Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells & Electrolyzers 22 Poster Competition Winners

Congratulations to Seiji Ichikawa, Daichi Yasufuku, Ryosuke Nishiizumi, and Weijie Cao

Dr. Lyons congratulates Seiji Ichikawa, 1st place winner.

The Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells & Electrolyzers 22 (PEFC&E 22) symposium at the 242nd ECS Meeting hosted its annual student poster competition on October 10, 2022. Some 30 students submitted posters to the competition. Dr. James (Jim) Fenton led the group of senior fuel cell and electrolysis researchers, which judged the posters for technical content and visual presentation.

ECS and PEFC&E 22 thank the Office of Naval Research, the competition’s funder. A total of USD $3,000 was awarded for four prizes. Join Dr. Karen Swider Lyons, PEFC&E 22 symposium chair, in congratulating the winners!

I01 Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells & Electrolyzers Symposium

The international PEFC&E symposium is devoted to all aspects of research, development, and engineering of polymer electrolyte fuel cells and electrolyzers, as well as low-temperature direct-fuel cells using either anion or cation exchange membranes. The international community working on these technologies comes together, enabling effective interactions between research and engineering communities. The symposium proceedings are published in ECS Transactions Volume 109, Issue 9 and available through the ECS online store.
