Department of Energy Funds Development of Next-Generation PEM Fuel Cell Cathode Materials at pH Matter

Columbus, Ohio, June 8, 2018 — pH Matter announced today that it has been awarded over $1 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for the continued development of its COR-Cat™ high-activity catalyst materials for proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells. A key to the cost and lifetime of PEM fuel cells is the performance of materials in the cathode, particularly the catalyst layer. pH Matter’s new catalyst material retains activity following lifetime durability demonstrations of 30,000 cycles, and is suitable for use in fuel cell applications…

Researchers develop new catalyst material for fuel cells

Hydrogen Fuel Research

IBN scientists create catalyst material that may lead to superior fuel cells Researchers from the Singapore’s Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) have developed a new catalyst material that could be used in the production of more efficient and cost effective fuel cells. The material is believed to be a key component in the manufacture of superior fuel cells. These fuel cells may be able to produce electricity more efficiently and at higher quantities than conventional models. They may also be more affordable than traditional counterparts because of their reduced…
