Supply capacity ready to support green hydrogen electrolysers

We have readied our manufacturing capacity to help customers working on the large-scale production of game-changing green hydrogen, seen as the ‘fuel of the future’.

Thanks to recent investments, we are set to build bespoke filtration components for use in water electrolysis powered from renewable energy sources.

This ‘green hydrogen’ process is an environmentally friendly, economic alternative to more established hydrogen production that relies on fossil fuels and so produces CO2 emissions.

With green hydrogen technology, the only by-product from electrolysis is oxygen which has no negative environmental impact.  

Our filters and housings will be used in the filtration processes supporting the construction of electrolysers.

These help with the storage or active deployment of green hydrogen for downstream applications in industries such as transport, chemicals, agriculture and steel making.

Karl Pizzey, Amazon Filters’ Operations Director, said: “Green hydrogen promises to be a truly game-changing, clean energy technology to power vehicles, heat buildings and produce electricity.

“As the fuel of the future, it has the potential to help countries across the world to decarbonise, cut their dependence on fossil fuels and really go for net-zero emissions.

“Thanks to our investment programme in ‘quick and able’ manufacturing capacity at our Camberley production centre, we are ideally positioned to design, make and deliver highly bespoke filter vessels precisely in line with industrial need.”

The new capacity has come on stream as concerted action to move to green hydrogen production intensifies globally.

For example, India has announced a national mission to become a leading world hub for production and exports, the USA is investing heavily in its capabilities and the UK has committed to developing 5GW of low-carbon production capacity by 2030 with green hydrogen a key focus.

Companies are also researching the potential of green hydrogen as a clean and effective replacement for paraffin aviation fuel to make flying a more sustainable transport option.
