Project Logo

Membrane based Purification of Hydrogen System, or MEMPHYS, aims to develop a hydrogen purification system to reuse hydrogen from different industrial sources.

Often hydrogen could be recovered from biomass fermentation, industrial pipelines, underground caves and industrial waste gas streams. However, it is too impure for direct usage in fuel cells.

The system is to be based on a membrane hydrogen purification module, with the aim of being clean, reliable and inexpensive. It is also intended to combine with other systems to not only filter hydrogen, but also to compress it to 200 bar for use in various applications.

The initiative is part of the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH2JU), a sub-grouping under Horizon 2020 that focuses on hydrogen and fuel cells.

As part of the Horizon 2020 initiative, MEMPHYS receives funding from the EU and has a budget of about 2 Million Euros.
