Non-Platinum Electrocatalysts Workshop
The U.S. Department of Energy sponsored the Non-Platinum Electrocatalysts Workshop in New Orleans, Louisiana, March 21-22, 2003. Attendees included researchers, government officials, and industry members. The purpose of the workshop was to review the current status of electrocatalysts for PEM fuel cells, review the impact of platinum cost and availability on PEM fuel cell commercialization, identify potential non-platinum electrocatalysts, develop a strategy to explore the potential development of new, non-platinum electrocatalysts for PEM fuel cell applications. The presentations from the Non-Platinum Electrocatalysts Workshop are available as Adobe Acrobat PDFs. Download Adobe Reader.
