Innovating the Future of hydrogen compressors
Cyrus aspires to become the leader in providing affordable and accessible hydrogen fuel for direct use
“The inauguration of this HRS is a huge step towards the development of a hydrogen market in Greece. The innovative compression system used inside this HRS highlights the importance of spin-off companies and their contribution to the further development of hydrogen technologies."
Deputy Minister of Research & Innovation
"The first hydrogen refueling station is a glimpse of the future and a step towards the green transition. ... The hydrogen station incorporates an innovative compression technology developed by CYRUS SA, a spin-off company of NCSR DEMOKRITOS"
“Advent Technologies is making its first investment in Greece in the field of hydrogen. ADVENT together with Uni-fund and other private investors invest over 1 million euros in Cyrus ...”
HYDROGEN METAL HYDRIDE COMPRESSORS OFFER A WIDE RANGE OF ADVANTAGES
Transport applications are responsible for almost 25% of Greenhouse Gases Emissions in Europe. Hydrogen is the most efficient clean energy carrier in this sector. To support this shift towards cleaner energy, new infrastructures of Hydrogen Refueling Stations (HRS) are already underway. Hydrogen compressors are a key element of these stations, accounting for ca. 50% of their capital costs and over 60% of their O&M costs.
CYRUS S.A. has developed a novel Metal Hydride Compressor that can compress Hydrogen up to more than 200 bar and a working temperature of 85 °C making it suitable for scale-up, leveraging the easily accessible and relatively cheaper low grade heat.
With Exceptional Quality
CYRUS compressors can be driven only by RES (Solar Thermal) or Industrial Waste Heat.
No Critical Raw Materials are present
ZERO NOISE LEVELS
Provides the ability to install HRS including CYRUS solution in residential areas
