Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche

Organisation Introduction

Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (National Council of Research-Italy), is a public research organization; its duties are to carry out, promote, spread and transfer research activities in the main sectors of knowledge growth and use this research for the scientific, technological, economic and social development of the Country. CNR is composed of 7 main departments covering different fields. The total number of CNR employees amounts to about 8000. The Institute for Advanced Energy Technologies (CNR-ITAE) is located in Messina (Italy). CNR-ITAE belongs to Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, in particular to the Department: Engineering, ICT, energy and Transportation. The institute has two locations covering about 7000 m2, divided into laboratories, offices, conference rooms, library etc.The research activity of CNR-ITAE is based on a mixture of basic and applied research, carried out through a multidisciplinary approach. CNR-ITAE is focused on innovating electrochemical energy conversion technologies through up-to-date knowledge in materials science, micro- and nano-technologies, polymer science, and system engineering.


One of the main activities of CNR is involved on development of components and prototypes for AEM and PEM electrolysis. The REDHY project fits our mission  because deals with a new technology for green hydrogen generation.

What in REDHy?

The CNR activities in the project include the development of non-CRM heterogeneous catalysts/electrocatalysts that operate in specific catalytic-bed reactors as catalytic enhancers to regenerate the base redox species while producing oxygen and hydrogen gases from water and also single cell REDHy prototype development and validation.
