US consortium to develop next-generation fuel cell technology

A US-based consortium is working to develop breakthrough materials to help strengthen manufacturing in the fuel cell sector and bring high-temperature proton exchange membrane (HT-PEM) fuel cells to market.

The group is formed of Advent Technologies Holding, the US Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) and National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).

Together, the group plans to fulfil the promise of “Any Fuel. Anywhere.” for HT-PEM fuel cells. The technology can allow ships to run on renewable methanol or ammonia, airplanes to run on dimethyl ether (DME) or hydrogen, and off-grid power generators to work with any green fuel that is easily transportable to remote locations.

Under the terms of a development agreement signed earlier this week (1st March), Advent’s team of scientists will work closely with LANL, BNL and NREL counterparts over the coming years.
