pH Matter fuel cell catalysts achieve DOE 2020 targets

pH Matter, an Ohio-based company, has achieved the Department of Energy (DOE) 2020 automotive targets for catalyst activity and durability for its line of Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell catalysts.

The DOE 2020 targets were established to set metrics for automotive fuel cell material suppliers that would enable PEM fuel cells to match the cost of internal combustion engines.

“We think this is a significant target to achieve for the PEM fuel cell industry because it means the technology can now be produced at the same cost as combustion engines,” said Dr. Paul Matter, pH Matter’s President and CEO.

“As far as we know, this is the first commercially available catalyst independently verified to demonstrate the mass activity and drive cycle durability targets in a fuel cell. We still have work to do, but this is a big first step.”
