Clean Power Hydrogen (CPH2) is a leading developer of Membrane-Free Electrolysers™ designed to produce hydrogen and pure oxygen simply, safely, and sustainably.
Dr. Nigel Williamson and Joe Scott established CPH2 (Ireland) in December 2012 with the ambition to help clean up the environment for our children and future generations. Entering the green technology sector; a high growth and profitable market, they developed a Membrane-Free Electrolyser™ to produce hydrogen faster, more reliably, and more cost-effectively than the incumbent methods which had barriers to adoption including scalability.
Hydrogen is widely recognised as being the green fuel of the future. It will enable populations and countries to attain true net zero carbon status. CPH2 realised that the cleanest way to produce hydrogen was by membrane-free water electrolysis using cryogenic separation and in doing so it would be a less expensive and more robust technology.
The company opened their Technology Innovation Centre in Doncaster, South Yorkshire in 2016 CPH2 and now employs 15 people and is ready to start full scale production and already has an international pipeline of business.
