Here are some more details on two of the companies that are receiving grants as part of the Department of Energy's
$100 million funding
projects around the country last week. One company, United Technologies Corporation, is researching more durable and less costly seals and catalysts for transportation
stacks and received $8.4 million. Another, Nuvera Fuel Cells, Inc., is receiving $5 million for their work on proton exchange membrane fuel cell water management. Nuvera has developed a metallic bipolar plate design with a patented open flow field construction to move water around within the fuel cell, and claims this can improve performance and lengthen the cell's life cycle cost.
