Researchers in India develop green technology that will lead to low-cost, durable fuel cells

Indian scientists have made platinum-based electrocatalysts that can be used in fuel cells. Fuel cells are devices that use energy to make DC electricity from hydrogen, and they also make water as a byproduct. The main problem is that it costs a lot to get parts from other countries.

Key Highlight:

  • Indian scientists have produced platinum-based electrocatalysts for fuel cells, a huge step forward in green energy technology.
  • The developed electrocatalyst outperformed commercially available electrocatalyst in fuel cell performance, corrosion resistance, and a lifetime of fuel cell stack performance.
  • The main disadvantage of electrocatalyst technology is the high cost of importing components.
  • The platinum-based electrocatalyst helps extend the life of the fuel cell and saves costs.
  • The ARCL technology should be commercialized in the next quarter.

Indian scientists have taken a huge step forward in developing green energy technology. They have made platinum-based electrocatalysts for use in fuel cells at home. The electrocatalyst that was made had similar properties to the commercially available electrocatalyst in terms of how well it worked in fuel cells, how well it resisted corrosion, and how long it could last in fuel cell stacks. Fuel cells are devices that convert energy from hydrogen into DC electricity and make water as a byproduct. They can be used for transportation, material handling, emergency backup power, and many other things.

Even though electrocatalyst technology has a lot of benefits for green energy production, the main problem is that it costs a lot to bring in parts from other countries. One of the most important parts of the platinum-based electrocatalyst is that it helps the fuel cell last longer and cuts down costs.

ARCI is an independent research center run by the department of science and technology, and the work done by its scientists has been published in the “International Journal of Hydrogen Energy.” A patent has also been filed, the department said in a statement.

Tata Narasinga Rao, the director of the ARCI, said that making electrocatalysts in India will help green hydrogen technology take off in India. Atmanirbhar Bharat thinks that making your electrocatalysts could help Atmanirbhar Bharat. This would help Atmanirbhar Bharat. This technology is going to be sold in the next few months. There are also plans to use the platinum-based electrocatalyst for other things. Las Engineers and Consultants Pvt. Ltd. (LECPL), a Mumbai-based company that designs and builds plants for chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and other industries, is getting the know-how from ARCI so that it can make the electrocatalyst.

Raman Vedarajan, one of the people who came up with the technology, thinks this is important because it will help make “Made in India” durable polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell stacks.
