SEVENTH FRAMEWORK PROGRAMME
 

THEME 5 ENERGY

 

ENERGY.2007.1.1.1: Basic research for materials and processes for Polymer Electrolyte Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFC)
 

 

Project acronym: ZEOCELL

 

Project full title:  NANOSTRUCTURED ELECTROLYTE MEMBRANES BASED ON POLYMER/IONIC LIQUIDS/ZEOLITE COMPOSITES FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE PEM FUEL CELLS
 

 

 

 

The overall objective of the project is to develop a nanostructured electrolyte membrane suitable for operating at 150- 200ºC in high temperature PEMFCs based on a new composite multifunctional material made by the synergic combination of zeolites, ionic liquids and polymers. This electrolyte membrane will have the following properties:
 

§  High ionic conductivity: =100 mS/cm at 150ºC .

§  Suitability for operating at temperatures between 130- 200ºC (the membrane materials are conceived to be thermically stable up to 200ºC . Membrane performance will be validated on single cells at temperatures up to 150ºC minimum).

§  Good chemical, mechanical and thermal stability up to 200ºC .

§  Durable (<1% of performance degradation during the first 1000 hours working).

§  Low fuel cross-over (<five times lower than Nafion; methanol permeability = 3x10-7 cm2 s-1)

§  Reduced fabrication costs compared to current technology (< 400 EUR/m2).
