New catalyst could help make fuel cells affordable

Fuel Cells - New Research

Researchers develop new catalyst that uses no platinum Researchers from Sandia National Laboratories and the University of California are working to drive down the cost of hydrogen fuel cells. These researchers have developed a new catalyst that could eventually replace the platinum catalysts that fuel cells typically use. The new catalyst is comprised of a compound that takes the form of a “rippled leaf.” Researchers have shown that the new compound has three times as many catalytic contact points as typical catalysts. Research team developed catalyst using natural processes Researchers…

Fuel cells are helping change the transportation space

Fuel Cells - Time for Change

Automakers are becoming more focused on fuel cells The landscape of the transportation world is beginning to shift. More automakers are beginning to develop vehicles that produce no emissions. These companies are feeling pressure from governments, which are seeking to cut emissions by a significant degree. Automakers are also working to accommodate the growing demand from consumers for clean vehicles. Many have turned to batteries to power a new generation of cars, but some have become focused on hydrogen fuel cells. Toyota has major plans for its fuel cell vehicles…
