University of Bern has led an international research team that has succeeded in developing an electrocatalyst for hydrogen fuel cells which, in contrast to the catalysts commonly used today, does not require a carbon carrier and is therefore much more stable. The new process is industrially applicable and can be used to further optimize fuel […]

Purdue University researchers produce a fuel cell with a new method increasing the fuel cell electrode activity at least tenfold and using 90 percent less platinum. Electric vehicles running on fuel cells tout zero emissions and higher efficiency, but expensive platinum is holding them back from entering a larger market. The 2019 Toyota Mirai electric […]

There’s a new cell that runs on cheap methane fuel at temperatures comparable to automobile engines. The low operating temperature slashes materials costs. The new fuel cell may change a perception they are not particularly known for their practicality and affordability. Though the cell is in the lab, it has high potential to someday electrically […]

Georgia Institute of Technology researchers’ nanoparticle coating processing of oxygen on the cathode end of solid oxide fuel cells increases by eightfold the current best performance. Zero-emissions cars zipping into a sustainable energy future are just one dream powered by fuel cells. But fuel cell technology has been a little sluggish and fuel prohibitively pricey. […]

Northwestern University researchers have combined a high-activity cathode with a new composition of matter making a fuel cell that operates at 500ยบ C. This temperature is a commercialization sweet spot. The team of researchers led by Northwestern University professor and fuel cell pioneer Sossina Haile has created a new fuel cell offering both exceptional power […]
