ZBT Science news

At this year's Electrochemical Cell Concepts Colloquium - E3C, Dr. Marco Grundler from ZBT won the audience award for the best presentation. His keynote "Sustainable production of bipolar plates for PEM fuel cells" convinced the participants.
Campfire partners met at the ammonia campfire at ZBT for the workshop "Emission-free Maritime Propulsion".
MAT4HY.NRW brings together research institutes and industrial partners to develop cost-effective materials for the mass production of hydrogen. The state of North Rhine-Westphalia is funding the project, in which ZBT is also involved.
The task of the Trans4ReaL project is to bundle the research results of the Living Labs of the Energy Transition and to derive approaches for action from them. A report on the current need for action in the ramp-up of the hydrogen economy has now been published.
Together with partners, the ZBT is developing a process for the economic production of sensor fuel cells in small runs using 3D printing and electroplating technology. Such cells are used in the development of fuel cell systems.
