UCLA announces study success that could reduce the cost of hydrogen fuel cells

The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), US, has revealed a study which it believes could help accelerate hydrogen’s deployment for transportation and other applications.

Led by UCLA researchers, the team has developed a new method to quickly identify which alloys that are likely to achieve the best results in fuel cells which could cut the cost of catalysts, in turn making hydrogen fuel cell vehicles more affordable.

As a result of the study’s success, the research group is now collaborating with Toyota Motor Corporation to develop fuel cell catalysts with potential real-world applications, the University has said.
