Johnson Matthey (JM), a global leader in sustainable technologies, has extended its partnership with SFC Energy to include a commitment from JM to develop and supply proton exchange membrane (PEM) components to support SFC Energy’s growth in hydrogen fuel cells.
SFC Energy AG is a leading provider of hydrogen and direct methanol fuel cells for stationary and mobile hybrid power solutions. With more than 60,000 fuel cells sold worldwide, SFC is expanding its offering of higher power hydrogen fuel cells for stationary markets.
JM and SFC’s long-term collaboration has to date centred around the supply of components for SFC’s direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) systems. JM and SFC have entered into an agreement where SFC will receive assets and technology to produce these components for DMFC at SFC’s new development and manufacturing site near Swindon, UK. JM and SFC plan for JM to supply catalysts for this application for at least 5 years. This agreement allows JM to focus on its strategic hydrogen fuel cells and electrolyser business, and SFC to secure the supply chain for this important part of their business.
