Fuel Cell Membranes

Fuel cell membranes are one of the most promising fuel cell technologies with the ability to operate a low enough temperature suitable for homes and vehicles. But their fuels must be purified, and a platinum catalyst is used on both sides of the membrane, raising costs.

For fuel cells to operate, membranes are needed to carry hydrogen ions and protons from the anode to the cathode to enable electrons to pass and produce a voltage. These exchange membranes are sandwiched between an anode electrode and a cathode electrode in most fuel cells. Oceanit’s functional fabric technology allows these membranes to be replaced with a less expensive and better performing membrane.

  • Longer operating durability
  • Lower cost and better performing membrane
