Addressing the future
Transportation generates 1/3 of all greenhouse gas emissions.
Fuel cells, together with batteries, can bring this number down to 0.
The core of the fuel cell that makes everything possible is the catalyst – which contains scarce and expensive platinum.
Platinum makes today’s fuel cells expensive even under the economies of scale.
Platinum will be the biggest ‘migraine’ for fuel cell producers and the main bottle-neck for this technology to scale massively.
Our product is
ReCatalyst reduces required platinum in the catalyst by 50% while improving both the efficiency and durability at the same time.
