Iron-platinum catalyst keeps fuel cells clean, even in cold weather

Iron-platinum catalyst keeps fuel cells clean, even in cold weather

Batteries are currently outpacing fuel cells in the technological race to power the electric vehicle. Lithium batteries keep getting cheaper, while fuel cells remain hampered by pricey, short-lived platinum catalysts. Researchers suggest that adding a bit more platinum—albeit in a novel form—could help fuel cell cars catch up.
