Description

     Fuel cell technology is one of the best methods to generate the green energy that can be used in automobiles to reduce the air pollution. It is the emerging technology to replace the conventional IC engines with fuel cells and to develop Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV). Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel cell is an electrochemical device that produces electrical energy using hydrogen and oxygen with zero pollution.     

     Only very few institutions in India have the Fuel cell test station facility and Nandha Engineering College is one among them. Two Patents have been filed and more than 10 research publications have been made in peer reviewed journals using this facility. In addition UG/PG students and Ph.D research scholars are also actively doing project works using this emerging technology.
