Production of Energy from High Performance, Platinum-Free Fuel Cells

  • Comments off

Thanks to innovative anode electrocatalysts based on nanostructured palladium, the first entirely platinum-free fuel cells have been created that release a power density greater than 500 mW cm-2. Their use could revive hydrogen technology for cars and portable energy generators with “zero emissions” of pollutants. The research was coordinated by ICCOM-Cnr of Florence. A fuel […]
