General Objectives

  1. Electrodes fabrication for portable fuel cells. Electrodes will have special characteristics to accomplish with the requirements of this fuel cell type. In particular, water permeable anodes and air-breathing cathodes will be developed.
  2. Assembly of membrane-electrodes-current collectors with low internal resistance and low compression requirements. These assemblies will allow to increase the power density of portable fuel cells.
  3. Fuel cell stack, plane, light, and with high energy density. The stack will work in plane configuration to adapt the characteristics of the electrodes.
  4. Portable application with hydrogen and fuel cell. The portable fuel cell will be demonstrated and tested.
