Exploration of new catalyst materials for hydrogen/air fed proton exchange membrane fuel cells

Funding: 2007: $110,000
2008: $100,000
2009: $90,000

Project Member(s): Wang, G.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Linkage Projects)

Start year: 2007

Summary: Fuel cell technology is the most critical technology for the hydrogen economy. Hydrogen/air fed fuel cells can provide pollution-free power sources for vehicles and distributed power generation. A breakthrough in fuel cell technology using hydrogen as fuel will supply us with clean and sustainable energy sources, dramatically improve our environment, and maintain national energy security. The success of fuel cell technology will also significantly reduce our dependence on oil. This research project is expected to establish local expertise, and scientific and industrial know-how on fuel-cell technology.
