Science Researcher Update: Spotlight on Meetings, Conferences, and Events

3rd International Workshop on Degradation Issues in Fuel Cells & Electrolysers

Posted on Jul 15, 2015 1:40:19 PM

Symposium - Greece
This event is jointly organized by JRC and Birmingham University with support from FCH-JU funded projects (IMPALA, IMPACT & SecondAct) and partner organisations (CNR-ITAE, CEA, DLR, ENEA, ITM & ZSW). It is the 3rd in a series of scientific workshop addressing degradation issues in electrochemical energy technologies such as fuel cells and electrolysers.
This international workshop aims at:
• Understanding fundamental degradation mechanisms, as well as identifying measures to increase fuel cell lifetime, robustness and reliability.
• Identifying test procedures, characterization tools & test criteria to address degradation from the fuel cell component the MEA (membrane electrode assembly) to the system level both applicable for fuel cell and electrolysis.
• Providing a model based approach to describe degradation phenomena Identifying future R&D (research & development) activities for further understanding, mitigating and reducing degradation phenomena Identifying methodologies for evaluation of degradation and harmonisation of test procedures.
The workshop will be comprised of plenary and parallel sessions with oral presentations, which will include state of the art reviews on degradation issues on fuel cells such as Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cell (PEFC); Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) and in electrolysis mode, Polymer Electrolyte Membrane Water Electrolysis Cell (PEMWEC) and Solid Oxide Electrolysis Cell (SOEC). Oral presentations at the workshop are by invitation only from the committee. A selection of international experts will chair and guide the sessions. Additionally, a poster exhibition will be organised offering the opportunity to the participants, to present their research work on degradation issues. A panel discussion session will close the workshop, and will suggest future directions in fuel cell degradation research.
It should be attended by at Developers, Researchers and Business managers in academia and industry.
