Reinforced membranes for electrolyzers
As part of the research project, membranes made of polymers are being produced at the DITF that are modified and thus precisely tailored to their task. The membranes exhibit excellent electrochemical properties. They are chemically stable in an alkaline environment, i.e. under the conditions that prevail inside the electrolytic cell. The membranes should also have good long-term stability. This means that they work almost faultlessly even under continuous stress. The membranes are inexpensive to manufacture and use.
