January 31, 2017, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA – Pajarito Powder announced today that it had completed the 100th shipment of its Engineered Carbon Supports (ECS) and precious-metal-free (PMF) catalyst materials to customers. This marks a significant milestone for Pajarito Powder, the leader in providing ECS and PMF catalysts for the fuel cell industry for Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) and other fuel cell applications.
“We are excited to achieve this important threshold in our sales and manufacturing,” said Thomas J. Stephenson, Chairman and CEO of Pajarito Powder. “Our exceptional teams in business development and production have been working hard to deliver product that can have a real impact on the performance and cost of fuel cells, and in particular Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles. As we build upon an exceptional 2016, this represents a great start to 2017. We look forward to more significant achievements in the months to come.”
Based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, Pajarito Powder LLC manufactures advanced Engineered Carbon Supports (ECS) for Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles – the industry-recognized long-term replacement to the internal combustion engine in passenger cars and light-duty trucks – and precious-metal-free catalysts for other fuel cell applications.
Pajarito Powder’s products provide advances in performance at dramatically lower costs, as well as a path to precious-metal-free components for fuel cells and electrolyzers in the future. Pajarito Powder’s PHC-3000 Engineered Carbon Supports provide a critical component allowing automakers to achieve the performance and cost targets necessary to realize the transformation to emissions-free vehicles. PHC-3000 enables high specific platinum catalyst activity in combination with superior resistance to carbon corrosion, ideal for demanding applications such as automotive fuel cells. Pajarito Powder’s ECS and catalyst products are inexpensive to produce and can be readily scaled for high-volume manufacturing, conditions ultimately necessary for cost-effective, widespread fuel cell adoption.
