https://news.brown.edu/articles/2018/10/catalyst New, durable catalyst for key fuel cell reaction may prove useful in eco-friendly vehicles October 16, 2018 Media contact: Kevin Stacey 401-863-3766 The new catalyst, developed by Brown University researchers, exceeds Department of Energy targets for performing the oxygen reduction reaction, a key step in generating an electric current in a hydrogen fuel cell. PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] — One factor holding back the widespread use of eco-friendly hydrogen fuel cells in cars, trucks and other vehicles is the cost of the platinum catalysts that make the cells work. One approach to using less precious platinum is to combine it with other cheaper metals, but those alloy catalysts tend to degrade quickly in fuel cell conditions. Now, researchers from Brown University have developed a new alloy catalyst that both reduces platinum use and holds up well in fuel cell testing. The catalyst, made from alloying platinum with cobalt in nanoparticles, was shown to beat U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) targets for the year 2020 in both reactivity and durability, according to tests described in the journal Joule. [...] Initial testing showed that the catalyst performed well in the laboratory setting, outperforming a more traditional platinum alloy catalyst. The new catalyst maintained its activity after 30,000 voltage cycles, whereas the performance of the traditional catalyst dropped off significantly. But while lab tests are important for assessing the properties of a catalyst, the researchers say, they don't necessarily show how well the catalyst will perform in an actual fuel cell. The fuel cell environment is much hotter and differs in acidity compared to laboratory testing environments, which can accelerate catalyst degradation. To find out how well the catalyst would hold up in that environment, the researchers sent the catalyst to the Los Alamos National Lab for testing in an actual fuel cell. The testing showed that the catalyst beats targets set by the Department of Energy (DOE) for both initial activity and longer-term durability. DOE has challenged researchers to develop catalyst with an initial activity of 0.44 amps per milligram of platinum by 2020, and an activity of at least 0.26 amps per milligram after 30,000 voltage cycles (roughly equivalent to five years of use in a fuel cell vehicle). Testing of the new catalyst showed that it had an initial activity of 0.56 amps per milligram and an activity after 30,000 cycles of 0.45 amps. "Even after 30,000 cycles, our catalyst still exceeded the DOE target for initial activity," Sun said. "That kind of performance in a real-world fuel cell environment is really promising." The researchers have applied for a provisional patent on the catalyst, and they hope to continue to develop and refine it. The work was supported by the DOE's Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Fuel Cell Technologies Office. Other coauthors on the paper were Shubham Sharma, Xiaoming Liu, Yung-Tin Pan, Jacob S.

If you want cheap take a look at PHE way more upside potential as it can eliminate plastic as well as produce hydrogen

Oh, that little word 'just' ;¬) We don't 'just' have a seller - the share price has been falling in a straight line for 12 months: we have a serious situation that the management needs to address urgently. The lack of high-powered sales and finance directors has been a clear problem for as long as I've been watching this. I don't like to agree with Norbus about anything, but there's really no excuse for not fixing these twin problems.

I also note the recent chaos at Paddington due to overhead power lines being brought down - not the first time, and certainly not the last. Think how much of this infrastructure would not be required if HS2 used hydrogen trains rather than 'electrified' and how many such incidents would be avoided over the lifetime of the line...

SQ 1 The excitement is the profitability of a 100MW electrolysis/storage as proved by Musk's Australian 100MW battery; couple that[ Ionious feasibility] with Northern Gas project and you see the art of the possible.

Interesting read in The Telegraph- KPMG estimate that it would save £150-200bn to convert UK homes to hydrogen against the cost of rewiring homes. Also mention the hydrogen blending trial in the North East

and Quilter held 5.5% or 17,750,088 as at 30th April 1, more than Herald IT, less than Schroders. Yesterday's announcement suggests they have sold over 9.6m, explaining the current share price and demand supply imbalance.

ITM could surely get around BREXIT related concerns within Europe by operating from their German subsidiary. Makes sense given the quality reference plant already in situ.

Good article re Greenhouse Gas Emissions in the Telegraph this morning. Picture of Hyundai NEXO, with comments surrounding transport, which is the largest contributor to UK emissions.
