            Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company and Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., have signed a unique three-way agreement to accelerate the commercialization of fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) technology. The goal of the collaboration is to jointly develop a common fuel cell electric vehicle system while reducing investment costs associated with the engineering of the technology. Each company will invest equally towards the project. The strategy to maximize design commonality, leverage volume and derive efficiencies through economies of scale will help to launch the world’s first affordable, mass-market FCEVs as early as 2017.

            • Use of the "Stretch-and-Fold" Technique for Nano-Metal-Forming of Electrochemical Electrodes and Reactors


              from Sean Barton Added 141 0 0

              Talk presented on May 9th, 2012 at the 221st Electrochemical Society (ECS) Meeting, in Seattle, Washington Abstract: The "stretch-and-fold" technique, which is similar to the "draw-and-restack" technique developed for the production of superconducting wire [1], is introduced and applied to the fabrication of bi-metal nano-structures that are selectively etched to produce porous metal structures of a chosen nano-geometry. Application of such structures to the fabrication of electrochemical electrodes and electrochemical reactors is considered. The fundamental physical processes that support the production of electrical current in a gas-diffusion electrode and fuel cell [2] are discussed and modeled. The model is compared with existing experimental data [3]. Current densities of nano-designed metallic gas-diffusion electrodes and bipolar plates are predicted. The "stretch-and-fold" technique begins with two congruent pieces of metal of an arbitrary chosen geometry. An example is shown in Fig. 1a. The pieces are assembled together to for a "billet" (Fig. 1b) which is then drawn down (Fig. 1c) and cut into lengths approximately equal to the length of the original billet (Fig. 1d). These pieces are then stacked into a tube (which may be later removed) (Fig. 1e) and drawn down as a single unit (Fig. 1f). The process is repeated several times resulting in an exponential decrease in the size and exponential increase in the multiplicity of the original chosen geometry (Fig. 1g-1i). The resulting bi-metal structure is then selectively etched to remove the more active metal leaving behind a nano-porous structure of the more noble metal consisting of potentially billions of nano-duplicates of the original chosen geometry. Figure 1. Illustration of the "stretch-and-fold" technique. The fundamental physics of the electrochemical processes occurring in a fuel cell is modeled by considering the diffusion of reactants and products into, out of, and through the electrolyte and reaction rates on the electrode surface as governed by electrode kinetics. The model is similar to existing physical models of the fuel cell [2] and is compared to available experimental data [3] showing good agreement. This physical model is used to motivate nano-geometries for gas-diffusion electrodes and bipolar plates. For example, it is found that the current density in a gas-diffusion electrode can be increased significantly by providing two distinct and coexisting levels of porosity, nano-porosity and micro-porosity. Surface tension effects tend to keep nano-porous regions saturated with electrolyte while micro-porous regions remain dry and filled with quickly diffusing reactant gases. Fabrication of these ideal structures is possible with the "stretch-and-fold" technique. It is also found that current densities can be further increased by more effectively supplying reactants to and removing heat, chemical products, and accumulated contamination from the electrochemically active sites in the fuel cell by means of a specially designed bipolar plate. The ideal geometry of this bipolar plate is found to be geometrically similar to the circulatory systems found in biological systems, consisting of branching reactant-supply and product-return pathways of varying sizes to minimize back pressure and overcome the shortcomings of random diffusion. These ideal structures can also be fabricated with the "stretch-and-fold" technique. See Figure 2. Figure 2. Conceptual sketch of a cross-sectional plane of the "arteries-and-veins" bipolar plate. White represents metal; red and blue represent open space (created by selective etching) for reactant supply and product/contamination/heat return respectively. The structure is mechanically self-connected by features above and below the plane of the drawing (not shown). Preliminary results of drawing and restacking bi-metal wires and selective etching, including optical and scanning electron micrographs of polished samples, are provided. Various techniques and challenges of fabrication are discussed. [1] ASM International, Metals Handbook, Ninth Edition, Volume 14, Forming and Forging, pp. 338-342 (1988) [2] J. O'M. Bockris and B. D.
