The Platform Main Activities
Hydrogen production via reforming
The main objectives are: obtaining and characterization of some performance reforming catalysts; designing of a membrane reformer which is achieving the simultaneous generation and separation of hydrogen, permitting the hydrogen purification unit to be cancelled and lowering the reaction temperature.
The main objectives are: obtaining and characterization of microporous inorganic membranes as competitive substitutes for costly palladium membranes.
Hydrogen storage on metal hydrides
The main objectives are: increasing the storage capacity by: designing of some alloys systems on the base of transition metal (Ti, Zr) and/or alkaline metal (specially Mg with additives from the Fe group); the improvement of the obtaining method for micro and nano-crystalline powdery materials; kinetics studies of H2 absorption; safety issues.
Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell
The main objectives are: synthesis and experimental characterization of membrane electrode ensemble for proton exchange membrane fuel cells; design, modeling and experimental study of a H2/Air PEM fuel cell stack; development of a coupled system, hydrogen storage unit-fuel cells stack, used in mobile and stationary applications; optimizing the gas and water economy.
Solid Oxide Fuel Cell
The main objectives are: obtaining of ceramic materials for anode (cermets from Ni and ZrO2 stabilized with Y2O3 (Ni-YSZ)) and for cathode (La1-x(Sr, Ca)MnO3) where x = 0,2 – 0,6; processing and characterization of oxide materials for medium temperature SOFC (7000C –8000C).
The membrane reformer will achieve the simultaneous generation and separation of hydrogen, permitting the hydrogen purification unit to be cancelled and lowering the reaction temperature.
