Researchers at the Macromodules and Interfaces Institute at Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech's School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering are working on a Department of Energy-funded project to develop more effective membrane materials for fuel cells.

Professor Carson Meredith noted that the feasibility of proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells depends on new membranes that are more durable, less expensive and can effectively operate in low humidity.

Currently, the research team has tackled the low humidity problem with a polymer-based material while further research is focused on membrane materials that can be more easily manufactured.
