The Fuel Cell Technologies Office will hold a public webinar titled "Development of Real-Time Characterization Tools and Associated Efforts to Assist Membrane Electrode Assembly Manufacturing Scale-Up" on Wednesday, August 22, at 12 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. In this webinar, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will present an overview of early-stage R&D related to manufacturing of fuel cell membrane electrode assembly (MEA) materials. Topics will include (1) an overview of the manufacturing context and challenges for MEA materials, (2) a detailed presentation of work to develop real-time in-line characterization techniques, (3) an overview of specialized in situ diagnostics developed to understand how defects in MEA materials affect cell performance and lifetime, and (4) an overview of efforts to understand the foundational relationships between electrode materials (inks and coated layers), processing methods, and performance. The webinar will be recorded and made available online, and includes a 15-minute Q&A portion.
