Cooperation between Johnson Matthey, Diffusion Alloys aims to boost supply chain for low carbon hydrogen

Cooperation between Johnson Matthey, Diffusion Alloys aims

Johnson Matthey (JM), a global leader in sustainable technologies, and Diffusion Alloys, a specialist diffusion coatings producer, have partnered to scale-up production and meet the growing demand for low carbon hydrogen, which is used to cut global carbon emissions.  JM and Diffusion Alloys will collaborate to share their expertise and provide a stable supply chain for the coated components used in JM’s low carbon (blue) hydrogen product.

JM’s LCH technology enables the production of hydrogen with up to 99% CO₂ capture. The technology has been chosen for several significant projects around the world including H2H Saltend with Linde and Equinor, a 600-megawatt low carbon hydrogen production plant in the Humber, UK; HyNet, a leading UK industrial decarbonisation project; and a large-scale low carbon hydrogen project in North America.

Diffusion Alloys Managing Director, Lisa Randall, welcomed the partnership praising Johnson Matthey with “foresight in its ambitions in low carbon hydrogen” and a partnership agreement “that will support the translation of the significant increase in demand for low carbon hydrogen into successful deployment.”

Dr Phil Ingram, Business Development Director for JM agreed, adding that, “Diffusion Alloys is the best in the world at what they do. Through this partnership we will combine efforts to meet increasing demand for low carbon hydrogen technologies. This is another important step along our journey to enabling a net zero future through world class technology.”
