Advanced Materials for PEM-based Fuel Cell Systems
Funded by The National Science Foundation Partnerships for Innovations Program
Principal Investigator: James E. McGrath
ABSTRACT: Fuel cells have been in existence for over one hundred years, but they are not economical or reliable enough for commercialization. Once fuel cells become economically competitive, the potential commercialization is enormous. This partnership focuses on fuel cell innovations through systems engineering analysis of membrane electrode assembly of fuel cell stacks; predictive modeling of materials durability; synthesis and characterization of new polymers for electrodes; summer intern education programs; modeling and reliability testing; scale-up from materials, models, and processing to prototype; technology transfer to industrial partners; and commercialization of innovations.
