Key Materials in the Development of fuel Cell Industry in China

There is still a gap between the performance of core materials and international products.

The development of the material industry is still in its infancy, and the scale and quality need to be developed rapidly.

The core material of the membrane pole in the stack needs to have the ability of localization as soon as possible.

The cost of membrane electrode material accounts for 70-75% of the cost of stack material,

Catalyst, proton exchange membrane and gas diffusion layer (carbon fiber paper) account for 80-85% of the cost of electrode materials.

Foreign enterprises basically monopolize the market of three core materials.

The Strategy of promoting the Localization of Core Materials

1. Through the demand traction of product design, cooperate with domestic enterprises and research institutions to improve the performance level of core materials.

2. Through the application pull of the whole vehicle, the quality and capacity of domestic core materials can be improved as soon as possible.


Fuel cell technology is basically mature, and the automobile has entered the initial stage of industrial development with broad application prospects in the fields of energy and transportation.

After years of continuous development, SAIC fuel cell vehicles have the conditions for industrialization. The current battery products have been put into the market, and the PROME P390 fuel cell system of Jethydrogen Technology has also reached the world-class level, which is accelerating the quantity landing and market promotion and application of the products.

The rapid promotion of the key material industry is that the common problems in the development of China's fuel battery industry need to make a rapid breakthrough through the coordination of upstream and downstream, industry, university and research.
