ITM Power is partnering with Mott Corporation to cement ITM’s market leadership in electrolyser stack technology. Leveraging both companies’ expertise in science and technology, ITM and Mott are collaborating to further advance porous transport layers (PTL), which are a key component of proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolysis.

ITM’s stacks operate at the highest current density on the market, which results in lower stack cost due to reduced material use. The high current density brings very specific requirements for the PTL, which Mott have demonstrated capability to deliver. The two companies, both leaders in their fields with a strong R&D foundation and reputation for pioneering innovation, are working together to further enhance the efficiency and performance of ITM’s already proven PEM electrolysis technology, and to develop ITM’s next generation stack. ITM will work alongside Mott’s engineering teams to design and verify component customisation in support of ITM’s ongoing technology roadmap.

PTL distribute electrical current and fluids uniformly across the surface of the membrane. Through optimisation of the PTL, the performance of the core technology is maximised while providing a precise mechanical environment promoting long-term stability.

Dennis Schulz, CEO ITM Power, said: “Mott has demonstrated capability to meet our exacting requirements supported by stringent quality control and innovation. Together, we are progressing real-world technology to advance and future-proof the production of green hydrogen. Our collaboration will cement ITM’s technology leadership and play an important role in our supply chain.”

Boris Levin, CEO Mott, said: “As the largest provider of porous transport layers in the world, we’re proud to strengthen our partnership with ITM and support its stack technology. Mott’s porous transport layers are controlled to the tightest tolerances and have the most precise surface finish on the market, and we’re excited to continue working with ITM to enhance our technology and drive green hydrogen production. Our partnership is based on a shared commitment to excellence and precision.”
