Lubrizol has received a $1m grant to advance work focused on improving the durability of proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells through enhanced membrane oxidation performance – an effort which is thought to add more than 25% to a fuel cell lifespan.
Awarded by the US Department of Energy (US DOE), the grant will help enable the advanced adoption of such technology which promises a lower cost of lifetime ownership for several different applications where PEM fuel cells will be used.
Commenting on the work, Deb Langer, Senior Vice-President of Lubrizol Corporate Ventures, said, “As a company, Lubrizol is focused on the opportunity to leverage our existing technologies and introduce new capabilities that will address challenges in emerging markets and adjacent fields.
“This grant will leverage foundational Lubrizol technologies and market knowledge in unique and valuable ways. More durable fuel cell technology will be a substantial step forward in how the world moves cleaner.”
