Frequently Asked Questions

Polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) is a type of water electrolysis advanced technology used to separate water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. The anode and cathode materials in a PEM electrolyzer are typically iridium oxide and platinum, respectively. As opposed to liquid electrolytes, acidic membranes such as perfluorosulfonic acid membranes are used as solid electrolytes. The membranes allow hydrogen cations to pass from anode to cathode while also separating the hydrogen and oxygen produced during the reaction. The kinetics of the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) in PEM electrolysis is faster than alkaline electrolysis due to the low pH of the electrolyte, the high active metal surface area of platinum electrodes, along with higher safety provided by the PEM electrolyzer due to the absence of any caustic electrolyte.

The demand for green and low-carbon emission technologies processes is anticipated to increase in the coming years and fuel the growth of the PEM electrolyzer market due to the increasing number of government initiatives and the growing emphasis on reducing carbon emission and achieving carbon neutrality. Moreover, the rising demand for advanced electrolysis technologies is broadening growth prospects for the global PEM electrolyzer market.
