PGMs in hydrogen production

The development of the hydrogen economy is a part of this green energy transition. Platinum Group Metals (PGM) can play key roles in the production and use of green hydrogen from renewable energy; electrolyser and fuel cell technologies are scaling up fast. Platinum, ruthenium and iridium are mission-critical precious metals to combat climate change. Companies active in the hydrogen economy will need to understand the long-term PGM supply dynamics, whilst companies following the PGM markets will need to understand the future opportunities presented in the hydrogen value chain.

The SFA team is here to support your climate change journey with bespoke green hydrogen and hydrogen fuel cell intelligence for the circular economy.
