S5: Materials Challenges in Fuel Cells



Fuel cell technologies have attracted attention for mobile applications, stationary power generation, and combined heat and power. Various kinds of fuel cells are produced and sold commercially for a wide range applications. However, continued fundamental and applied research is essential to reduce production costs and increase durability. This symposium will bring together leading researchers and technologists working in critical areas, such as new materials, degradation processes, and systems engineering, to discuss state-of-the-art developments in fuel cell technologies. Topics will focus on proton exchange membrane fuel cells, solid oxide fuel cells, solid oxide electrolysis cells, molten carbonate fuel cells, and direct methanol fuel cells.


Proposed Session Topics:

  • Materials development and microstructure engineering    
  • Processing of cell components
  • Transport phenomena and degradation
  • Modeling and design of stacks
