Spotlight on… Clean Power Hydrogen (CPH2)

Dr Nigel Williamson and Joe Scott established CPH2 in the UK in 2016, four years after first establishing the company in Ireland. The pair developed a Membrane-Free Electrolyser™ to produce hydrogen faster, more reliably and more cost effectively than other electrolysers.

The IP-protected Membrane-Free Electrolyser™ (MFE) with cryogenic separation delivers pure hydrogen and pure oxygen as separate gases. The system is simple, safe, and sustainable. Made from readily available, reusable, or recyclable materials, it does not require precious Platinum Group Metals such as Palladium or Platinum for membranes or powerful catalysts.

The company supports green hydrogen for a cleaner environment. Brown, blue, grey hydrogen produced by Steam Methane Reformation, or the gasification process emits CO2 into the atmosphere or requires the emissions to be captured and stored. But the company has shown that only green hydrogen produced by renewable electricity means zero emissions.

The company has a string of achievements to its name. After months of hard work, CPH2 was admitted to the London Stock Exchange Alternative Investment Market in February this year. The development means the company can raise further funds to assist with the rapid growth of the group and will help to penetrate an extremely fast-growing hydrogen market. Upon admission the company was awarded the London Stock Exchange’s Green Economy Mark, which recognises companies that derive 50% or more of their total annual revenues from products and services that contribute to the global green economy. 

In April, the company announced it had received a purchase order from AFCryo, a New Zealand based manufacturer of composite cryostats and cryogenic cooling systems, for the sale of a 1MW MFE220 electrolyser unit to be delivered in early 2023.

This is the second 1MW electrolyser unit that AFCryo has purchased within 18 months.

In March, the company also received a purchase order from ATOME Energy plc (“ATOME”) for the sale of a 1MW MFE220 electrolyser unit to be delivered at the end of this year and deployed in ATOME’s Paraguay mobility project.
