SGL Group and HYUNDAI MOTOR GROUP Expand Cooperation in Fuel-Cell Components
Dr Tilo Hauke, Head of Central Innovation at SGL Group: “We are excited to extend our partnership with HYUNDAi – our years of developmental work is now paying off. For us, this is also a major step in shaping the key technology topics of our time, including mobility and new energies.”
The fuel cell is one of the most environmentally friendly future technologies in the field of energy technology. The only waste product following the reaction is water, H2O, which can be discharged in the form of steam. After leading the way with its iX35 fuel-call car in 2012, now HYUNDAI has optimised its hydrogen-powered drive with its NEXO model, a zero-emissions vehicle. The official launch of the serial production was in March of this year.
Last year, SGL Group increased its production capacities at its Meitingen location in Germany by commissioning another sintering furnace. To continue playing a key role in the research and development of fuel cells, SGL Group is also an active development partner in the EU-funded INSPIRE project.
