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
announcement for hydrogen
projects around the country last week. One company, United Technologies Corporation, is researching more durable and less costly seals and catalysts for transportation fuel cell
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.
