Research and expansion programs conducted are as follow:
1. Policy & Economic Program
The program focuses on conducting research and constructs suitable administrative tool, national policy, legislation and resource management that are essential to develop the nation’s fuel cell industry. Economic model of fuel cell with hydrogen based is developed to advice government on policy incentives.
2. Electro-catalysis Program
The program focuses on exploration and intensification activity to achieve a more effective, efficient, simple and inexpensive electro catalyst and electro catalysis system. The application of these two (2) systems will be on a more constructive technology development of a Membrane Electrolyte Assembly (MEA).
3. Electrochemical Material Program
This program focuses on research and development activity to fabricate a more effective, efficient, simple and inexpensive electrochemical material; i.e. bipolar plate and polymer electrolyte membrane. The application of the electrochemical material will be on enhancement of technologies for; stacking, fuel cell bipolar plate and Membrane Electrolyte Assembly (MEA).
4. Photo-catalysis Program
This program focuses on research and development of heterogeneous photo catalyst to directly photo electrolysis water producing hydrogen and oxygen gas. This immobilized photo-catalyst acquires from photo electrode will be for the development of photo electrolysis technology to directly generate hydrogen from water by using solar energy.
5. Catalysis & Separation Program
This program focuses on research and development for heterogeneous catalyst, CO adsorbent and ceramic separation membrane for production of pure hydrogen from fossil fuel. The catalyst, CO adsorbent and ceramic membrane are for development of an enhanced fuel cell technology.
6. Application of Fuel Cell Program
This program focuses on research and development of innovative fuel cell application to extend the fuel cell utilization in various industrial sectors.
