The company believes this will be a major breakthrough in the race to drive down the production cost of zero-emission green hydrogen, delivering a significantly lower cost than current state-of-the-art coatings.  The coating will accelerate the transition to a hydrogen economy by radically reducing production costs. It also addresses the key challenge of making green hydrogen competitive against fossil fuels. 

nanoFLUX, an advanced metallic-alloy coating applied to the electrodes, promotes the formation and release of gas bubbles within the electrolyser. This enhances the overall efficiency of the process. This innovative coating has been combined with a proprietary catalyst that accelerates the hydrogen generation reaction.

An independent assessment conducted by E4Tech (part of the ERM Group), a leading international consulting firm focussed on sustainable energy technologies, has confirmed the breakthrough cost-benefit advantage provided by nanoFLUX. 

“We are delighted with the results of the external benchmarking analysis that demonstrate the potential of nanoFLUX” said Dr Ian Russell, CEO of OnS. “The Company is working with a number of leading electrolyser manufacturers to test and, in due course, scale up the production of nanoFLUX to meet the challenge of significantly reducing the cost of green hydrogen production”.
