Warsaw University of Technology


Main activities on fuel cells, electrolysers and hydrogen

Main competences and lines of research

  • Manufacturing and development of MCFC components (electrodes, matrix and electrolyte)
  • Electrochemical characterization of fuel cell(s)/electrolyser cells and stacks (mainly molten carbonate fuel cell(s))
  • Fuel cells modelling and system optimization. Models are built based on own-approach
