WHAT IS ELECTROLYSIS
Water + Electricity = Hydrogen
Hydrogen’s ability to combine with oxygen was first noted by Henry Cavendish in 1766. The first electrolyzer subsequently appeared in 1800 when Nicolson and Carlisle induced a static charge into water. More than 200 years later Hydrogenics continues to evolve and improve on these fundamental discoveries.
Electrolysis cells are characterized by their electrolyte type. There are two types of low temperature electrolysis where Hydrogenics is active:
Alkaline and Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM).
Hydrogenics’ HySTAT® electrolysers are installed at hundreds of industrial plants, power stations, energy storage
facilities and fueling stations around the world.
They are safe and reliable systems used by all major industrial gas suppliers in heavy-duty applications.
