The larger part of the
costs of fuel cells up to date derive from high catalyst loadings, meant to guaranty
high and stable performance. Previous results, however, allow the assumption
that platinum catalyst – especially on the anode - is not utilized fully and
thus a reduction of loading without affecting the reliability is possible.
The practical work
- Electrode manufacturing in
- MEA assembly
- Electrochemical testing
- Durability testing
- Selective ex-situ

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.
