Our Technology

Our technology is well suited for both low temperature and high temperature PEM fuel cells, but could also extend to electrolyzers, REDOX batteries, or direct methanol fuel cells. Our developments show an excellent resistance to the corrosive environment of PEM fuel cells, and can be used up to 180°C. Our flow plates have a web thickness of 0.3mm (so far!), a density of 1g/cm3 and the ongoing test have not revealed any degradation due to the fuel cell environment.

1.5 g/cm3 bipolar plates

Our carbon based component are lightweight. As of today, we managed to produce 1.5 g/cm3 bipolar plates. This is 1.7 times lighter than state of the art 0.1 mm thick metalic plates, 10 times lighter than 3 mm thick traditional composite plates.

Corrosion resistant

No sign of corrosive degradation have been detected on the ongoing tests. This means a longer life time for fuel cells, suitable for both low and high temperature PEMFCs.

High temperature resistant

Our product can resist to a wide range of temperature up to 180 °C. High temperature fuel cells are more tolerant to gas impurities. Thus, a wide new range of gas sources becomes possible.

0.3mm web thickness

Our materials do not compromise the compactness of the stack. Our plates are 5 to 6 times thinner than other composite bipolar plates, and have equivalent thickness compare to metalic ones.
