Next generation automotive MEA development

The proposals should focus on reducing the total platinum loading compared to current state of the art MEAs (currently in the range of 0.25 to 0.35 mg/cm2) and increasing current density to levels that enable a significant reduction of the total stack active area. The proposals will need to address several areas of development at the same time, which some of them include work on the following areas: Catalyst Support; Catalyst Layer ionomer;Catalyst Layer design; and MEA Integration.
