The objective is to gain knowledge about the activation process of a HTPEM fuel cell regarding the increase in performance during the first approx. 100 hours.
Methods include electrochemical MEA performance testing, microscopy and other relevant techniques.

Power Systems, founded in 1994 and located north of Copenhagen, Denmark, is a
dynamic development- and manufacturing company working in the fields of
chemistry and energy with primary focus on fuel cells. The company currently
has 24 employees.
Power Systems works with a fuel cell technology called HTPEM (High Temperature
Polymer Electrolyte Membrane fule cells) and manufactures the critical
component called a MEA (Membrane Electrolyte Assembly) in which electricity is
generated by a reaction between a hydrogen containing gas, typically based on
methanol- and air.
Power Systems is one of the very few companies in the world that can
manufacture the material, polybenzimidazole (PBI), which the fuel cell’s
polymer membrane is made of, making us incredibly competitive on the fuel cell
Power Systems has established a number of excellent R&D relationships with
leading universities and companies worldwide bringing us closer to the market.
This gives us a unique understanding of the individual needs, specifications
and requirements of our customers, and facilitates our effort in delivering
state of the art customized technology to our customers.
