The main challenge to the development of hydrogen filling stations is the mechanical compressor. Existing compressors are expensive, noisy and have high operating costs (maintenance and energy costs). In addition, their availability is still low, which requires significant investment in safety and redundancy to ensure sufficient quality of service for the first users of hydrogen vehicles.
EIFHYTEC develops an innovative hydrogen compressor using a thermal rather than a mechanical effect. This technological breakthrough makes it possible to avoid all the constraints associated with mechanical compression: reduced investment and maintenance costs, absence of noise disturbance, absence of leaks, reduced wear and tear on components…
In addition, if the customer can use a waste heat source, energy consumption is significantly reduced compared to a mechanical compressor.
