Toyota Research Institute (TRI) and Northwestern University are to work on a nanomaterial ‘data factory’ whose applications will cover clean hydrogen production, carbon dioxide removal from the air and solar cells.
Brian Storey, TRI senior director of energy and materials, said meeting the growing demand for mobility without emitting carbon is a major challenge.
“Through this partnership with Northwestern, we have significantly reduced the time it takes to test and find new materials that can be used in batteries and fuel cells to decarbonise transportation.”
While the first application of the data factory will be used to discover new catalysts to make fuel cell vehicles more efficient, TRI and Northwestern believe this method of materials discovery will have broader applications.
