Wilmington, Del., September 26, 2023 - DuPont (NYSE: DD), a global leader in purification and specialty-separation technologies, has taken a momentous stride into the green hydrogen market with the launch of its groundbreaking product, the DuPont™ AmberLite™ P2X110 Ion Exchange Resin. This pioneering ion exchange resin is designed to bolster the operation of electrolyzers, ushering in a new era of green hydrogen production.
Green hydrogen, produced from water through renewable energy-powered electrolysis, holds the promise of reducing global carbon emissions significantly. DuPont's AmberLite™ P2X110 Ion Exchange Resin has been meticulously crafted to cater to the unique chemistry of electrolyzer loops, thus supporting the efficient and sustainable production of green hydrogen.
Electrolysis, the process of electrically splitting water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen gas, is pivotal in the green hydrogen production process. High-purity water is a crucial feedstock for this process, and DuPont's multi-tech portfolio, including ultrafiltration, ion exchange, biofouling prevention, reverse osmosis, and electrodeionization solutions, facilitates the creation of the high-purity water required for electrolyzers.
Verónica Garcia Molina, Global Market Leader, Industrial Water & Energy at DuPont Water Solutions, expressed her excitement about this milestone, stating, "The launch of our AmberLite™ P2X110 Ion Exchange Resin is an exciting first step into the Green Hydrogen market."
The AmberLite™ P2X110 Ion Exchange Resin has been meticulously engineered to withstand the thermal and chemical challenges presented in electrolyzers. Its unique composition offers durable and reliable water quality, effectively preventing contaminant buildup within the electrolyzer loop. Notably, this ion exchange resin surpasses industry generic resins with its improved removal capacity, thus offering a distinct and more efficient solution for electrolyzers while significantly extending their service life.
With its extensive water technologies, DuPont purifies more than 50 million gallons of water per minute across the globe. The company's expertise enables water reuse, recycling, desalination, and the safe access to both ground and surface water. DuPont provides comprehensive solutions to address various water and sustainability challenges faced by industrial water users and water treatment municipalities. Their broad portfolio includes membranes, resins, and systems, encompassing reverse osmosis (RO) membranes, ion exchange resins (IEX), ultrafiltration (UF), electrodeionization (EDI), nanofiltration (NF), membrane bioreactor systems (MBR), membrane aerated biofilm reactors (MABR), and closed-circuit reverse osmosis (CCRO) systems.
DuPont's commitment to supporting electrification and decarbonization trends is highlighted by the introduction of the AmberLite™ P2X110 Ion Exchange Resin. Alan Chan, Global Vice President and General Manager of DuPont Water Solutions, emphasized the significance of this advancement, stating, "The pursuit of new sources of clean energy is critical, with green hydrogen well positioned to substantially reduce global carbon emissions. At DuPont Water Solutions, we are very excited to introduce our AmberLite™ P2X110 Ion Exchange Resin in support of these trends toward electrification and decarbonization."
As the world seeks cleaner and more sustainable energy solutions, DuPont's innovative ion exchange resin promises to play a vital role in the transition to a greener future.
