Project ELHYPORT is an integral approach for the development and use of hydrogen fuel cells in real applications, tackling new materials, electrocatalysis, components, devices, and systems. The specific objectives are:

  • Porous layers for better transport of water and gases in gas diffusion electrodes.
  • Integrated collector-gas diffusion electrode structures.
  • New fuel cell designs with increased portability.
  • Development of an intelligent electronics as Energy Management System.
  • Integration of hydrogen fuel cells in low power and portable applications.
  • Life cycle sustainability assessment (LCSA) of the hydrogen fuel cell system.
