New development could significantly reduce fuel cell stack production costs

GenCell has unveiled a new development that could significantly reduce the manufacturing costs of fuel cell stacks.

The Israel-based company today (15th March) confirmed the news, unveiling a new catalyst that is not based on noble metals (palladium), and therefore provides an economical substitute.

Sharing details of the breakthrough, GenCell said the process by which the new catalyst accelerates chemical reactions that are necessary to generate clean electricity via electrochemical reaction inside the fuel cell is identical to the process using a catalyst based on noble metals.

With the new development, GenCell believes it can significantly reduce the manufacturing cost of each fuel cell stack, affording the company a significant competitive advantage over competitors that continue to manufacture catalysts with processes that require costly noble metals.
