Fuel Cells with Low Platinum Content

The goal of the PaC-NG project is basic development of advanced thin-film nanocatalysts with low precious metal content and of their corrosion-resistant supports for stacks of hydrogen fuel cells with polymer membranes. At the same time, research on the specifics of application to large electrodes will be carried out as a preparation for future up-scaling of the technologies for stacks with active surfaces larger than 200 cm2 and powers of up to 5 kW, applicable in small and medium-sized stationary and mobile power sources.
