Plastics in Fuel Cells
Electromobility Arguments in Favor of a Future with Hydrogen
Electromobility, whether based on batteries or hydrogen fuel cells, permits zero-emission driving and the integration of the transport sector into an overall concept with a high share of renewable energy. Fuel cell technology will play a key role here, not only because of its long-range capability. However, the deciding factor will be the use of high-quality, but also cost-effective, materials and production processes to offer reliable, affordable products. This will place demands on plastics technology, in particular.
