Show, "Electrically conductive amorphous carbon coating on metal bipolar plates for PEFC," Surface and Coatings Technology, vol.
PEFCs generate power through chemical reactions of hydrogen and oxygen, contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions and enabling the production of compact and lightweight cells.
Toshimichi Yamanishi, Chief Officer of the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Technology division at NEDO, says the agency is currently working on larger PEFCs for commercial use, "As well as PEFC systems for vehicles and homes, we are in addition developing 100-200 kW stacks for use in businesses."
EFCF will offer an optional tutorial on Monday, July 4, with both events -- "Fuel Cells for a Sustainable World" and the "3rd European Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cell (PEFC) Forum" -- to open the following morning.
The Company has scheduled to display its PEFCs electrode catalyst at FC EXPO 2013, the 9th International Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Expo located at Tokyo Big Sight (Koto-ku, Tokyo) over three days from February 27 (Wed) until March 1 (Fri).
Maxell has developed a new catalyst for oxygen-reduction reactions in PEFCs. The new catalyst is a composition of platinum and gold and is resistant to acidic environments.
Most of the PEFCs currently under development are hydrogen based systems and are part of a drive towards a 'hydrogen economy' advocated by many scientists and policymakers in Japan.
"Its high performance of low-surface electrical contact resistivity, mass-productivity and cost-competitiveness qualify it as a practicable base material for PEFCs, which are strongly required to deliver higher performance while being lighter even if only slightly, more compact if only a little and less expensive to produce as much as possible."
Now, the company is also exploring the possibilities of PEFCs, which have higher power density than methanol cells and less environmental impact since they convert water into hydrogen.
