ELECTROLYZER PERFORMANCE

Avium catalyst technology uses non-precious metals to meet or exceed the performance of precious metal catalysts. Our state-of-the-art amorphous iron-nickel oxyhydroxide catalyst can be made cost-effectively using green chemistry techniques. By leveraging the compatibility of our aqueous catalyst suspensions with alkaline electrolyte, we have developed a new method to deposit our catalysts in situ, while the electrolyzer is operating.  Our patent pending “Catalyte™” technology opens up the potential to significantly reduce stack size, improve average efficiency over the electrolyzer lifetime, and possibly eliminate the need for periodic stack replacement. ​

 

These factors combine to give us the potential to reduce initial capital costs by up to 25% and lower the total levelized cost of hydrogen production by 27% or more.
