PANEL DISCUSSION

Degradation / Durability Studies and Validation for Micro- and Small Fuel Cells: "Should Do" or "Must Do"

Panel Moderator: Emory S. De Castro, E-TEK Division, PEMEAS Fuel Cell Technologies

Panelists:

Philip Cox, PolyFuel, Inc.

Jerry Hallmark, Motorola Labs

George Miley, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Xiaoming Ren, Acta S.p.A.

Questions addressed by this Panel Discussion include but are not limited to:

- What is the gap between what has been achieved for lifetime and what is needed?

- Can higher precious metal (PM) loadings decrease the gap between performance/lifetime and application needs?

- Would PM recovery change this equation? Consumer recycling?

- Will anode lifetime solutions come from materials (better alloys) or engineering (management of start-stop cycles)?

- Will platinum-ruthenium alloys work for commercial systems or does a new anode catalyst need to be invented?

- Do "hot" technologies (RMFC) offer earlier entry to portable compared to DMFC?

- Is the inherent decrease in PM and increase in power offset by higher system complexity/cost?

- Is durability made worse with RMFC?

Companies Mentioned:

- Casio

- Jadoo Power

- Los Alamos National Laboratory

- Motorola

- Samsung

- Seiko

- Toshiba

- U.S. Department of Energy
