Fuel Cell

 

Production Technology and Organization

The group "Fuel Cell: Production Technology and Organization" deals with the production technology of PEM fuel cells regarding mobile applications. The scientists' focus is on the scalability of the processes in order to enable a cost reduction for fuel cell technology. The technical issues range from the overall system, in which the balance-of-plant components in particular require major optimization, to the repeat parts in the stack such as the membrane, catalyst, gas diffusion layers, and bipolar plates. By building prototypes and integrating them into vehicles, the PEM experts are demonstrating their medium-term economic use under real conditions.
