Dr Ervin Tal-Gutelmacher, V.P. Research and Development
The electrification of the transportation industry and the continued push for green energy has spurred the automotive and transportation market to seek improved energy storage and conversion elements that combine both high energy and power - and are available in a smaller and at a lower cost. PO-Celltech's aqueous/alkaline supercapacitor and alkaline membrane fuel cell (AMFC) solutions offer a new cost-effective approach to energy storage and conversion. Recent advancements in both technologies will be oulined, with specific emphasis on the design-to-cost, innovation and development of novel materials for enhanced and reliable performance.
