Objective

The industrial objective of the project is to use the developed and optimised fuel cell technology for the realisation of a 10 kW PEMFC stack designed and manufactured with a special attention on the cost reduction and working at temperature around 120-130°C with hydrogen containing up to 200 pip CO. Particular attention will be paid to reduction of the weight and the volume occupancy. The Pelf's obtained will be tested to check their capacity for generation of the electric energy. The potential and current will be measured in a membrane electrode assembly and correlated with the heat and water balance of the system. The optimum conditions of the PEMFCs manufacturing will be established during the project and will be completely orientated to the cost reduction and the industrialisation capacities thank to the experience of car manufacturers.
