A 300,000 mile fuel cell for hydrogen vehicles?
Would fuel cell vehicles be more appealing to you if they had a fuel source that was comparable to the best light-weight diesel engines? Or, more simply put, could offer you the equivalent of 300,000 driven miles?
That’s a bold claim indeed given the nascent state of this emerging green vehicle market, but one which ACAL Energy thinks it can make.
ACAL Energy said it recently had developed a proton exchange membrane (PEM) hydrogen fuel cell that “reached 10,000 hours runtime on a third party automotive industry durability test without any significant signs of degradation.” This endurance is said to easily beat current U.S. Department of Energy targets for fuel cell powered vehicles to last 5,000 hours, equivalent to 150,000 road miles, with an expected degradation threshold of approximately 10%.
