Hydrogen: The Future of Sustainable and Secure Energy

Challenges to Adoption

High production costs of hydrogen, a lack of supporting infrastructure and technological limitations are hindering the mass adoption of hydrogen today.

Flexible, Long Lasting

Hydrogen is a versatile energy carrier that can be used in various applications. It is also effective for long duration energy storage without degradation.

High Energy Density

Hydrogen has the highest energy content per unit of mass of any fuel , which makes it the superior energy carrier when it comes to gravimetric energy density. This is particularly important for applications where weight and payload matters.

Clean, Zero-emission

Hydrogen is a clean energy vector that does not produce greenhouse gases or pollutants when used as a fuel. Its potential for renewable production through processes such as water electrolysis make it a sustainable energy solution with minimal environmental impact.

Abundant and Secure

Hydrogen is one of earth's most abundant elements and can be produced from various sources, including water, natural gas, and biomass. Its wide availability contributes to a future of energy security and enhances energy independence.

Overcoming commercialisation barriers through Material Science

Material science is a critical key to addressing challenges related to hydrogen production, storage, transportation, and use.


Enhancing Performance

Nanomaterials can offer improved surface area, reactivity, conductivity, electrochemical, thermal and other electrochemical or mechanical properties.  

These help ensure effective system performance, such as power efficiency and form factors.


Ensuring Long Term Reliability

Ensuring product reliability across the production, storage and use of hydrogen relies on minimising component degradation and failure. 

Nanotechnology can enable higher degrees of hydrogen impermeability, anti-stress and anti-corrosion properties across harsh acidic, alkaline or high-temperature operating conditions. 


Elevating Lower
Cost Materials

Advancements on the material level can enhance the properties more abundant and affordable substrates such as stainless steel. 

Using precious-metal-free materials are critical for the long-term commercialisation of new technologies.

Filtered Cathodic Vacuum Arc (FCVA) Coating Technology
Filtered Cathodic Vacuum Arc (FCVA)

Our proprietary FCVA technology delivers the capability to deposit 100% pure and high-energy ions on a wide range of material substrates. This coating technology significantly enhances the properties (e.g. electrochemical, corrosion resistance) of the material, while filtering undesirable macro-particles that affect the coating quality and integrity. The coatings can be precisely tuned and optimised based on the application.

The coating is performed near room-temperature, ensuring a higher energy efficiency. This also allows vacuum coating techniques to be performed onto a further range of substrate materials which is conventionally challenging, such as plastics, rubber and ceramics, in addition to conventional materials such as metals.


Our FCVA technology has been in use for mass production across a range of industries such as 3C (Computer, Communication and Consumer electronics), automotive, precision engineering and printing. 

Through using foundational material technologies, Sydrogen unlocks advantages across the hydrogen value chain in the performance, durability and cost for critical fuel cell components.
