“Sunfire develops and manufactures steam electrolysers (SOEC) and high-temperature fuel cells (SOFC). Steam electrolysis splits steam into hydrogen and oxygen. It is particularly efficient and is powered by renewable electricity. The hydrogen generated can be efficiently converted into crude oil substitutes via the Sunfire Power-to-Liquid process as well as being used directly in hydrogen powered mobility or industrially. Rewarded as one of the world’s most innovative companies, Sunfire has recently joined the European Hydrogen Initiative.”
The value of Paul Wurth’s investment was not disclosed, but the company said it was part of a €25m series C funding round.
