Chemours explores capacity investments to advance support of the H2 economy

The Chemours Company and Advanced Performance Materials announced it is investigating capacity investments to support its growing H2 economy business. This increased capacity in ionomers would support the demand growth within water electrolysis and fuel cell technology.

The company is considering potential locations in the U.S. and Europe, with an eye to local community engagement and collaboration. Chemours continues to set the standard in responsible manufacturing and this capacity will help the company advance their goal to continue shifting the portfolio to sustainable offerings that make a specific contribution to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).

“The hydrogen economy demand is growing exponentially, and our products are truly at its core,” said Denise Dignam, President of Advanced Performance Materials at Chemours. “To meet this demand requires private/public partnerships with the right partners—partners that will be an asset to the community—responsible. And we believe Chemours is who communities, regions, and countries should look to in order to deliver capacity necessary to achieve clean energy while maintaining a focus on protecting human health and the environment.”

The capacity investment will be focused on ionomers that support the Nafion platform, which is known for unparalleled performance and durability. Nafion ion exchange membranes provide a clean energy solution through water electrolysis creating green H2 from renewable power. Fuel cells—another Nafion membrane application—convert H2 to electricity, an alternative to carbon-based energy sources.
