What's NEXT survey event

Join us for some team-building fun and take the What’s NEXT survey. Public computers will be available for survey use at the events. Your confidential responses will help shape the building blocks of our organization. Volunteers will be available to answer any questions you may have about the survey.

Cookies will be served at the events.

For each survey completed, $1 will be donated to Argonne Combined Appeal from the lab director and deputy lab directors.

New catalyst may hasten commercialization of fuel cell vehiclesAugust 25, 2015

Supported by DOE’s Fuel Cell Technologies Office, scientists at Argonne have developed a new fuel cell catalyst using earthly abundant materials with performance that is comparable to platinum in laboratory tests. If commercially viable, the new catalyst could replace platinum in electric cars powered by fuel cells instead of batteries, which would greatly extend the range of electric vehicles and eliminate the need for recharging.
