About Kyros Hydrogen Solutions GmbH

On-site, on demand hydrogen to fuel the future

Firmly rooted in engineering, as well as production

At Kyros Hydrogen Solutions GmbH, we offer full service, customizable hydrogen generation systems for applications spanning all forms of mobility and industry. Specializing in Proton Exchange Membrane technology, Kyros Hydrogen Solutions GmbH enables green hydrogen generation for trains, cars, trucks, and even manufacturing.

Founded in 1991 as a mechanical engineering firm, Kyros Hydrogen Solutions GmbH (formerly Kumatec) began developing hydrogen technologies nearly two decades later in 2009. Since then, our team of engineers has developed a three-part hydrogen system to expand the possibilities of what modern fuel can be. After many successful research ventures and high-profile awards, Kumatec entered a joint venture with Kyocera-AVX in 2018. With the backing of an electronics industry leader, Kyros Hydrogen Solutions GmbH has the resources to expand the hydrogen market, greatly influencing the future of fuel.​

Greek for “Cyrus,” our company name originated from the character Cyrus Smith in Jules Verne’s 1874 novel The Mysterious Island, who states:

“…I believe that water will one day be employed as fuel, that hydrogen and oxygen which constitute it, used singly or together, will furnish an inexhaustible source of heat and light… …Water will be the coal of the future.”
