Professor Jeffrey Greeley's research group aims to cut costs of fuel cells in electric vehicles; study published in Science
Purdue Chemical Engineering Professor Jeffrey Greeley and his research group are aiming to reduce the costs of electric vehicle fuel cells by cutting down on the amount of platinum in the fuel cell electrodes. Their new method evaluates how much metal would be required for fuel cell electrodes. The technique uses the forces on a metal's surface to identify the ideal electrode thickness. Their study, published in the February 22 issue of the journal Science, is a collaborative effort between Johns Hopkins University, Purdue University, and the University of California at Irvine.
