The long-term strategic partnership between Plug Power and Johnson Matthey will assist Plug to strengthen its supply chain and meet the growing demand for fuel cells and electrolyzers. Both the parties also have plans to co-invest and develop the world’s largest CCM manufacturing facility.
New York/USA – Plug Power and Johnson Matthey (JM) recently announced a long-term strategic partnership to accelerate the green hydrogen economy. JM will become an important strategic supplier of MEA components, providing a substantial portion of Plug’s demand for catalysts, membranes, and catalyst coated membranes (CCM). Importantly, JM brings security of supply of precious metals, and unique recycling capabilities.
This strategic partnership between Plug and JM will support Plug in delivering its targeted revenue of 5 billion dollars and 20 billion dollars by 2026 and 2030 respectively. To help achieve these targets, Plug and JM will co-invest in what is expected to be the largest (5 GW scaling to 10 GW over time) CCM manufacturing facility in the world. The facility will be built in the United States and likely begin production in 2025. Plug and JM will also continue to leverage government incentives from the Inflation Reduction Act in the US and RE Power EU in Europe to push for exponential growth across the hydrogen industry.
