The reasons for such a deal according to the article are

  • Johnson Matthey and Hystar, have announced a strategic partnership to develop and manufacture cutting-edge electrolysers
  • Johnson Matthey will provide membrane electrode assemblies (MEAs) as part of Hystar’s commercialization ramp-up.

Hystar plans to use the MEAs in their PEM electrolysers in the HyPilot project. The HyPilot project is significant for the hydrogen economy as it represents a groundbreaking in-field demonstration of Hystar’s one-megawatt PEM electrolysers under real-world conditions. This project aims to verify Hystar’s patented technology under realistic field conditions, showcasing the capabilities of large-scale green hydrogen production. The project’s key objectives include:
