Next-generation membrane electrode assemblies for electrochemical converters
In order to achieve set climate targets, sustainable mobility must also become a reality for heavy-duty commercial vehicles. “ionysis GmbH”, which was newly founded on September 1, develops highly efficient, emission-free and sustainable core components for fuel cells. This includes significantly reducing the content of perfluorinated compounds in what are known as “membrane electrode units,” a questionable component that is increasingly being outlawed worldwide due to its harming effects on the environment.
With the support of the University of Freiburg, a team from the “Electrochemical Energy Systems” research area at Hahn-Schickard in Freiburg has just founded “ionysis GmbH” to develop more efficient membrane electrode units for fuel cells toward market maturity with the help of strong partners.
