A stable and active low-cost catalyst for the replacement of platinum

Renewable & Hydrogen Energy

Prototype

The technology provides a cost-effective means to replace the platinum catalyst in a polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cell with carbon-based nanoflakes having iron dispersed at the atomic scale. The new catalyst particles combine stability with activity, and give the desired purity for the application while simplifying the process flow.
