Title: Carbon Nitride Supported Iridium Oxide (IrO2) Catalyst for Proton Exchange Membrane Electrolysis
Agency: DOE
Contract: DE-FG02-12ER90287
Award Amount: $149,977.00
 

Abstract:

Hydrogen production from proton exchange membrane water electrolysis is attractive due to its simple and clean nature. But it is still expensive resulting from expensive materials (membrane, catalyst, and bipolar plate) and electricity consumption. The industries and Department of Energy have been striving to reduce the cost of this technology. The overall objective of this project is to develop and commercialize a highly active and economically feasible catalyst, which may significantly lower the cost of hydrogen production from proton exchange membrane electrolysis. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: The synthesized catalyst will be first used in the electrolysis industry for cost reduction. Its approach may be extended to other wide applications including fuel cells, batteries and capacitors
