Accelerating the hydrogen economy


Based in Lund, Sweden, Catator is a world-leading technology development and integration partner for the commercialization of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. Our mission is to accelerate the transition to a green hydrogen economy by creating the world’s most compact, efficient and versatile solutions for hydrogen production, conversion and utilization.

Founded in 1990 by Tihamer Hargitai and Fredrik Silversand, both PhDs in chemical engineering and catalysis from Lund Institute of Engineering, Catator has been at the forefront of hydrogen catalysis for more than 30 years.

Thanks in part to a powerful range of patented catalytic technologies, the Catator team has played a central role in developing breakthrough designs for hydrogen reactors, reformers, burners and boilers that have revolutionized the economics of hydrogen catalysis.

The result is a unique range of catalyst compositions and geometries for hydrogen chemistry, cutting-edge process solutions for the hydrogen industry as well as in-house catalyst production and catalyst coating services to support the future demands of a growing range of customers worldwide.

And now, the most exciting part of the journey has begun, with the rapid commercialization and build-out of tomorrow’s green hydrogen infrastructure.

Together with industry leaders and a growing list of partners in the hydrogen energy sector, Catator continues to create breakthrough technology platforms that mobilize the power of catalysis and accelerate the transition to tomorrow’s hydrogen economy.

Our Vision: A green hydrogen economy

At Catator, we envision a future where the world is powered by renewable green energy and where hydrogen is used as a clean, sustainable, and versatile energy source to store and distribute energy when the sun is not shining, and the wind is not blowing.

Our Mission: Accelerate the transition

Our mission is to accelerate the transition to a green hydrogen economy through the world’s most compact, efficient, and versatile catalytic solutions for hydrogen production and utilization. We are committed to developing and providing innovative solutions that make hydrogen a practical and accessible energy source. Through our work, we aim to drive the adoption of hydrogen technologies, reduce our global carbon footprint, and pave the way for a sustainable future.
