Fujitsu Laboratories Develops New FC Material Technology.

Fujitsu Laboratories, Ltd. recently announced the development of a new fuel cell (FC) material technology that enables the use of 30 percent methanol as a fuel source, as well as a prototype power unit that incorporates the technology.

According to Fujitsu Laboratories, the technology comprises an aromatic hydrocarbon solid electrolyte material covered with a high density of highly active platinum-based nano-particle catalyst with methanol blocking properties, which works to "[reduce] the total [membrane electrode assembly (MEA)] methanol crossover effect to one-tenth that encountered with typical fluorinated polymers."

Fujitsu Laboratories noted that the new technology allows for "much higher power capacities for passive micro [FCs] and realizes longer runtimes for mobile devices...."
