The worldwide race to find better, cleaner, and more durable sources of energy is as frenzied as it gets. As for fuel cells, the more durable they are and higher capacity they have, the better. The recent boom in electric cars usage, most notably the Japanese’ plan to utilize them in transporting athletes during the 2020 Olympics, demands that the fuel cells for these cars be improved to store and transport energy quickly, and more importantly, with better sustenance. This matter has recently seen a solution through the project named "New-generation nanomaterials – Manufacture and Application in fuel cells for future mobile engines", executed by PhD. Nguyen Van My – a researcher at the Center for Research of Nanostructured Materials and molecules. According to Mr. My, developing materials to make proton exchange membranes capable of operating in physical conditions is being explored intensively. Traditional materials used for these membranes are perfluorosulfonic … [Read more...] about Fuel cells strengthened by nano research
