Gen-Hy, a French start-up offering innovative solutions for the production of green hydrogen, has announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Saint-Gobain High Performance Solutions.
The aim of this agreement is to launch a joint research programme to develop and industrialise future generations of AEM (Anion Exchange Membrane) membranes on a large scale.
To produce green hydrogen, Gen-Hy uses the water electrolysis method. To find a low-carbon, energy-efficient solution with the lowest cost, Gen-Hy has developed its own AEM membranes that improve electrolysis yields. Gen-Hy achieves yields of over 85% with high hydrogen purity, without the use of rare materials.
Through this partnership, Gen-Hy will benefit from Saint-Gobain’s recognised expertise in ceramics and the production of polymers used in AEM membranes, and will be able to explore new materials and production processes. The ultimate aim is to increase yields, lower production costs and ramp up electrolyser stacks for the production of green hydrogen.
Joining the Eiffage group in Gen-Hy’s capital, whose Minister Delegate for Industry Roland Lescure, in a letter sent to Gen-Hy’s Chairman, stated that “the Gen-Hy Cube project is clearly in line with the national and European strategy for the development of hydrogen”, Saint-Gobain is the second major industrial company to join Gen-Hy. This new collaboration validates the technological options chosen by Gen-Hy and demonstrates its ability to industrialise its products efficiently.
Gen-Hy has been designing and manufacturing energy solutions by incorporating proprietary technologies capable of harnessing hydrogen energy with reliability, safety and performance since 2019. Gen-Hy offers solutions for hydrogen production for mobility, storage, energy supply and high-capacity engines carbon-cleaning.
