venture Awards.
“We are excited to see what cutting edge technologies the IGF presenters have in store for us this year,” said Richard Adams, director of NREL’s Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center that manages the IGF. “We’ve
been hosting the Industry Growth Forum for more than 20 years, and the technologies just keep getting more compelling. We’re addressing real market needs.”
