Solvay has launched a hydrogen platform that will bring together all the material and chemical solutions the Group has to offer to advance the emerging hydrogen economy.

At the heart of the platform is Solvay’s membrane technology (ion conducting polymer), which constitutes a necessary component in the process of hydrogen production. 

By creating the platform, Solvay is increasing its resources for the emerging market, including efforts in research and innovation. As from this year, Solvay is dedicating teams involving research, engineering, sales and marketing working together.

With its membrane technology, through the brand, Aquivion, which will be a key contributor to the electrolyser and fuel cells markets, Solvay also intends to bring other hydrogen applications and components to the market, such as hydrogen tanks. 

“The hydrogen economy has taken-off, and with our new hydrogen platform, we are partnering with our customers in the electrolyser and fuel cells space to make it happen,” said Solvay CEO, Ilham Kadri.

“Green hydrogen will be one of the most competitive low carbon solutions for transportation applications in the near future and I’m proud Solvay’s membrane technology will be a key element in the transition towards cleaner mobility, helping the fight against global climate change.” 

As part of the commitment, Solvay has also joined the Hydrogen Council, a global CEO-led initiative that brings together companies with a long-term ambition for hydrogen to foster the clean energy transition.
