MONTREAL, 2 May 2018 -- Xebec Adsorption Inc. (Xebec) is pleased to announce a Strategic Cooperation Agreement with Zhangjiagang Furui Hydrogen Power Equipment Co. Ltd (“Furui HP”) in Jiangsu Province, China. Through a cooperative exchange, Furui HP will deploy Xebec’s Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) to purify hydrogen and enable their renewable hydrogen energy supply chain. They will also identify other market opportunities within China, collaborating with Xebec Shanghai on technical and commercial proposals.
Through complementary expertise, Furui HP and Xebec will work together over the next three years to help accelerate the development of hydrogen energy solutions in China, particularly as it relates to liquid hydrogen production and hydrogen mobility with fuel cell vehicles. Furui HP already provides solutions for the hydrogen economy, including upstream hydrogen generation, midstream transportation and storage, and downstream distribution and terminal equipment like hydrogen refueling stations and hydrogen dispensers.
Xebec has diverse experience in the global clean energy space, designing and manufacturing gas purification products and renewable energy technology solutions for industrial use, transportation, electrical grids and the public sector, and sees itself as a facilitator of the global energy transition. Furui HP was searching for this expertise and believes this collaboration is a perfect fit for their vision moving forward.
Dr. Prabhu Rao, Chief Operating Officer of Xebec, commented that “there is a global effort to introduce zero emission fuel cell electric vehicles and the need for cost-effective renewable hydrogen fuel and fueling infrastructure is a great opportunity. Xebec is proud to partner with a strong company like Furui HP whose experience in the hydrogen field, coupled with our gas purification technology, will allow both companies to gain market share in the rapidly developing China market.”
