Nissan Introduces Next-Generation Fuel Cell Stack
Getting to the technical part of the story, we have to tell you the main modifications: the Membrane Electrode Assembly and the separator flow path have been modified and thus the density of the Fuel Cell Stack is now 2.5-times greater that that of the 2005 model. Nissan claims that it offers a world-record setting 2.5 kW per liter.
“Moulding the supporting frame of the MEA integrally with the MEA enabled stable, single-row lamination of the Fuel Cell, thereby significantly reducing its overall size by more than half compared to conventional models. Additionally, compared with the 2005 model, both the usage of platinum and parts variation has been reduced to one quarter, thereby reducing cost of the Next Generation Fuel Cell Stack to one-sixth of the 2005 model,” a company statement reads, giving us more details.
