Researchers at Waterloo Engineering have dramatically improved the durability of fuel cells, paving the way for the clean technology to replace gasoline engines in vehicles.
Making fuel cells last at least 10 times longer means they could be simplified and produced at a far lower cost. If mass-produced, that would make them economically practical to power cars and trucks.
“The future is very bright,” said Xianguo Li, a professor of mechanical and mechatronics engineering and WIN member who heads the Fuel Cell and Green Energy Lab at Waterloo. “This is clean energy that could boom.”
