Hydrogen Technology Basis for WIVA

Project description

HYTECHBASIS 4 WIVA aims to reach higher level of industrialization by developing next generation PEM fuel cell as well as high-pressure electrolysis technology.
By applying advanced catalyst coated membrane technology and the usage of sophisticated technology in bipolar plate manufacturing HYTECHBASIS 4 WIVA fundamentally improves state-of-the-art electrolysis technology. Moreover, a generic PEM fuel cell system platform based on next generation low-cost metal bipolar plates stack architecture and highly function integrated peripheral components paves the way for a broader range of marketable applications. Both the electrolysis as well as the fuel cell technology benefit from newly considered holistic approach applied in HYTECHBASIS 4 WIVA.
