Latest information on our scientific projects

Here we do inform you on our current projects at ZBT. You will find the published project reports in our publication list. For any further inquiries please contact us directly.

In order to reduce the costs of PEM electrolysis, ZBT and the Ruhr University Bochum launched a project to optimize porous transport layers.
The ZBT is currently developing a standardised test procedure to check the cold-start ability of PEM fuel cells and to assess their damage behaviour.
In the BipolarPilot project, ZBT and KCS Europe are working on scaling up a new coating system for metallic bipolar plates. This includes the construction of a pilot plant.
With its partners WätaS, Laufenberg, FEV, Olbrich, and RWTH Aachen University, ZBT develops a fuel cell stack with high performance, robustness and marketable efficiency that can be produced at a lower cost than current products on the market.
The PRHYDE Consortium plans to provide an update on project progress at its next webinar on April 21, 2022.
