New consortium to develop advanced hydrogen fuel cell technology for heavy-duty trucks

A major new European consortium has been launched to develop advanced hydrogen fuel cell technology for heavy-duty trucks.

The €3.8m ($4.5m) project, called Immortal, hopes to decarbonise freight transport by developing high-performance hydrogen fuel cell components for heavy-duty trucks that have a predicted lifespan of at least 30,000 hours.

Backed by major stakeholders in Europe’s fuel cell supply – Johnson Matthey, Bosch, AVL, FPT Industrial, CNRS Montpellier, AVL, CNH Industrial – a major focus of the group is on long term durability which in turn, would make hydrogen fuel cell technology a more attractive choice to power heavy-duty trucks.

Johnson Matthey will work on fuel cell electrocatalysts and membrane components, and integrate them into catalyst-coated membranes with catalyst layers to tailor for enhanced performance and longer life.
