QuantumSphere Direct Methanol Fuel Cell Applications Update

Driven by the need for more compact and lightweight power sources in portable electronics, the worldwide market for portable fuel cells is increasing rapidly ($80.1 million in 2008, expected to reach $4.4 billion by 2015).

The direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) membrane-electrode assembly (MEA), while a promising complement to Li-ion batteries, typically uses a dilute methanol liquid fuel source which adds size and weight. Furthermore, over 50% of the system cost can be attributed to platinum catalyst in the electrodes. These issues significantly diminish the $/Wh benefit of utilizing portable fuel cells.
