Membrane cell hydrogen generator and electrocatalysis for water splitting

Objective

The main aim, of the present proposal is the development of a novel type membrane cell hydrogen generator which is based on recent achievements and experience in PEM fuel cells and imposes as a target to provide both a compact electrolyser design and construction and highly electro- catalytically active electrodes, thus resulting in a rather low voltage at high current densities (1.0 A/cm2). The main impact is on the advantages of already existing theoretical bases and practical substantiation of composite electrocatalysts for both hydrogen and oxygen evolution aiming to the development of cheaper electrocatalysts substantially based on non-noble metals for catalytic improvements of classical and still broadly existing water electrolysers. This project is in accordance with all new trends in Hydrogen economy for clean, sustainable and renewable fuels.
