The electric drive for the cathode flaps has a large reserve capacity. The exhaust side of the cathodes is enriched with water to provide the necessary level of safety, ensuring that they function reliably even in freezing temperatures.
The Global Fuel cell cathode flap market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
Our fuel cell stack technology is undergoing significant refinement at Ballard. They will concentrate on developments in catalyst technology in this article. Other advances in fuel cell components will be discussed in a subsequent article.
details about the most recent advances in fuel cell technology In the design of hydrogen fuel cells, catalyst layers are coated on either side of a proton-exchange membrane (PEM) to catalyze the oxygen reduction and hydrogen oxidation reactions that are desired at the anode and cathode, respectively.
The membrane electrode assembly (MEA) is constructed by sandwiching the catalyst-coated membrane between two carbon paper-based gas diffusion layers (GDLs). Within a stack of multiple cells, this is then placed between bipolar plates and gaskets to form a single fuel cell.
The development of recent catalysts is crucial to the future of fuel cell technology and the widespread commercialization of clean electric power for industry and transportation because:
Reduce fuel cell costs by using fewer precious metals, increase durability with new catalyst layer designs, and make fuel cells more resistant to a variety of operating conditions. The catalyst in the cathode and anode layers of the majority of designs is based on platinum (Pt), a very expensive precious metal.
Platinum can contribute 10-15% of the expense of an energy unit stack. Except if the Pt content is decreased, it will address a bigger piece of the expense as assembling volumes increment.
As a result, reducing the amount of platinum in products has received a lot of attention because platinum may prevent fuel cells from becoming widely used.
Ballard and Nisshinbo Holdings are supplying the world’s first non-precious metal catalyst-based PEM FC product, which was recently announced.
