Outstanding advances for hydrogen/oxygen fuel cells announced in ITM RNS today -- World beating patented technology:--


High Power Density Fuel Cells
2 November 2010
ITM Power plc


ITM Power has demonstrated exceptionally high power densities by developing its proprietary hydrocarbon membrane materials for hydrogen/oxygen fuel cells. A step change from the current state of the art has been achieved, with what is believed to be the highest power density ever recorded for a PEM fuel cell (5.5W/cm2 and 10A/cm2). ------

In order to ensure effort is directed most effectively, ITM Power is now seeking partnerships with commercial end users to provide input to the development process. A successful project would provide a pathway towards continued development and qualification of ITM Power’s materials as a commercial alternative to the existing membrane materials currently utilised in automotive fuel cell applications. In this context, this project is considered a first step in the process of justifying a more comprehensive onward development programme with OEM commercial partners.

Interesting. Thanks.
You can't tax deflation.
“Currency Induced Cost-Push Hyperinflation” vs “Demand-Pull (non-hyper) Inflation.”
The "no income --> no inflation"-thesis is as wrong as the "price control --> inflation control"-thesis.

This is one of the good news I've read. Anyway, this will be a win-win situation for everyone. Hope it won't end that way and I'm hoping also that it will continue to prosper. Thanks for sharing.

I'm not particularly well-learned on this kind of thing. Can anyone here dissect it and give it an appraisal ?

(Will do my own research too)


Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.

ITM Power driving ahead at the moment and Interims due this Thursday, 20th Jan.

ITM has been involved in a trial with the Royal Mail --
Article in The Guardian today looks very promising:--

'The nation's posties have used the greenest kinds of transport for generations, relying on their feet and their distinctive fleet of red bicycles to make their rounds.

Now their delivery vehicles, too, could go green. For the last few months, it has emerged, the Royal Mail has been secretly testing new zero-carbon vehicles on one of the remotest delivery rounds in Britain, in the Outer Hebrides.

Instead of diesel-belching vans, postal staff on the Isle of Lewis have been driving hydrogen-powered Ford Transits, converted at a total cost of £100,000. They fill up in Stornoway, at one of the UK's few hydrogen refuelling stations.'


Full article:--

Further Hydrogen On Site Trials/refuelling station trials with very major companies and organisations starts in March with BAA Stansted Airport. Others follow, such as Scottish and Southern Electicity, RAC, Vestas, Autoglass, DHL, May Gurney, Southampton City Council to name a few.

Many other projects in the pipeline --- should be a very high profile and active year for ITM.

Further major fuel cell advances for ITM Power:-

"A step change from the current state of the art has been achieved " -- " more than doubling the power density performance presently available on the market. "

High Power Density Fuel Cells Test Update

ITM Power (AIM: ITM), the energy storage and clean fuel company, is pleased to announce an early technical result from the initial phase of the high power density fuel cell membrane testing, an ambitious technology development project supported with GBP108,000 of research funding from the Carbon Trust.

ITM Power has demonstrated exceptionally high power densities by developing its proprietary hydrocarbon membrane materials for hydrogen/oxygen fuel cells. A step change from the current state of the art has been achieved, with what is believed to be the highest power density ever recorded for a PEM fuel cell (5.5W/cm2 and 10A/cm2) using pure oxygen. ITM Power has now successfully demonstrated the performance of the membrane in a hydrogen/air fuel cell developing over 2.1W/cm2 and 4A/cm2, more than doubling the power density performance presently available on the market.

While the Company's initial investigations focused on hydrogen and oxygen fed fuel cells, a commercial fuel cell system for deployment in a vehicle requires air to be used as the oxidant. This early result with air exceeds the ambitious target of 1.5W/cm2 which was defined as part of the Carbon Trust project and is further evidence of the potential for ITM Power's materials to offer a step change in performance.
----------------------------------

Major car manufacturers will be taking note for their hydrogen fuel cell cars of the future -- ITM's patented membrane has much lower cost and substantially higher performance.

Scientists have engineered a cheap, abundant alternative to the expensive platinum catalyst and coupled it with a light-absorbing electrode to make hydrogen fuel from sunlight and water.

The secret ingredient is molybdenum sulfide.

A team of researchers have engineered a cheap, abundant alternative to the expensive catalyst platinum and coupled it with a light-absorbing electrode to make hydrogen fuel from sunlight and water. The discovery was published in Nature Materials by theorist Jens Nørskov of the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University and a team of colleagues led by Ib Chorkendorff and Søren Dahl at the Technical University of Denmark. The team optimized a photo-electrochemical water splitting device by designing light absorbers made of silicon arranged in closely packed pillars, imaged above using a scanning electron microscope. After dotting the pillars with tiny clusters of the new catalyst and exposing the pillars to light, researchers watched as hydrogen gas bubbled up -- as quickly as if they'd used costly platinum.
