Membrane Electrode Assembly

Membrane Electrode Assembly

Objectives

To model, develop, produce, test, validate and manufacture Membrane Electrode Assemblies (MEAs) for High Temperature (HT) PEM Fuel Cell Stacks for Combined Heat and Power (CHP) and Fuel Cell Vehicle (FCV) applications.

Highlights

Development of novel HT-MEAs using new component materials
HT-MEA performance comparable to commercial ones
Pilot scale HT-MEA manufacturing line for roll-to-roll processing
Pilot scale HT-MEA manufacturing line for batch processing
