Producing “organic” fuel cells: Which petroleum-based materials can be replaced by renewable raw materials? ZBT is working with partner institutes on innovative materials that will make fuel cells even more sustainable.
How can the advantages of a power bank and a fuel cell be combined in a portable system? Researchers at the ZBT have developed such a system.
In order to reduce the costs of PEM electrolysis, ZBT and the Ruhr University Bochum launched a project to optimize porous transport layers.
The ZBT is currently developing a standardised test procedure to check the cold-start ability of PEM fuel cells and to assess their damage behaviour.
In the BipolarPilot project, ZBT and KCS Europe are working on scaling up a new coating system for metallic bipolar plates. This includes the construction of a pilot plant.
