Recently, there has been remarkable progress in the wider commercialization of devices and technologies that use low-temperature fuel cells and electrolyzers. These technologies are strongly linked to hydrogen and its processing – which will be featured at the efcf 2019. The EFCF conference topics span the wide range of challenges, from fundamental understanding of the relevant materials as well as of the kinetics and mass/heat transport processes in operating cells, all the way to...
