Chemours studying capacity expansions to support electrolysis and fuel cell technologies

By Mary Page Bailey |

The Chemours Co. (Wilmington, Del.) announced it is investigating capacity investments to support its growing Hydrogen Economy business. This increased capacity in ionomers would support the demand growth within water electrolysis and fuel cell technology.

The company is currently considering potential locations in the United States and Europe, with an eye to local community engagement and collaboration. Chemours continues to set the standard in responsible manufacturing and this capacity will help the company advance their goal to continue shifting the portfolio to sustainable offerings that make a specific contribution to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).

“The hydrogen economy demand is growing exponentially and our products are truly at its core,” said Denise Dignam, President of Advanced Performance Materials at Chemours. “To meet this demand requires private/public partnerships with the right partners—partners that will be an asset to the community—responsible. And, we believe Chemours is who communities, regions, and countries should look to in order to deliver capacity necessary to achieve clean energy while maintaining a focus on protecting human health and the environment.”

The capacity investment will be focused on ionomers that support the Nafion platform, which is known for unparalleled performance and durability. Nafion ion exchange membranes provide a clean energy solution through water electrolysis creating green hydrogen from renewable power. Fuel cells—another Nafion membrane application—convert hydrogen to electricity, an alternative to carbon-based energy sources.
