For full market implementation of PEM fuel cells to become a reality, two main limiting technical issues must be overcome-cost and durability. This cutting-edge volume directly addresses the state-of-the-art advances in durability within every fuel cell stack component. Designed to be relevant to the professional community in addition to researchers, this book will serve as a valuable reference featuring topics covered nowhere else and a one-stop-shop to create a solid platform for understanding this important area of development. The reference covers aspects of durability in the entire fuel cell stack. Each chapter also includes vision of pathways forward and an explanation of the tools needed to continue along the path toward commercialization.
