Researchers develop new catalyst for fuel cell vehicles

Fuel Cell Vehicles - Research

New catalyst could help fuel cell vehicles become more efficient Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a new multifunctional catalyst for fuel cell vehicles. The research team has noted that the need for clean vehicles has been growing for some time. The technology needed to power such vehicles has been advancing at a relatively slow rate, however. To help solve this problem, the research team has developed a “turbocharged” catalyst that can easily convert chemical fuel into electrical power in a highly efficient manner. Catalyst is eight…
