  • Patent number: 9752240
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an electrochemical cell (20) comprising a bipolar plate (26); an annular support next to the bipolar plate (26); a first electrode (22) separated from the bipolar plate (26) defining a first half-cell (10?) (cationic or anionic) together with the plate and the annular support. The cell also has a membrane (23) next to the first electrode (22); a second electrode (24) next to the membrane (23); and a closure element (21) defining a second half-cell (10?) (cationic or anionic depending on the nature of the second electrode) together with the second electrode (24). In the present invention the closure element (21) is housed within the annular support (25).

  • Patent number: 9376757
    Abstract: The present invention describes a diaphragm comprising SPEEK for alkaline electrolysis with a first layer having micropores and a second layer of macroporous channels which start at the contact surface between the first and the second layer then extending and forming the outer surface of the second layer, where said macroporous channels increase in section and change direction as they approach said outer surface of the second layer, and where the walls of the macrochannels are in turn macroporous. The invention also describes a production method for producing the diaphragm comprising the use of the chemically induced phase separation (CIPS) technique, and its use in alkaline electrolysis and in electrolyzers.
