SuperREACT

Teer Coatings Ltd. (TCL) is pleased to announce their involvement in this new project which went live in December 2012.

SuperREACT, led by TCL, builds on previous Technology Programme breakthrough research which has established the feasibility of elemental and alloy size-selected nanocluster technology. The objectives are truly ambitious: transforming a state-of-the-art research apparatus into a true manufacturing tool, moving from micro-g/day to g/day capability, with the ultimate potential to achieve kg quantities of nanoclusters, opening up manufacturing opportunities in catalytic, fine chemical, electronic/ photonic, bio-medicine, anti-microbials, etc. Clusterbeam condensation of nano-clusters is inherently “clean” &, using multiple elemental sources, flexible in terms of cluster composition & structure. The novel matrix assembly-clusterisation processing will enable continuous production of elemental, alloy & core-shell structures. The University of Birmingham is contributing its new IPR while TCL & Johnson Matthey bring their expertise in high value manufacturing and market knowledge.

Project partners:

  • Johnson Matthey plc
  • The University of Birmingham

Stable and Low Cost Manufactured Bipolar Plates for PEM Fuel Cells (STAMPEM)

Teer Coatings Ltd. (TCL) is pleased to announce their involvement in this new project which went live in July 2012.

The European Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan has identified fuel cells and hydrogen among the technologies needed for Europe to meet the energy efficiency targets for 2020 as well as to realise the long-term vision for 2050 towards decarbonisation. Correspondingly, the FCH JU program, and more specifically the Application Area “Transportation & Refuelling Infrastructure”, aims to pave the road towards the market introduction of fuel cell vehicles.

The concept of STAMPEM is to combine world leading industrial actors with research institutions with the required generic competence capable of providing breakthrough solutions with respect to a new generation coating for low cost metallic bipolar plates (BPPs). By involving an end user of the BPPs developed in the STAMPEM project, the results will be thoroughly verified under realistic operating conditions in a PEMFC stack.

The main objective of STAMPEM is to develop durable coatings materials for metal BPPs, that can be mass produced for less than 2.5 € /kW of rated stack power at futureproduction volumes of 500 000 pieces annually. Properties after extrapolated 10 000 hours from accelerated single cell testing shall still be within the AIP specifications. The main parameters are contact resistance (< 25 mohm cm2) and corrosion resistance (< 10 μA/cm2).

Project partners:

  • Stiftelsen SINTEF, Norway
  • ElringKlinger AG, Germany
  • Fraunhofer Gesellschaft zur Förderung der angewandten Forschung e.V, Germany
  • The University of Birmingham, UK
  • Fronius International GmbH, Austria

Novel Materials and System Designs for Low Cost, Efficient and Durable PEM Electrolysers (NOVEL)

Teer Coatings Ltd. (TCL) is pleased to announce their involvement in this new project which went live in September 2012.

The main objective of NOVEL is to develop and demonstrate an efficient and durable PEM electrolyser to produce hydrogen from water, with innovative materials, stack and system design. Electrolysers are in ever increasing demand, for example to convert the variable output of renewable energy sources, including photovolataics and wind power, into a readily transportable and storable fuel, such as hydrogen, which can, for example, be injected into the existing natural gas grid.

By developing new membrane, catalyst materials and new coatings for bipolar plates and current collectors in the novel stack and system design, the project has set performance targets at : Efficiency >75% (LHV); stack cost < €5,000 / Nm3h-1 and Life time >40,000 h.

Project partners:

  • SINTEF, Norway
  • CEA (Commissariat à l’énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives), France
  • Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), Switzerland
  • Helion SAS, France
  • Fraunhofer ISE, Germany
  • Johnson Matthey Fuel Cells Ltd, UK
  • Beneq Oy, Finland
