NedStack & Akzo Nobel
In 1997 AkzoNobel Research started the development of its PEM fuel cell technology. AkzoNobel is a Netherlands-based, multi-national manufacturing corporation active in healthcare products, coatings and chemicals. This meant we were off to a flying start: all necessary materials and technology (like membranes, fluor polymers, composites, catalysts and non-wovens) were available within the company.
The PEM fuel cells were developed to use at some of AkzoNobel’s production sites. Almost ten years later, seven development engineers got the opportunity to take over AkzoNobel’s PEM activities. They recognized the broader potential of PEM fuel cells as a sustainable source of power.
Nedstack was founded in November of 1998. All of AkzoNobel’s fuel cell know-how was transferred to Nedstack.
