Johnson Matthey, SFC Energy sign multi-million pound deal & joint development agreement for supply of more sustainable methanol fuel cell components
Johnson Matthey (JM) has won a new multi-million pound agreement to provide 400,000 Direct Methanol MEA (membrane electrode assembly) fuel cell components to SFC Energy AG (SFC), a provider of hydrogen and direct methanol fuel cells for stationary and mobile hybrid power solutions. The agreement is starting in February 2021 for a duration of more than three years.
Additionally, both partners signed a joint development agreement to further deepen their collaboration. JM has been working with SFC for almost 20 years with the goal of creating versatile fuel cell solutions.
Typical applications for SFC Energy fuel cells technology are either back-up or off-grid power sources and operate as hybrid systems in combination with batteries and solar. They provide clean and efficient energy in a wide range of applications such as:
Radio tower sites and critical infrastructures as reliable and sustainable back-up power supply.
On- and offshore measurement systems for the global wind industry.
On-board power supply for mobile homes and authority vehicles.
Smart traffic applications.
Measuring stations and many others in the field of Surveillance and Environmental Technology.
