IMproved lifetiMe stacks fOR heavy duty Trucks through ultrA-durabLe components

Project description

Durable components for heavy-duty trucks

The membrane electrode assembly (MEA) is the core of proton-exchange membrane fuel cells used in several applications, mainly in transport. The EU-funded IMMORTAL project will develop extraordinary durable and high-power-density MEAs, which will be transferable to other fields, and improve the competitiveness of Europe’s fuel truck sector. The project relies on fuel cell degradation pathways relevant to heavy-duty truck operation and developing lifetime prediction models from extensive real-life stack operation, accelerated stress test and load profile cycles on short stacks. IMMORTAL will develop new materials concepts for world-leading components, realise the potential of these components in MEAs and develop load profile tests for heavy-duty MEA performance.
