Funded projects

Together with research and industry partners, we develop innovative components for fuel cells based on our own coating technology in funded and non-funded projects.

Here is an overview of our current and completed projects:

Ongoing projects


R2Stack (BMWK 2023-2025, FK: 03EN5031A): Process and equipment development for high-rate, roll-based CCM and MEA production including assembly for the manufacture of fuel cells.
