TAC12, the TV from the Tarragona area, has aired a TV report from the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ-CERCA) spin-off Jolt Solutions. This start-up was born about five years ago in the Prof. Julio Lloret-Fillol research group, and officially created in July 2022. And just some months later is again in the media spotlight as its state-of-the-art technology, that promotes an economy based on green hydrogen obtained through the electrolysis of water, it’s about to hit the market.
Since then, the Jolt Solutions technology has been optimized in the ICIQ laboratories. The team is ready to bring the spin-off at the next level. The R&D Jolt Director, Alberto Bucci, is clear about his statement: “At the end of 2023, Jolt Solutions will be scaling-up their technology for industry”.
As this objective is set-up, the company is already searching for a factory between Tarragona and Barcelona. Jolt will be placed there and, at least, is going to count with 20 more workers by the end of the year.
This technology will allow companies to contribute to the guidelines expressed in the European Green Deal, working towards an economy free of CO2 emissions.
The production of catalysts to improve energy efficiency and productivity of electrolysers is a key point of Jolt’s scientific and technological development. In this sense, Bucci claims that their catalysts improve the efficiency and durability of electrolysers: “Thanks to a larger surface area they can work with higher electrical currents, and due to the novel preparation methodology, they are stable under working conditions – and even harsher. This implies that Jolt is prepared to offer competitive and innovative technological solutions for industry”, Bucci concludes.
