Johnson Matthey purchases Oxis Energy battery assets: Sustainable tech firm Johnson Matthey has bought the assets & intellectual property of UK-located battery materials developer Oxis Energy, which went bust previously this year.

Oxis Energy, which is located close to Oxford, was a lithium-sulphur battery builder including assets that can be adjusted for the production of parts for green hydrogen manufacturing.

On 19th May 2021, the firm began administration.

The acquisition is forecast to considerably boost Johnson Matthey’s growing green hydrogen business, additionally extending its capability to develop, test and produce catalyst-coated membranes (CCM) as well as up-to-date materials for electrolysers.

As reported by Johnson Matthey, the facility will allow the making of 10s of thousands of CCM parts annually – sufficient to supply hundreds of megawatts of electrolyser volume.

Chief Executive Robert MacLeod stated: “We are delighted to secure this acquisition. The capability this opportunity delivers will enable our green hydrogen business to accelerate the scale up of CCM production in line with market demand. The purchase of these assets further demonstrates our commitment to developing a low carbon economy & progressing towards net-zero.”
