technology by the prestigious Institute of Transportation Studies at UC Davis.

These cost-effective fuel cell plates can be produced in both large and small quantities, and will accelerate the acceptance of fuel cell technology by consumers and commercial industries.

“Test results over a period of two days demonstrated that EcoComposite’s proprietary plate technology functioned appropriately and the performance was similar to that expected from graphite plates normally used in fuel cells,”” said Marshall Miller, Senior Development Engineer at the Institute. “Based upon these test results, there is every expectation that EcoComposite’s fuel cell plates will perform well in fuel cell systems and can be used as a much more economic alternative to standard graphite and other plate systems currently available.”

The neutral, third party tests were performed on prototype fuel cells built using the Becker plate technology in a standard configuration.

The Becker Fuel Cell Plate is named after its inventor, Mr. Rolf Becker, founder of EcoComposite. “This recent achievement opens the door for cost-effective fuel cell systems to be produced in both large and small quantities,” stated Becker. “EcoComposite will play a critical role in the advancement of the fuel cell industry and acceleration of acceptance of fuel cell technology by consumers and commercial industries.”
