DOE funding encourages transition towards commercializing electrolysis technology

The US is set to see a significant investment in electrolysis technologies thanks to funding received by Thyssenkrupp Nucera US and De Nora. This funding will enable the companies to automate gigawatt-scale alkaline water electrolysis production lines, positioning them better in the US market. The grant is part of a larger $750 million fund for 52 projects across 24 states, under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

Aside from their work in the US, Thyssenkrupp Nucera is also partnering with Fraunhofer IKTS in Europe to advance high-temperature solid oxide electrolyser cell (Soec) technology. Together, they plan to move this technology towards industrial manufacturing and application, with a pilot plant expected to start production by the first quarter of 2025. This strategic partnership will allow Thyssenkrupp Nucera to produce and use stacks based on the Fraunhofer technology.

The companies highlighted that Soec technology will have numerous benefits for industries like green steel, ammonia, methanol, and fertilizers, where industrial waste heat is generated during production. By reducing electricity consumption and eliminating the need for rare precious metals, high-temperature technology offers a more sustainable solution for these industries. This partnership represents a significant step forward in advancing green hydrogen production technologies.
