ECO-H2 project

For hydrogen production by electrolysis at lower cost.

ECO-Hproject presentation

The ECO-H2 project is a collaborative R&D project supported by the Occitanie Region as part of the Readynov 2018 call for projects. The consortium brings together two partners: the Chemical Engineering Laboratory of Toulouse (LGC) and 6TMIC. This project started in April 2019 and will be completed in March 2021.

The objective of this project is to develop a new hydrogen generator (electrolyser) for small capacity decentralized energy generation applications.

The project challenge

This electrolyser must meet a precise set of specifications:

  • compactness;
  • energy efficiency;
  • reduction of the CAPEX;
  • improvement of the environmental impact;
  • user safety.

The role of 6TMIC in the ECO-H2 project

6TMIC is the leader of the project. Our expertise will be used to:

  • model the electrolyzer, design its geometry and assist the LGC in its manufacture;
  • assist LGC in the design of the electrolyser test platform by carrying out metrology studies;
  • assist in conducting tests in real conditions;
  • perform a market study to identify business opportunities.
