LUVOCOM P – Thermoplastic powder coating of the highest corrosion protection class

Offshore applications, such as offshore wind farms with power outputs in the thousands of megawatts, continue to enjoy strong growth. The climatic conditions are extreme and demand high performance from the materials and components put to use. Yet it is not only offshore but also close to the coast where the combination of heat, wind and saltwater causes metal constructions to practically disappear. The protective measures in such highly corrosive environments are correspondingly time-consuming and cost-intensive.

Agfa’s ZIRFON membranes make alkaline electrolysis the most efficient technology for the production of hydrogen

A recent study by the Fraunhofer Institute using Agfa’s ZIRFON separator membranes confirms that the Alkaline ElectroLysis (AEL) technology can be as efficient as the Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) technology and is able to operate at high current densities. This presents AEL as the most cost efficient hydrogen production system.
