Abstract

Water electrolysis is a verified method for hydrogen production from electric power. Polymer exchange membrane (PEM) water electrolysis is expected to produce hydrogen efficiently and dynamically, particularly for using hydrogen as an energy-storage medium for renewable sources. Oxides of the rutile structure, like IrO2, are typically as anode catalysts because of their high electrocatalytic activity for oxygen evolution in acidic media. Platinum is typically used at the cathode [1]. The primary objective of the PrimoLyzer project is to develop, construct, and test a cost-minimised highly efficient and durable PEM-Electrolyzer stack aimed for integration with PEMFC ?CHPs. Catalyst development has important role in this work.
