Abstract

The scope of MAMA-MEA is to develop an innovative additive-layer deposition process that integrates all the main CCM (Catalyst Coated Membrane) components within a single, continuous roll-to-roll production line. This project is focused on PEMFC Polymer Electrolyte Membrane Fuel Cell) industry. Its mission is to foster an increase of the manufacturing rate up to 10 times faster than that currently achieved by state-ofthe-art processes. The current manufacturing methods will not be able to meet CCM demand over the next 10 years, therefore, new strategies needs be sought, explored and translated into high volume production lines to augment the capacity and follow the expected trend. The whole effort also has the potential to improve material utilisation and manufacturing costs. Preliminary one-off prototypes have already established the feasibility of the proposed approach and patent applications have been filed. The engineering design of an ALM sealed CCM production line will be provided.
