|Materials for Fuel Cell Technology
Fuel cells are considered the ultimate power provider, with the capability of clean, quiet, and highly efficient power generation. The field has been hotly pursued in the last decade, and a number of major roadblocks in the technology have been overcome. Advances continue at a rapid pace and the technology stands at the cusp of a commercial breakthrough. This newsletter targets recent developments focusing on fuel cell components with particular emphasis on proton exchange membranes, and hydrogen storage and production systems. Other types of fuel cells are also discussed. Recent important announcements concerning new hydrogen storage solutions are presented and devices available on the market or close to being commercialized are surveyed. Finally, Baverstam also takes a look at the area of alternate fuel such as organic materials, household and industrial wastes and coal.
