In a process known as electrolysis, an apparatus known as an electrolyzer uses electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. The electrolyzer system produces hydrogen gas by electrolysis.
The excess oxygen is either discharged into the environment, or it can be trapped or kept to provide other industrial operations or, in some situations, medicinal gases. Since hydrogen is an energy carrier, it can be used to power any hydrogen fuel cell electric application, including trains, buses, trucks, and data centres.
The hydrogen gas can be either compressed or liquefied for storage. An electrolyzer has a cathode (negative charge), an anode (positive charge), and a membrane in its most basic configuration.
Pumps, vents, storage tanks, a power source, a separator, and other parts are also included in the overall system. Within the cell stacks, there is an electrochemical reaction called water electrolysis.
Water (H20) is split into its component molecules, hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2), by the proton exchange membrane (PEM) when electricity is delivered to the anode and cathode (O2).
The size of these electrolyzers can be adjusted to accommodate a range of input and output ranges, from tiny industrial plants installed in shipping containers to massive centralised production facilities that can provide hydrogen via trucks or be connected to pipelines.
Proton exchange membrane (PEM), alkaline, and solid oxide electrolysers are the three primary categories of electrolyzers.
By operating at high temperatures, Bloom’s electrolyzer consumes 15 percent less electricity than other electrolyzer technologies when electricity is the sole input source.
The firm intends to be a pioneer in facilitating the generation of Green Hydrogen, hence transforming ‘ in clean energy.
The proton exchange membrane (PEM) hydrogen electrolyzer is at the core of Green Hydrogen production since it employs renewable energy to split water into hydrogen and oxygen.
Green Hydrogen, the future pollution-free fuel, is sector neutral and will aid India’s shift to sustainable energy. Green hydrogen has no carbon footprint and may be used as fertilizer.
The Global Fuel Cell Electrolyzer market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
