First Hydrogen and Cambridge University to collaborate; Primorus invests in CPH2

The collaboration will contribute to the UK leading the way to decarbonisation and reaching our ambitious net-zero targets.

First Hydrogen Corp. announced that its subsidiary First Hydrogen Limited signed a Research and Collaboration Agreement for an initial 5-year period with the University of Cambridge in the UK.

The collaboration will help unlock the hydrogen economy, focusing on the automotive industry, hydrogen production, and fuel distribution industries.

The University of Cambridge team will be led by Professor Seamus Higson of the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology. The department first developed the hydrogen fuel cell, which was subsequently used in the Apollo moon missions.

The initial project which the parties will develop is an AI software learning tool to harvest user and supplier information related to hydrogen usage to better inform hydrogen business cases and help direct the significant investments into hydrogen mobility and related infrastructure.

This dynamic tool is expected to generate additional revenues and give First Hydrogen a unique data advantage to help it develop its technology and infrastructure in the hydrogen sector.
