MANN+HUMMEL, the global filtration expert, has joined the Hydrogen Council. As the first CEO-led global initiative of its kind, the Hydrogen Council was founded in 2017 at the World Economic Forum in Davos. More than 80 energy, transportation and industrial companies are currently members. Joining forces with government policymakers, international authorities and the public, the council aims to establish hydrogen as a solution to facilitate the exit from fossil fuels and nuclear power, and to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.

“We believe hydrogen plays a crucial role in limiting CO2 emissions. As a member of the Hydrogen Council, we are delighted to be sharing our innovations centred on protecting fuel cells and jointly invigorating the global debate,” says Kurk Wilks, President and CEO at MANN+HUMMEL.

The filtration expert draws on many years’ experience engineering cost-optimised system solutions to extend the life and durability of fuel cells. “Systems have to be durable, reliable and cost-effective for fuel cell technology to be widely accepted on the market. We at MANN+HUMMEL have developed an innovative air duct system for the cathode path to protect sensitive components and ensure the fuel cell has a highly efficient supply of clean air,” says Dr Michael Harenbrock, Principal Expert Electric Mobility.
