Without in-situ tests, a final qualification of materials intended for use in PEM fuel cells is not possible. Our capacities for this have now been expanded due to the high demand from the industry.
In the IGF project 15 EWN, ZBT developed novel electrodes for lithium-sulphur batteries based on lithium sulphide (Li2S) as cathode material together with project partners of the University of Cologne, Chair of Inorganic and Materials Chemistry and the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE), Chair of Energy Technology.
Since March 2021, the ZBT has been acting for three years in a joint project within the framework of the National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology Innovation Program (NIP) for the quality assurance of gas diffusion layers for fuel cells.
A nice holiday photo or the return voucher for an unsuitable dress from an online shop is something you like to quickly print at home with an inkjet printer. In collaboration with the TU Chemnitz, we used this technique to print cathode catalyst layers for PEM fuel cells directly onto a polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM).
A good example of the successful (long-standing) cooperation between the Institute for Product Engineering (IPE) of the University of Duisburg-Essen and the ZBT can be seen in the R&D project “Thermally conductive plastic pipes”.
