With the vision of “producing THE leading green hydrogen technology for the world” , Caplyzer AB (CAB) is developing a technology that can produce green hydrogen at a significantly lower cost than current electrolysers. The innovative technology is based on a smart and sustainable design that uses fewer components, cheaper materials and therefore totals a truly competitive and dynamic hydrogen-producing unit.

Key enablers include the membrane free technology that caters for easy maintenance whilst producing at maximum energy efficiency and the possibility to use cheaper electrode materials still keeping up with the performance.

The patent pending technology was spun out of KTH after significant research in the field which gives a solid credibility towards the technology. Currently, our fundamental technology, as well as our MVP, is in place and now it is all about building a business. The team has spun out technologies previously and will be a solid complement to the person we are looking for who is expected to lead the business development and market deployment of this technology.

What have we done so far?

Over the past years:

The founders have built several versions of the hydrogen cells and gained confidence in the basic technology that was also validated by a third party evaluation (Research Institute of Sweden). The latest version has been built to prove the technology from an industrial perspective proving that it has the potential to easily scale by modularity. Initial contacts have been made with industry to probe interest which has been confirmed. A minor investment round has been undertaken with KTH Holding AB as investor, who will also support in further development of the company. Some funding applications have also been submitted by the company awaiting response from the funding bodies.

What’s our next challenge?

We are now ramping up and accelerating our commercialisation efforts, where we need a business savvy generalist and a potential co-founder. We are aiming to scale fast as green hydrogen is in high demand and we believe we are technically positioned to be a top choice for many producers. The business now has to be packaged in all aspects to launch our plans. Opportunities are plenty but so are the challenges of building a company from scratch.
