CAMBRIDGE, MA, USA – Advent Technologies, a leading innovator in electrochemistry materials and components, will join thousands of innovators in the Hannover Messe Exhibition from April 1 to April 5.
Advent is a leader in the development of membranes and electrodes for high-temperature PEM fuel cells that work with methanol and natural gas. The company will be seeking opportunities with innovators in the fields of automotive, marine, aviation, drone, combined heat & power, APU and other markets portable and stationary power markets where its components provide a significant advantage.
Advent will be represented by Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Vasilis Gregoriou and R&D Manager, Dr. Nora Gourdoupi.
About Advent Technologies
ADVENT develops materials and components for transportation, energy, defense, and sensor applications. Advent materials enable electrochemical cells to work with multiple fuels (nat. gas, methanol), rather than high-purity hydrogen and provide significant advantages for electrification and GHG reduction worldwide. A commercial truck with Advent materials refills in minutes, needs half the Li-ion battery infrastructure, has longer range and lower cost. Benefits in range, refill, cost, and clean operation apply to the APU and Portable Power (drones, defense, security) markets.
The Company was founded by world-renowned scientists with many years of industry experience. It is headquartered in Cambridge, MA with production and R&D facilities in Europe. Advent has a wide and international portfolio of patents and proven experience in scaling manufacturing.
Advent has developed, tested, patented and released to multiple customers superior materials (membranes, electrodes, catalysts) that are the heart of the next generation of electrochemical cells. Unlike the competition, Advent’s MEAs run at high temperature. This allows electrochemical cells to work with liquid fuels (methanol), biogas, aviation fuel, natural gas, not only hydrogen. Contaminants such as carbon monoxide (CO), which at a few parts per million (ppm) will kill conventional systems, can be as high as several percent (%) delivered to an Advent membrane. Because of these differences systems built with Advent inside have greater flexibility of end-user applications, simpler design, and lower cost of manufacturing.
