High Power Density Rechargeable Fuel Cell

NPL Associates, Inc. pioneered the NaBH4/H2O2 fuel cell technology in the United States.

This type of fuel cell offers the following distinct advantages:

Background:

NPL Associates, under a DARPA SBIR contract, has demonstrated for the first time the feasibility and excellent performance of peroxide-based fuel cells. NPL has thereafter been awarded a DARPA Phase-II grant to continue on the regenerative version of this technology.

More recently, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), jointly with subcontractors NPL, CU Aerospace and two NASA centers (JPL and GRC), was awarded a NASA BAA grant to further develop the technology related to NaBH4/H2O2 fuel cells
