Grant from US spurs effort to commercialize electrolyser technology

In the US, Thyssenkrupp Nucera and its partner De Nora have received significant funding to work on the automation of gigawatt-scale alkaline water electrolysis production lines. This grant is part of $750 million in funding for 52 projects across the country, marking the first federal investment in electrolysis technologies under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

Meanwhile, Thyssenkrupp Nucera is preparing for the future of the electrolysis market in Europe by partnering with research institute Fraunhofer IKTS. The aim is to develop high-temperature solid oxide electrolyser cell (Soec) technology for industrial manufacturing and application. By early 2025, a pilot plant built by Fraunhofer IKTS will produce high-temperature electrolysis stacks using Soec technology, initially in small quantities. Thyssenkrupp Nucera has also obtained a license to produce and use stacks based on Fraunhofer technology.

The companies believe that Soec technology will revolutionize industries such as green steel, ammonia, methanol, and fertilizers by significantly reducing electricity consumption and eliminating the need for rare precious metals. This innovative technology utilizes industrial waste heat generated during production, making it an environmentally friendly and cost-effective solution for various industries.
