DOE Project Aims to Transform Fuel Cells

The key to sustainable alternative energy sources such as biofuels, hydrogen, synthetic hydrocarbons, and fuel cells is the catalytic processes that drive the energy conversion pathways. Now Ashwin Ramasubramaniam, a faculty member in the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, has received a five-year, $750,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to study electocatalysts in direct methanol fuels cells and proton exchange membrane hydrogen fuel cells and then suggest revolutionary ways to improve them.
