“Multi-stabilized hybrid membranes for fuel cell and electrolyser”
My PhD is part of a larger ANR, MULTISTABLE, which aims at developing high performance and durable hybrid membranes for transport and stationary application in operating temperatures above 120°C using a versatile approach based on Sol Gel chemistry. Due to the environmental concerns and the search for efficient and cost-effective clean energy generation, proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) are receiving much attention. Hydrogen technology offers a chemical storage solution for the electrical energy produced by the proton exchange membrane electrolyzer (PEMWE). This chemical energy can subsequently be restored in the form of electrical energy by the PEMFCs. With the attractively high hydrogen energy density and its clean conversion in electric cells, it is becoming an important element in the search for clean energy and pollution free transport.
