SUSTAINCELL - Durable and Sustainable component supply chain for high performance fuel cells and electrolysers

The SUSTAINCELL project aims at supporting the European industry in the development of the next generation electrolyser and fuel cell technologies (both low and high temperature) by developing a sustainable European supply chain of materials, components and cells, significantly less reliant on critical raw materials (CRM), with lower environmental footprint and costs, and higher performance and durability than existing technologies.

This will rely on scientific breakthrough innovations with the development of eco-design guidelines and environmentally friendly manufacturing routes applied for the production of new CRM-lean and/or CRM-free materials and architectures designed for maximising functionalities and durability, while decreasing CRM content per unit cell. The new flexible and scalable processing routes will exhibit higher productivity, as well as reduced utilities consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

Project duration: 2023 - 2028
Total budget: 10 M €
Funding source: Funded by the European Union
