EleMax® Series

Catalysts for Storage of Hydrogen from Renewable Sources via Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers (LOHC)

Edition Date :
August 12, 2019
EleMax® catalysts are designed for storing hydrogen from renewable energy sources, such as wind or hydro power. They are used in an innovative technique developed by Clariant’s partner, Hydrogenious Technologies, to transport hydrogen by chemically binding the molecules to Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers (LOHC). 

In the method, hydrogenation of the liquid organic hydrocarbon dibenzyltoluene via EleMax H “stores” hydrogen, while its dehydrogenation with EleMax D “releases” hydrogen on demand. This provides the handling flexibility required for widespread roll-out of hydrogen production from renewable power sources (Power-to-Gas, Power-to-X).
Benefits
  • High activity
  • Exceptional selectivity for loading and unbinding hydrogen 
  • Optimizes the life-cycle and efficiency of the LOHC
Product compositionPlatinum and palladium on aluminum-oxide carrier
Size2-4 mm (EleMax D); 1.8 mm (EleMax H)
