Our story

Hydrogen Mem-Tech was founded in 2017 in Norway’s tech capital, Trondheim, following years of research and development on palladium membranes in Reinertsen.

We are now growing fast, with investors including AP Ventures, Saudi Aramco Energy Ventures, Shell Ventures, Yara Growth Ventures, and SINTEF Venture V.

Our state-of-the-art commercial production facility was completed in 2023. Today, we design and produce our compact and cost-effective palladium membrane technology for businesses globally, enabling our clients to extract clean hydrogen from natural and biogases.
