AFC Energy happy with progress of AlkaMem technology

AlkaMem has been successfully scaled up in size within a commercial-sized fuel cell.

AFC Energy PLC -

AFC Energy (LON:AFC) said it continues to make good progress with the development of AlkaMem, its technology for electricity production from alkaline fuel cells.

Small scale membrane samples have been sent out, it said, while AlkaMem has been successfully scaled up in size within a commercial-sized fuel cell.

"AlkaMem has continued to show strong operational performance and the ability to scale this into a single commercial-scale fuel cell now means efforts can go into the design and engineering of the HydroX-Cell(S)TM fuel cell stack," said the statement.

Adam Bond, chief executive, added: The AlkaMem product series continues to gain traction with industry and academia and we are delighted to have commenced additional third-party membrane validation activities, in addition to that already conducted with [partner] De Nora. 

“The growth in high-density fuel cell systems, such as our HydroX-Cell(S) platform, alongside the cost and scaling benefit of alkaline water electrolysis means the adoption of AlkaMem has the potential to be a key enabler of both systems in the fast-growing hydrogen economy."
