German hydrogen storage startup Hydrogenious Technologies has launched its first commercial hydrogen storage and logistics system using liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC) technology.

The system includes a Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) electrolyzer that generates hydrogen using solar power and a Hydrogenious StorageBOX that uses LOHC technology to enable storage without losses for extended periods of time.

This is the first demonstration of the LOHC technology on a commercial scale.

Key investment

Andrew Hinkly, Executive Head of Marketing at Anglo American Platinum, which holds shares in Hydrogenious Technology, said, “We are hugely proud of what Hydrogenious Technologies have been able to achieve in what has been a rather short space of time. The inauguration laid the pathway for the first commercial deliveries and a growing order book.”

Anglo American Platinum also invested in Hydrogenious Technologies’ first financing round in 2014.
