Storing green electricity chemically instead of regulating it – this is possible with hydrogen and its derivatives. E-methane is a climate-neutral energy source if the carbon is captured from the air. A project that has now been launched is exploring the technical possibilities.
Fuel cell systems can be a sustainable alternative to diesel drives in long-distance lorry transport. In a new research project, ZBT is developing a degradation model to simultaneously maximise the energy efficiency and service life of fuel cells through efficient operating strategies.
PFAS könnten bald verboten werden. Kann für Wärmeübertragerplatten Graphit-Polyphenylensufid eine Alternative sein? Das ZBT entwickelt ein Extrusionsverfahren für dieses Material.
In order to make fuel cells fit for cost-effective mass production, ZBT is investigating new, creative methods. The idea behind the recently launched project "TheBiPo" is to extrude a film from a graphite-polymer compound and then thermoform it into finished bipolar plates.
The MetroHyVe 2 project compares European sampling systems for hydrogen filling stations. At the second sampling event, the systems had to show what they can do. The samples were immediately sent on to the laboratory.
