Inkjet manufacturing of CCMs for PEMFC by development of catalytic inks & their deposition (IMMENSE)
The project is focusing on the material development for inkjet printing of catalytic layers directly on top of a membrane. The aim is to generate catalyst coated membranes (CCM) for use in fuel cells for automotive applications. We are working on the project since 7 months. There was no showstopper yet. Our specific success at this point of time is to work according to the project plan. The achievements so far are: first ingredients of the catalyst ink has been generated, catalyst layers based on existing ink have been manufactured and the workflow from material generation to CCM testing have been successfully established.
