Scientists create cheap and safe electro-catalysts for anion-exchange fuel cells

Green Car Congress

Scientists from the University of Surrey and their colleagues have produced non-metal electro-catalysts for fuel cells that could pave the way for production of low-cost, environmentally friendly energy generation. In a study published in the Journal of Power Sources , the team from Surrey worked with colleagues from Queen Mary University of London to create low-cost carbon based electro-catalysts for anion-exchange membrane fuel cells (AEMFC).
