The ANIONE project is a research and innovation project (under the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking) and will develop high-performance, cost effective and durable anion exchange membrane water electrolysis technology.
Uniresearch Role

Uniresearch has been assigned the task of project management facilitator and the role of work package leader for the activities related to dissemination, exploitation and communication. Uniresearch will be responsible for major external dissemination and communication activities.

The project aims to validate a 2 kW AEM electrolyser with a hydrogen production rate of about 0.4 Nm3/h (TRL 4). The aim is to contribute to the roadmap addressing the achievement of a wide scale decentralised hydrogen production infrastructure with the long-term goal to reach net zero CO2 emissions in EU by 2050.

To reach such objectives, innovative reinforced anion exchange membranes will be developed in conjunction with non-critical raw materials (CRMs) high surface area electrocatalysts and membrane-electrode assemblies. Cost-effective stack hardware materials and novel stack designs will contribute to decrease the capital costs of these systems.
