Agfa sets a new efficiency standard in the production of green hydrogen with its ZIRFON UTP 500+ electrolysis membrane

Delivering higher efficiency, Agfa’s new ZIRFON UTP 500+ membrane for advanced electrolysis lowers the cost of green hydrogen production

The increasing number of commercial initiatives often launched within the context of governmental strategies – such as the European Hydrogen strategy – confirm green hydrogen as the right technology for achieving ambitious global decarbonization targets. For a rapid deployment of hydrogen applications cost reductions are to be realized, mainly by scaling-up but also by technological innovations in electrolyzer components, including membranes.
Whereas today Agfa’s ZIRFON UTP 500 electrolysis membrane is already acknowledged around the world for its best-in-class sustained high productivity, the new ZIRFON UTP 500+ allows for an even 2,5% higher yield* of hydrogen gas and sets a new standard for advanced alkaline electrolysis. (* measured at 10kA/m2)
Marc Van Damme, Agfa’s Vice President Electronic Print and Films & Foils, comments: “The launch of ZIRFON UTP 500+ is the result of continuous efforts to enable our customers to produce green hydrogen at competitive cost. Additionally, the further expansion of the ZIRFON portfolio demonstrates Agfa’s confidence in the advanced alkaline electrolysis technology for the future.”
