The Untapped Power of Fuel Cells

By | News, Research News | No Comments February 12, 2019

In recent years, renewable energy has been on the rise in the United States. Still, the overwhelming majority of our energy comes from fossil fuels. And, renewable energy needs to overcome significant limitations and obstacles to contribute a greater share of our overall energy solution. Hydrogen fuel cells may be the key to our sustainable energy future.

Improved Membranes for Platinum-Free Fuel Cells

By | News, Research News | No Comments February 4, 2019

Jülich – Scientists from Jülich together with colleagues from Japan have discovered how fuel cell membranes can be improved without the use of rare and expensive precious metals such as platinum. The anion-exchange membranes studied are a key component of certain polymer electrolyte fuel cells and serve to transfer charged particles (anions) while at the same time retaining gases such as oxygen or hydrogen.

CHEREAU has been awarded the Prix des Transport des Terres Générales 2019 Hydrogen Trophies.

This prize was an opportunity for CHEREAU to discover the collaborative project ROAD, the first hydrogen refrigerated semi-trailer. ROAD is a new generation of refrigeration bodies that are more efficient and more environmentally friendly, thanks to various new technologies.

Researchers Fine Tune New Approach to Improve Catalysts for Hydrogen Evolution Reaction

By | News, Research News | No Comments January 25, 2019

An international collaboration between researchers in Spain and Scotland has resulted in a new approach to improve the catalysts needed to carry out the Hydrogen Evolution Reaction (HER). The reaction, in which water is transformed into hydrogen and oxygen, is a promising alternative to humanity’s dependency on fossil fuels to satisfy energy requirements.
