Johnson Matthey, a global leader in sustainable technologies, announced today a Memorandum of Understanding with Plug Power, a leading provider of turnkey green hydrogen solutions. Under the MoU the companies will develop a roadmap to accelerate the joint development of high-performance electrolyser technology with improved durability, increased performance, and greater energy efficiency than systems available today.
The collaboration will focus on the development, validation and incorporation of JM’s advanced materials in Plug Power’s leading electrolyser systems. The companies will also investigate the development of a closed loop recycling system for the critical platinum group metals (pgm) used as catalysts in these systems.
Johnson Matthey and Plug Power believe strongly in building the hydrogen economy and have a wealth of experience across a broad spectrum of the hydrogen economy value chain. Johnson Matthey has a proven track record and deep expertise in developing innovative high-performance coating materials, CCM technology and as the world’s largest secondary refiner of pgm is perfectly placed to drive the creation of closed loop recycling systems within the green hydrogen supply chain.
