Enduplate project two options to solve the endurance problem at the anode side of the bipolar plate have been investigated, aiming at an endurance over 40,000 hours:

1. The use of a special alloy as mid-plate material, which serves as a self-protective material in the anode environment, combined with a proper technique to ensure electrical contact between the mid-plate and the gas distribution elements on both sides.
2. Protection of the mid-plate in the current conducting region by an electrically conductive and protective coating
