WSU researchers determine key improvement for fuel cells
Pullman WA (SPX) Jul 19, 2016
Washington State University researchers have determined a key step in improving solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs), a promising clean energy technology that has struggled to gain wide acceptance in the marketplace. The researchers determined a way to improve one of the primary failure points for the fuel cell, overcoming key issues that have hindered its acceptance. Their work is featured on the cover of the latest issue of Journal of Physical Chemistry C. Fuel cells offer a clean and highly eff ... read more
