Fuel cells have become a viable eco-friendly power source, and advancements in the technology continue to be made. Today, fuel cells are already used for primary and backup power for commercial, industrial, and residential buildings. However, fuel cells are also used to power a variety of vehicles, including forklifts, cars, buses, boats, motorcycles, and submarines. As fuel cell technology improves, the importance of using high-purity graphite in fuel cells’ bipolar plates, gas diffusion layers, and catalysts is becoming increasingly evident.
As the electric vehicle (EV) industry grows, driving range has proven to be a major challenge. Fuel cells can be used in both stationary and mobile applications, although the latter requires access to a refuelling station. However, standard electric vehicles are still much more limited by their batteries.
