Large-area engineered MEAs for stack integration have been developed at IRD based on the electrocatalysts provided by TFP Hydrogen and CNR-ITAE as well as on the activated membrane. The MEA have been provided to Hydrogenics and CNR-ITAE for preliminary testing; A large-area MEA was operated for 1000h at 1A cm-2 showing cell voltage close to 2 V/cell and sustained several BoP interruptions. The full set of large-area MEA (25) has been delivered from IRD to Hydrogenics.
The results are documented in D5.2.
