Researchers advance fuel cell technology

Researchers at Washington State University have made a key advancement in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) that could make them a more suitable alternative to gasoline combustion engines for powering cars.

Led by PhD graduate Qusay Bkour and Professor Su Ha in the Gene and Linda Voiland School of Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering, the team developed a unique and inexpensive nanoparticle catalyst that allows the fuel cell to convert logistic liquid fuels to electricity without stalling during the electrochemical process.

“People are very concerned about energy, the environment, and global warming,” said Bkour.
