Ohmium to sponsor CSIR-CECRI research on advanced materials for electrolyzers


USA-headquartered Ohmium International, a polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) electrolyzer specialist, today announced it has signed an agreement with India’s CSIR-Central Electrochemical Research Institute (CSIR-CECRI), Karaikudi, to sponsor CSIR-CECRI research into new materials to support the next-generation electrolyzer technology. The collaboration has started on February 4, 2022, for three years duration.

Chockkalingam Karuppiah, chief technology officer, Ohmium, said: “CECRI is recognized as a world leader in electrochemical research. This sponsorship enables Ohmium to leverage CECRI’s deep expertise and resources, which will benefit both our current and the next-generation technology.”

Kalaiselvi, Director, CSIR-CECRI, added: “We’re delighted to work with a technology leader like Ohmium. Our research efforts will focus on material innovation, deployable as a sustainable solution provider.”

Ohmium manufactures electrolyzers in India through a subsidiary. Through its suite of electrochemical products, it enables industries to deploy green hydrogen for a sustainable future.

Arne Ballentine, CEO of Ohmium International, said, “One of the things that makes Ohmium really special is our ability to rapidly translate R&D advances into actual production. It’s a function of our people, our unique modular technology, and powerful collaborations like this one with CECRI.”

“The world must make the transition to green hydrogen to meet its net-zero emission targets. Ohmium’s collaboration with CSIR-CECRI will help ensure that not only is green hydrogen cost-effective but also globally scalable to meet the world’s demand.”
