Nanotechnology with the Potential for Global Impact

How Spatial ALD solves the global iridium challenge to unlock for the scaling up of green hydrogen.

Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolysis, a key player in the green hydrogen market, faces a hurdle in its reliance on the rare and expensive catalyst, iridium. SparkNano’s Spatial ALD technology emerges as a game-changer, dramatically decreasing iridium usage by a factor of 40 or more. This breakthrough not only significantly cuts costs but also ensures the sustainable growth of the hydrogen economy by overcoming the constraints of global iridium supply.
