Advanced Ionics launches first demo of low-cost green hydrogen

Advanced Ionics launches first demo of low-cost green hydrogen
According to Advanced Ionics, its Symbiotic Electrolyzer uses process heat or waste heat across a wide temperature range—from 100 °C upwards to as hot as you can get it. By operating with steam, the electrolyzers tap into excess heat that is already available in industrial settings, lowering electricity use in tandem, usually below 35 kWh/kg, with 30 kWh/kg possible. Furthermore, the technology uses abundant and widely available components to keep capital costs low – no expensive platinum-group metals, no iridium, and no fluoropolymer membranes (graphic courtesy Advanced Ionics).

US-based low-cost green hydrogen technology start-up Advanced Ionics has announced its Early Access Program for advanced technology demonstrations with potential future customers.

According to a statement, the landmark announcement represents the first paid pilot study for Advanced Ionics, sponsored by the Repsol Foundation, which aims to support entrepreneurship at the forefront of industrial decarbonization technology, in this case in the form of cutting-edge hydrogen production processes.

Advanced Ionics’ symbion electrolyzer technology utilizes low-cost clean electricity and onsite process waste heat from industrial sites to enable the production of green hydrogen for less than a dollar per kilogram.

By harnessing process waste heat, Advanced Ionics uses up to 50 percent less electricity per kilogram of hydrogen produced than other technologies.

Participation in Advanced Ionics’ Early Access Program allows the Repsol Foundation to support technology validation and scaling, hence preparing the ground for early testers of full-scale Advanced Ionics electrolyzers.

We’ve seen extraordinary inbound interest and demand for our electrolyzer technology. Our Early Access Program allows us to harness that demand and work with the most innovative potential future customers to accelerate deployment. The advancements we’ve made reduce electricity cost by 20 – 50 percent using as little as 30 – 40 kWh/kg at the stack. This is a groundbreaking achievement that we look forward to bringing to industry as soon as possible said Chad Mason, CEO of Advanced Ionics.

The launch represents an important benefit: to promote green materials and chemicals to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

Providing early access and collaboration with future customers will accelerate Advanced Ionics’ path to commercial sales while giving customers confidence in the technology’s potential for their specific industrial use cases.

We’re pleased to be the first partner in Advanced Ionics’ pilot program, thereby exploring new ground in green hydrogen production and potential avenues to a net zero industrial future, said Homayoun Bagheri, the project’s engagement manager at the Entrepreneurs Fund of Repsol Foundation.
