The Chemsultants International Fuel Cell Technology Group and its partner, Michigan Molecular Institute, have successfully completed research and development of a new and novel Fuel Cell Membrane technology. Partially funded by a Department of Energy grant (Award No. DE-FG36-06GO86043), the new membrane technology offers promise in achieving improved fuel cell performance in high temperature and low humidity operating environments such as automotive power applications.
The company recently filed a
U.S. Patent application (No. 12/231,501) for a Multilayered Composite Proton Exchange Membrane and a Process for
Manufacturing the Same. The patent covers three areas of
technology including a highly modified membrane polymer, a functional nano
particle additive, and a novel process for solution casting multilayer membrane
Chemsultants is continuing
development and optimization of several variants of the new membrane
technology. The company’s goal is to develop a commercial fuel cell membrane
product that will help address the growing national need for renewable energy
sources. “These product development efforts are consistent with Chemsultants
core polymer technology capabilities and our interest in high technology driven
growth opportunities for the Company” said Gary Avalon, C.O.O. of Chemsultants
