Swiss Pavilion at the 2024 Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Expo in Tokyo

28 February - 1 March 2024

Swiss Pavilion Exhibitors at the World Smart Energy Week in Tokyo

The Embassy in Switzerland in Japan and Switzerland Global Enterprise (S-GE), with support of the General Consulate of Switzerland in Osaka, Swissnex, are organizing a booth to present cutting-edge Swiss hydrogen and ammonia technology at the World Smart Energy Week/ Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Expo at Tokyo Big Sight on February 28 to March 01, 2024 (West Hall, Booth no. 6-18).

In recent years, as governments around the world have been forced to respond to climate change, hydrogen has attracted attention as an important part of the solution, and is positioned as one of the priority areas in Japan’s Green Growth Strategy.

Switzerland is an innovation hub, which brings together companies and scientists that develop know-how and new technologies in the hydrogen industry, and strives to create a green hydrogen ecosystem in the mobility sector to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. The Swiss pavilion is showcasing the innovative offerings for hydrogen/ammonia production and applications from Swiss companies and start-ups, accompanied by the presence of the Swiss industry association CleantechAlps as well as Swissnex.

Beyond Scroll, a deep-tech startup based in Lausanne, is on a mission to revolutionize compression technology and pave the way for a sustainable future. Specializing in oil-free scroll compressors that leverage our patented technology, we address the challenges of low-pressure hydrogen compression (1 to 30 bar). Our compressors are a critical component in the green hydrogen supply chain, essential for enhancing the efficiency and affordability of green hydrogen production via electrolysers. By reducing their operating pressure, our technology can decrease electrolysers' CAPEX by up to 25%. Our hermetically sealed, 100% oil-free scroll compressors are designed in a variety of sizes, tailored to meet the unique pressure and capacity requirements of each customer.

• Prospective customers: This includes EPC companies, gas TSOs, renewable energy producers, and others in need of low-pressure hydrogen compression solutions.

• Strategic partnerships in the hydrogen value chain: We are interested in collaborating with manufacturers of electrolysers (e.g., SOEC, which can only operate at low-pressure and requires compression solutions at 1 bar) and providers of mid-stream solutions involved in the transportation, distribution, and storage of hydrogen. Our goal is to leverage these partnerships to facilitate our entry into the Japanese market.

• Suppliers in Asia: We are looking for reliable suppliers of standard mechanical components and/or raw materials within the Asian market.

Bipolar plates are the most important component in a fuel cell. Since hundreds of such plates are stacked and packed into the cell, the accuracy of each plate has a large impact on the overall effi-ciency, and the cost of each plate significantly impacts the cost of the fuel cell.

We invite you to witness such a bipolar plate and the precision machined surfaces of the mold and die used to produce it.

Looking for companies involved in:
・R&D, Design and Manufacturing of Hydrogen Fuel Cell bipolar plates
・manufacturing and automobiles and components
・manufacturing and sales of high-pressure gas
・design and manufacturing of heat exchangers
・high precision machining and processing of special materials
