Porvair Fuel Cell Technology Wins $6.1 Million for Fuel Cell Research

13 July 2001


Porvair Fuel Cell Technology, a subsidiary of U.K.-based advanced materials group Porvair plc, will receive $6.1 million for fuel cell research. The multi-million dollar, cost-shared contract will be used over a three year period to improve bipolar plate technology that will help to make fuel cell commercialization a reality.

Specifically, Porvair was selected by the US Department of Energy (DOE) to develop carbon/carbon composite bipolar plates for PEM fuel cells. The company will also address the development of high-volume production methods for the composite bipolar plates.

Jim Stike, president of PFCT, said the new funding would be available later in the year and would allow PFCT to hire more resources, build necessary facilities and buy equipment that will allow the company to manufacture components for the fuel cell industry.

Porvair Fuel Cell Technology is a progressive corporation pioneering the manufacturing of advanced materials and components used in fuel cell technology.
