Fuel Cells Works, Renewable Hydrogen Production in Sines Advances Through the GreenH2Atlantic Project

TFP Hydrogen Products is delighted to announce that the installation of a state of the art coating facility is currently underway at TFP’s North American site in Schenectady NY. The line is a necessary addition to support the rapid growth in the Hydrogen sector, where TFP Hydrogen’s coatings improve the efficiency and durability of PEM water electrolysers – effectively reducing the cost of green hydrogen production.

David Hodgson, Managing Director of TFP Hydrogen Products, comments that: “The incorporation of this specialised technology in Schenectady as well as the UK is an important step in the growth of TFP Hydrogen. It will provide the necessary capacity increase to respond to the increasing demand for our materials, as well as enabling us to support our North American customers’ requirements locally.”

The new line is based on the specialist coating technology that TFP Hydrogen has developed in the UK, delivering high performance, optimised coatings for components used in electrochemical processes, such as PEM water electrolysis. Green hydrogen will play a critical part of the global transition to sustainable energy, and PEM electrolysers are central to its generation, utilising the energy from renewable sources such as wind and photovoltaics to produce hydrogen. TFP Hydrogen’s specialist coatings deliver industry-leading performance in PEM water electrolysers; increasing the performance, efficiency and durability of the systems and ultimately reducing the long term cost of this green hydrogen generation.

In addition to their use in water electrolysis, TFP Hydrogen’s materials are used to increase system lifetime and performance in a variety of other electrochemical technologies. These applications range from hydrogen fuel cells and batteries to advanced wound-care, water purification and even the regeneration of coral reefs.

About Technical Fibre Products: & TFP Hydrogen Products:

Technical Fibre Products (TFP) produce advanced materials that make a difference; enabling world class innovators in the development of solutions for a cleaner, greener and safer world.

Part of James Cropper PLC, TFP is a global business, with sites in the UK and USA and a worldwide sales and support network. TFP’s materials provide solutions across a wide range of markets such as aerospace, defence, automotive and construction, as well as in renewable energy, where there is a strong focus on enabling green technologies, such as fuel cells, green hydrogen generation, wind energy and electric vehicles.

Growth in the renewable energy sector and the hydrogen economy is of strategic importance in TFP’s vision to enable a cleaner, greener future.  In the next 5 years the aim is for the majority of sales to come from applications that support the Global drive to net zero carbon emissions, enabling the energy transition.  TFP specialises in enabling our customers to develop market leading solutions, in areas such as PEM water electrolysis, hydrogen fuel cells, wind energy and carbon capture. To facilitate this, the company has strengthened our offering in the rapidly growing Hydrogen sector with the acquisition of TFP Hydrogen Products in 2021. TFP Hydrogen produces coated components for PEM water electrolysis which reduce the cost of producing Green Hydrogen, a critical part of the global transition to sustainable energy. In addition, TFP’s materials not only reduce the cost of hydrogen generation, they also facilitate it’s use as our nonwovens are used as Gas Diffusion Layer (GDL) substrate in many of the world’s hydrogen fuel cells.

TFP pride ourselves on being the experts in our field; developing and manufacturing high quality, specialised materials that can be designed to meet a customer’s specific needs. Our portfolio includes high performance nonwovens, coatings and catalysts, all of which are designed to add value by increasing performance, system efficiency, durability, adding functionality or aiding fabrication.
