EFCD2019 hosted at La Grande-Mott, France September 15-19, 2019

September 9, 2019

Pajarito Powder Chief Scientist Alexey Serov will be presenting an invited talk on PGM-free materials (those without Platinum Group Metals) at EFCD2019 (Electrolysis and Fuel Cell Discussions 2019), September 15-18, 2019.

Presenting on the topic of PGM-free fuel cell catalysts, Dr. Serov will expand on the extensive body of electrocatalysts he has created and for this particular event, the future of electrocatalysts without precious metals. EFCD is dedicated to catalysts utilizing a minimum amount of critical raw materials and in particular Platinum Group Metals (PGM). This conference represents an opportunity to present recent results in the field and to discuss the scientific and technological challenges on the path towards “zero” platinum. Invited lectures, oral and poster presentations will provide an international perspective of the most recent research activities in this fast-moving area.

Dr. Serov stated, “It is a great honor to be an invited speaker at EFCD 2019. I deeply appreciate the recognition from the organizers to be asked to present development of PGM-free Oxygen Reduction Reaction catalysts from the very important point of view of a manufacturing company [Pajarito Powder] commercializing these products.”

A world leader in the commercial production of PGM-free catalysts, as well as low-PGM catalysts and catalyst support materials, Pajarito Powder has provided product to commercial and academic customers in Europe, Asia, North America, South America and Africa.
