Founded in 2017, Ontario-based Hydrogen Optimized is taking hydrogen production to the next level. The company has a solution that is not only green, but also scalable. This kind of hydrogen mass-scale production could be useful for any large energy consuming application.
Hydrogen Optimized’s system is called “RuggedCellTM” and uses high-current water electrolysis to convert electricity to hydrogen. This electricity is coming from renewable sources such as wind or solar, which makes the hydrogen green. This has caught the eye of some major market place and resulted in a partnership/ investment from ABB.
Auto Trendy’s take:
When looking at the automotive industry, we can see the popularity of battery- and hydrogen-electric vehicles growing. On one hand, it’s already a great improvement to see that the vehicles are not polluting while driving. On the other hand, the electricity or hydrogen that is used is not always green. With technologies like the one of Hydrogen Optimized, using these “green vehicles” would become even more sustainable.
