Demonstrating a power-to-gas process chain including various technologies such as photovoltaic, electrolyser, methanation and direct air capture
A graphene layer can significantly reduce the permeability of a fuel cell membrane without affecting the proton conductivity too much. ZBT and AMO have worked out how this can be done in the joint PROTONLY project.
Fuel cell-based mobility requires clean hydrogen. Within the NRW project Hy-Cleanup, ZBT together with Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung is investigating new materials for removal of impurities from hydrogen.
ZBT has taken delivery of a new hot press. It can be used to investigate and optimize the production of graphite-based bipolar plates. ZBT scientists believe that there is still a lot of undiscovered potential in this process.
Producing “organic” fuel cells: Which petroleum-based materials can be replaced by renewable raw materials? ZBT is working with partner institutes on innovative materials that will make fuel cells even more sustainable.
