Innovative automotive MEA development – implementation of IPHE-GENIE achievements targeted at excellence

The prime focus of IMMEDIATE is to develop high performing MEAs aimed for automotive applications through material R&D & process optimisation. The technical targets aimed in IMMEDIATE are addressing the JTI targets for automotive MEAs with respect to performance & cost. The proposed project is a continuation of the recently terminated and very successful FP6 R&D-project: IPHE-GENIE. The IMMEDIATE project approach is based on utilisation and further improvement of the materials and processes. Thus, the approach and the technical IMMEDIATE targets are as follows:
-Development of a membrane with
-A proton conductivity of at least 0.1 S/cm at 120?C & 25% RH
-Thermal stability up to 160?C
-Low dimensional changes (Topic:SP1-JTI-FCH.2011.1.5 Next generation European MEAs for transportation Applications
