Enabling Renewable Energy: Green Fuel for Clean Cars


Date: Wednesday, April 12, 2017
Time: 12-2:45 p.m
Location: Toronto Plaza Hotel
Cost: $30


Join us for lunch and learn more about green fuels for clean cars. Professor Aimy Bazylak (MIE) will discuss her team’s techniques for analyzing the three-dimensional structure of the proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell, electrolyzer gas diffusion layers (GDL) and microporous layers (MPL). Professor Bazylak will also discuss how her team combines experimental and numerical approaches to inform the design of next-generation porous materials for advanced performance.
