Periodic Report 1 - SMALLINONE (Smart Membrane for hydrogen energy conversion: All fuel cell functionalities in One Material)

Funded under: FP7-ENERGY


This is the periodic report of SMALLINONE, a project introduces a 'Smart All in One' membrane concept. In this approach, a catalytic network is directly implanted in the thin film protonic membrane. In addition, several functionalities will be added to this material in order to confer it smart properties such as water and crossover management, tailored porosity and three-dimensional (3D) conformability.

The report provides a summary of the context and project objectives, the work performed, the results achieved and intentions for use and impact. Expected result of the SMALLINONE project is a reduction of the material and the fabrication costs. In addition, the project explores new fabrication methods by using vacuum technologies to build fuel cells. These techniques can be useful for large scale production like roll to roll and they can facilitate the monolithic integration of fuel cell directly for a reduction in the assembly time and costs.
