Harvard researchers have found a way to harness the quantum behavior of fuel cells to make them even more robust and efficient. The discovery provided a new observation of a new type of phase transition in an oxide material. Solid oxide fuel cells, which rely on low- cost ceramic materials, are among the most efficient […]

University of Delaware researchers are reporting a breakthrough that promises to bring down the cost of hydrogen fuel cells by replacing expensive platinum catalysts with cheaper ones made from metals like nickel. The transport sector – which includes passenger cars, trucks, buses, and rail, marine, and air transport – accounts for more than 20% of […]

The VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd is developing a new-generation, long-life fuel cell system offering efficiency higher than that of competing technologies. Working with Convion Ltd and Elcogen Ltd in the INNO-SOFC project, the effort is planned to result in new, energy-efficient and commercially viable fuel cells. The Finns look like they mean […]

Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) researchers have built a palladium- magnesium oxide core-shell combination catalyst for fuel cells. The palladium nanoparticle cores are not sintered together and maintain spaces between each another because of the magnesium oxide shells. The development maximizes their ability to react with chemicals. The OIST team offers that fuel […]

Colorado School of Mines researchers report to have succeeded in developing affordable and efficient ceramic fuel cells that could be used to power homes from five years worth of work. The research would enable more efficient use of natural gas for power generation through the use of fuel cells that convert the chemical energy of […]
