Permascand Top Holding AB (publ) (“Permascand”), an independent technology-driven manufacturer of electrochemical solutions, today announced that the company has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Verdagy – a spin-out of Chemetry – for the development of a novel electrochemical cell to produce green hydrogen.
The LOI will build on Chemetry’s successful relationship and development activities for the commercialization of electrochemical cells for Chemetry’s eShuttle® EDC process.
The purpose of the LOI is to evaluate the potential structure and process to develop and commercialize the electrochemical cell that will enable the Verdagy green hydrogen process.
Peter Lundström, CEO at Permascand commented: “We are excited to be part of this collaboration with Verdagy, offering our expertise for Verdagy’s hydrogen process commercialization and supplying the electrochemical market with high-end technology solutions that contributes to accelerating the global green transition”.
Verdagy is operating a pilot plant for a novel process to produce green hydrogen at its site in Moss Landing, California. Following the LOI, Permascand will use its expertise to ensure full reliability and a competitive cost base for the commercial electrolyzer that is a key part of Verdagy’s process.
Marty Neese, Verdagy’s CEO, said: “Collaborating with Permascand on the manufacturing scale-up of our hydrogen electrochemical cell is a key step towards rapidly commercializing Verdagy’s hydrogen technology. Through leveraging Permascand’s wealth of experience, Verdagy is confident we will be able to manufacture a reliable cell while at the same time accelerate the commercialization of our green hydrogen technology. Verdagy’s technology will safely and sustainably deliver green hydrogen at the costs necessary to enable hydrogen to be a key part of the carbon reduction needed to reduce the impact of climate change. We are very excited to have Permascand as a partner on our path to commercialization.”
