Eifer and Insplorion have started collaboration where Eifer also bought Insplorion X1 instrument to advance their research in hydrogen-related fields.
The order value is around US$ 58k after a collaboration agreement discount has been applied. The Insplorion X1 instrument was developed to study gas adsorption/absorption processes or phase transitions in thin polymer films and materials relevant to catalysis in situ and real-time from ambient up to 600C.
Eifer has identified Insplorion’s NPS technology as a competitive tool in advancing the development of instruments for the hydrogen infrastructure, and both organisations now agreed to collaborate to increase the knowledge transfer.
Patrik Dahlqvist, CEO at Insplorion, said, “Having Eifer as our customer and collaboration partner with the goal to further enhance our NPS technology within the hydrogen sensing field is of course an advancement for us. It once again shows that the NPS platform is strong, not only as a sensor, but also as a research tool when developing sensors.”
Europäisches Institut für Energieforschung (Eifer) is an independent French-German research institute that aims to bridge the gap between science and industry with innovative energy solutions. It focuses on hydrogen as an energy carrier with R&D projects over the entire value chain, from production via distribution to usage.
