Surface protonics for oxide-based electrochemical energy devices (SUPROX)

About the Project

The SUPROX project aims to develop the next generation fuel-flexible electrochemical cells based on surface protonic conduction in the adsorbed water layer on nanoporous ceramics. Surface protonics enable cheap and robust solid-liquid nanocomposites with high proton conductivity and chemical stability.The oxide-based nanocomposites may also enable a simpler (single chamber) and more fuel-flexible electrochemical cell which can convert cheaper low-concentration fuel mixtures (e.g. dilute biogas) into electricity in a cost-efficient manner.



The project is funded by Research Council of Norway, with support of ENERGIX program, project number  280868.
