Collaborating for clean hydrogen production
Genvia, a clean hydrogen production technology venture, aims to achieve the highest system efficiency using significantly less electricity per kilogram of hydrogen produced than is possible with current technologies. The Genvia technology is the first of its kind with the flexibility to switch between electrolysis and fuel cell functions.
The new venture will accelerate the development and first industrial deployment of the CEA high-temperature reversible solid oxide electrolyzer technology—the most efficient and cost-effective technology for clean hydrogen production.
Leveraging Schlumberger technology industrialization experience, the first Genvia manufacturing pilot line will be established at a Schlumberger manufacturing facility in Béziers, France in 2021. Genvia will also set up a Technology Center colocated with the CEA in Grenoble, France to fast-track industrialization and the maturing of the technology.
