Reducing the costs of PEM electrolysers by Cold Spray additive manufacturing!
Come and join our upcoming free online webinar and listen to Dr. Javier Sánchez, Innovative Director at CTP, who will share insights about Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing.
How can we reduce the cost of PEM electrolysers? When examining bipolar plates as a crucial component of any PEM electrolyser, several approaches are currently being investigated to lower their impact on the overall cost structure.
