Company Summary

We have developed a liquid method of delivering oxygen into the fuel cell which removes the need for 75% of the platinum used in conventional systems. As well as reducing the cost of PEM fuel Cells the technology also overcomes the major degradation mechanisms that limit the lifetime in air supplied systems. We delivered our first field trial unit with our partner and investor Solvay and have just received our first contract with a major auto OEM
