Investigation of membrane treatment procedures for enhanced durability in HTPEM fuel cells

Udbyder

Virksomhed / Organisation

Sted

København og omegn

Chemical and mechanical stability of the membranes used in HTPEM fuel cells are intrinsic for long term durability. Different treatment procedures are available to influence the properties, optimizing them for the respective requirements.

The practical work includes:

  • Development of a membrane treatment procedure
  • MEA assembly
  • Electrochemical testing
  • Durability testing with different protocols
  • Selective ex-situ characterization

Proposed DTU institute: Energy (proposed supervisors): Qingfeng Li (qfli@dtu.dk), Jens Oluf Jensen (jojen@dtu.dk).

Company: Danish Power Systems (www.daposy.dk), contact person Merit Bodner (mebo@daposy.dk). 

Danish 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.

Danish 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.

Danish 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 market.

Danish 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. 

For general information, contact Hans Aage Hjuler, CEO (hah@daposy.dk).
