How PEMFC will power the future of transport
The global automotive fuel cell market is growing. Thanks to their high energy conversion efficiency, proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) are considered a promising technology for the transport industry. But the technology requires further improvement concerning performance, cost and durability. The EU-funded FURTHER-FC project will investigate the technology’s performance restrictions observed in the current membrane electrode assembly (MEA) that emerge from the conjunction of electrochemical and transport issues in the cathode catalyst layer (CCL). It will apply an innovative and inclusive method based on intensive fundamental description combined with advanced modelling. The project will propose and validate the performance and durability of new ionomer and electrode structures.
