Fuel Cells News

Hydrogen fuel cells are electrochemical devices used to convert the chemical energy of hydrogen into electrical energy, releasing heat in the process while producing water as the only by-product of the electrochemical reactions. There are several types of hydrogen fuel cells, including alkaline, proton exchange membrane (PEM), phosphoric acid, and solid oxide fuel cells. These technologies differ in numerous ways, most notably in the component materials used to support the electrochemical process. In this section you can find news items related to various aspects of fuel cell technologies.

Chinese scientists develop high-performance PEM fuel cells

Chinese scientists from Tianjin University’s School of Mechanical Engineering have developed a proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell with ultra-high volumetric power density, reported to be more than 80% higher than the performance of mainstream counterparts. Their findings have been published in the Joule journal.
