PEM Electrolyzer : How it works

PEM Electrolysis

Proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolysis is an innovative and efficient method for hydrogen production. As the demand for sustainable and renewable energy sources grows, PEM electrolysis has emerged as a promising technology for clean hydrogen generation. In this article, we will delve into the definition, key components, and working principles of PEM electrolysis.

PEM Hydrogen Generator Electrochemical Reactions

1.Water are brought to the bipolar plates and flow into the channels of the plate
2.At contact with proton exchange membrane of the electrodes,the water is split into protons H+ and O2-
3.The proton O2- splits off two electrons e,which combine with another to form oxygen.
4.The electrons travel through the circuit to the cathode.H+ passes through the proton membrane to the cathode.
5.Protons H+ combine with electrons at the cathode to form dihydrogen.
6.Oxygen flows from the anode.Hydrogen flows from the cathode.
