Enapter – game-changing green hydrogen generating technology
Enapter, the hydrogen technology specialist with origin in Thailand, is currently building a mass production facility for highly efficient hydrogen generators in Saerbeck. The vision: Enapter wants to reduce costs to position hydrogen competitively in the market in order to replace fossil fuels with green hydrogen. For this purpose, the company invests 100 million euros in its “Enapter Campus”, where in future modular systems for the production of green hydrogen will be manufactured and refined using a special anion exchange membrane technology. More than 10,000 electrolyzer units per year are to be produced there from 2023. Not only has Enapter been awarded with the NRW.Global Business AWARD for this investment, but recently received the renowned Earthshot Prize, established by HRH Prince William and the Royal Foundation, in the category “Fix our Climate”.
