HyET’s electrochemical hydrogen compressor (EHC) is capable of simultaneous silent compression and selective purification of hydrogen gas. Our technology can compress hydrogen up to 1000 bar in a single-stage, is highly effective and scalable to meet customer specifications. As our compressor has no moving parts, it is silent, reliable and low-maintenance. With our technology hydrogen can be compressed and purified in one step. All of this results in lower CAPEX and OPEX compared to conventional mechanical compression.
|CAPEX (€ [kg h2/day]||150-1500||2000|
|OPEX (€ [kg H2]||< 1.0||1.5 - 2.0|
|Energy use (kWh/kg H2)||< 4||6.6|
HyET broke the world record electrochemical compression and achieved 1000 bar in 2011 with a single stage laboratory cell.
