Agfa today announced that it has joined the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance. The company is a globally recognized expert supplier of separator membranes for advanced alkaline electrolysis, a key component in the production of hydrogen.
The European Clean Hydrogen Alliance was established by the European Commission within the context of its EU Hydrogen Strategy launched on July 8.
This strategy attributes a role of major importance to the production of green hydrogen powered by renewable energy to achieve climate neutrality in Europe by 2050.
The European Clean Hydrogen Alliance brings together all stakeholders in the hydrogen value chain, including industry actors, national and regional governments, civil society, investors as well as research and technology organisations. With its investment and projects program, the Alliance will support the deployment of green hydrogen production, application demand and distribution.
For over ten years, Agfa has helped furthering the hydrogen production through the supply of advanced alkaline electrolysis membranes, branded ZIRFON, that feature outstanding efficiency and durability.
Green hydrogen gas is produced via electrolysis, a process that uses green electrical power for transforming water into oxygen and hydrogen. These gases are separated by a membrane mounted in the very heart of the electrolyzers. ZIRFON membranes for advanced alkaline electrolysis are appreciated by customers around the world for their sustained high productivity even in dynamic operating conditions. Another advantage is their excellent durability, which benefits both the reliability and maintenance cost of the electrolyzer system. Learn more on www.agfa.com/zirfon
