Accurate Detection of Impurities in Hydrogen Fuel at Lower Cost

Technology available for licensing: Two alternative strategies for detecting impurities in the hydrogen used in fuel cells. Both yield highly accurate results and use simpler, less costly equipment.

  • Facilitates the analysis of trace impurities in high-pressure hydrogen streams
  • Replaces costly analytical equipment with inexpensive, easy-to-operate, portable sensor devices
