The hydrogen and
fuel cell center
ZBT GmbH

A central element of the German national hydrogen strategy is the use of "green hydrogen" for mobility and industry to ensure a sustainable, climate and environmentally friendly future. Hydrogen is considered "green" if it is produced from renewable energy sources, especially wind and solar power, by means of water electrolysis. This requires electrolysers which are tested at ZBT on stack and system level.

In cooperation with the Institute for Combustion Engines (vka) at RWTH Aachen University, a modular, real-time-capable simulation model of PEM fuel cell systems for cold-start investigations is being developed as part of an FVV funded project.

Die Kompetenzen des ZBT in der Prozess- und Anlagenentwicklung sollen weiter ausgebaut und per-sonell verstärkt werden. Konkret erwarten Sie FuE-Projekte zur hocheffizienten Wasserstofferzeugung aus Ammoniak für den Einsatz in Brennstoffzellen und Motoren, deren zukünftige Anwendungen auf Schiffen und im stationären Bereich zur Strom- und Wärmeversorgung liegen.
