The electrolyzer and the green hydrogen economy

The time has come for the electrolyser, the key piece of equipment for the green hydrogen economy. The device uses electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. Whether that electricity comes from wind turbines, solar panels or a nuclear reactor, the entire process emits no greenhouse gases. Factories, power plants and even jet planes can burn this hydrogen without heating the Earth. Electrolysis has been known for over two centuries and from the mid-1920s to the 1960s it was the main way to produce hydrogen in oil refineries, fertilizer plants and chemical plants, when an alternative process emerged to remove hydrogen from hydrogen. natural gas. Since then the demand for electrolysers has declined significantly, but that is changing rapidly. You can read more about electrolysis on the Cummins website, including the company's role in "Hydrogen Technology". And by clicking on the image below you can access the "Literature & Resources" portal of the company Plug Power Inc., which has been innovating end-to-end solutions in the green hydrogen ecosystem. On the same portal, in "In the Media", there are several interesting articles.
