Proprietary High-Quality Nano-Nickel/Cobalt Alloy a Replacement Solution for Platinum Electrode Market
QuantumSphere, Inc. has announced (QSI- nano Ni/Co alloy) as a clear replacement solution for the platinum electrode market. Independent validation, provided by DoppStein Enterprises, Inc. (DSE) regarding this development, poses a serious issue for platinum suppliers in the platinum group metal catalyst market, as QSI- nano Ni/Co alloy will alleviate dependency on platinum as the main catalytic material in a variety of battery and fuel cell applications– while presenting tremendous business and cost savings advantages for companies.
A shift from finely divided platinum to QSI- nano Ni/Co alloy results in a reduction in the cost of fuel cell and battery catalysts by approximately 50%, while achieving up to 90% of pure platinum performance, based on current prices. Conversely, a 90% cost savings will result in a remarkable 73% performance relative to pure platinum.

By adopting our product, QuantumSphere enables companies to provide new product offerings in the marketplace and increase their revenue, said Kevin Maloney, CEO, QuantumSphere, Inc. For example, we have spoken with many firms that are frustrated by the fact that products using small fuel cells or batteries face a problem– up to 40% of the total product cost is derived from the expense of the catalyst. By using our QSI- nano Ni/Co alloy product, QuantumSphere can reduce the total device cost significantly. This opens up an exciting range of new business opportunities for companies that want to offer new products to customers but were previously hindered by the cost that platinum imposed on the OEM and final product price. Additionally, the method of making these materials is highly scalable and fully automated. QSI- nano Ni/Co alloy will liberate companies from their dependence on platinum, lower the cost of production and increase profit margins, enabling firms to offer new products at a price point that will be accepted in the market.
