Material development 7.7.2016

Higher performance with electrolysis technology

The project LastEISy materials for catalysts and membranes, and so-called interconnectors to be interactively improved. Interconnectors connecting the anode and cathode of the fuel cell electrically and thermally and distribute the fuel gas and air in the system. Currently, researchers rely on a test stand , the test new catalysts and membranes. Thereafter, the structure and various materials are to be investigated ex situ. ... more

Water electrolysis 4.7.2016

Hydrogen drying using cost-efficient membranes

Cost-efficient and highly selective membranes might have the potential to separate the water effectively with low parasitic energy demand. The main objective was to coat a stable polymer carrier structure, which is highly permeable for hydrogen, with an ultra thin metallic layer in a range of several nano meter thickness. The resulting composite membranes should be tight for water but highly permeable for hydrogen. ... more
