Breakthrough Research for Fuel Cells

Hydrogen powered fuel cells for automotives are one of the cleanest and most efficient technologies for generating electricity. But until now, there have been only incremental improvements in catalyst efficiency.

The discovery of a unique platinum-nickel alloy represents a breakthrough in catalyst research: it is 90 times more active than state-of-the-art platinum catalysts currently used.
