NexTech Materials Awarded ATP Project

The U.S. Commerce Department's Advanced Technology Program (ATP) has announced an award to NexTech Materials, Ltd. for its High-Power-Density Solid Oxide Fuel Cells for Aerospace Applications project. This ATP project concerns the development of a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) architecture and manufacturing process that offers unparalleled power density, improved manufacturability, better mechanical integrity and the ability to use liquid hydrocarbon fuels. The proposed concept represents an order of magnitude improvement over current fuel cell development efforts that are focused on land-based, mass-market commercial opportunities. The NASA Glenn Research Center will support the project in the areas of materials development, cell/stack fabrication and single-cell testing. SOFCo-EFS Holdings LLC will support the project with testing of single cells and stacks under application-specific conditions. The total cost of this project is $2.5 million; ATP will provide up to $2 million.
