Fuel Cell Breakthrough may Replace Car Batteries

by John N, EDGY LABS

Proton-exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFCs) are considered a valuable alternative energy technology capable of efficiently generating clean power. If these kinds of fuel cells can be made smaller and more cost-effective, they could potentially replace Li-ion batteries.

Scientists at Liverpool University have figured out a way to more efficiently transport proton charges in PEMFCs with the potential to make fuel cells a commercially viable energy option.

A fuel cell converts hydrogen and oxygen into water.  Therefore, a fuel cell is an electrochemical energy conversion device that produces power, water, and heat as byproducts. Continue reading Fuel Cell Breakthrough may Replace Car Batteries
