Hyundai, Kia and Gore for Electrolytic Polymer Membrane for Fuel Cell January 08, 2024 0

Hyundai Group of Companies believes in hydrogen technology and continues to invest in development Fuel Cell Systems for use in certain applications including commercial vehicles. Now Hyundai and Kia have announced that they have signed a new agreement. collaboration with Gore for joint development electrolytic polymer membranes (PEMs) for hydrogen fuel cell systems.


Working together, these companies will develop an advanced, next-generation fuel cell system for commercial vehicles that improves durability and performance. Two car manufacturers explain:

A hydrogen fuel cell uses an electrolyte membrane to conduct protons between two electrodes, blocking direct coupling of incoming hydrogen and oxygen, facilitating selective conduction of protons and in turn generating electrical current to power the vehicle. PEM technology plays a critical role in determining the performance and longevity of a fuel cell system.

Gore will, in particular, contribute its expertise in PEM technology, catalytically coated membranes and MEA (membrane electrode assembly). Chang Hwan Kimhead of battery development and hydrogen and fuel cell development at Hyundai and Kia, commented:

We are entering the next chapter of our partnership with Gore. Leveraging 15 years of collaboration, we will master advanced fuel cell technologies and lead the hydrogen electric vehicle market, accelerating progress towards a sustainable future.
