We provide the technology for PEM fuel cells with improved power density

Our novel radiation grafting method enables the tuning of gas diffusion layers, by introducing local hydrophilic regions in the structure, facilitating advanced water and gas management.

Proven technology

Several peer-reviewed scientific papers have been published on our innovation and have demonstrated an increase in achievable PEM fuel cell power density of 10-30%.

Facile integration

By extensive collaboration with the most innovative fuel cell manufacturers, we develop a robust product that complies with all industry standards.

Scalable process

A strategic partnership with the

most advanced gas diffusion layer manufacturer in the field will scale our technology to a 500,000 systems/year capacity.
