HYDROLITE is an industry-backed venture formed in 2016, wholly owned by Elbit Systems Ltd. (Israel) and comprising the technical team from the former Elbit Energy unit. With more than a decade of experience in development of AEMFC technology, HYDROLITE holds world-leading alkaline exchange membrane electrode and stack technology.
Over the past decade HYDROLITE has developed extensive, proprietary materials technology, pilot-scale production and device operation capabilities, and holds an extensive IP portfolio of 67 patent cases with more in the pipeline.
The team is strongly geared towards hydrogen systems and materials engineering expertise, with more than 90% of the staff directly engaged in technical development.
As the global demand for hydrogen solutions starts to grow exponentially – in recognition of the critical role of hydrogen as a carbon-free fuel in a zero-carbon economy – HYDROLITE’s superior Alkaline Exchange Membrane technology offers a compelling solution that combines the cost advantages of liquid Alkaline Fuel Cells and Electrolyzers, with the high performance of solid-state Proton Exchange Membrane devices.
Fuel Cells and Electrolyzers – respectively, hydrogen-to-electricity and electricity-to-hydrogen conversion devices are the workhorses that will facilitate the emergence of a global, green hydrogen economy. With the help of our unique Alkaline Exchange Membrane technology, our mission is to become a first-choice and lowest-cost provider of these key enabling systems.
The grand global challenge of the 21st century is to achieve deep decarbonization of the global economy to mitigate dangerous climate change without sacrificing quality of life and prosperity achieved over the course of the 20th century with the help of phenomenal technological advancement.
We embrace the notion that this critical challenge is also a unique opportunity. Our technology provides a means to capitalize on that opportunity, with the help of a clear long-term vision of enabling green hydrogen to become a universal carbon-free fuel, supplementing battery and other storage technologies to facilitate maximum renewables penetration and deep decarbonization.
We believe that achieving a post-carbon global community is not only necessary and achievable, but also financially beneficial to the facilitators of this transition, while recognizing that this combination can only be realized through dedicated, relentless and forward-looking engineering and materials development, guided by a deep understanding of the technologies involved and the challenges to be met.
We have accumulated such understanding over more than ten years of AEM materials, device and systems development and are now fully focused on successful roll-out of reliable, low-cost solutions.
