Infinity Fuel Cell and Hydrogen, Inc., a global leader in hydrogen fuel cells and electrolyzers for aerospace applications, signed a contract add-on with NASA’s Game Changing Development program and NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio.
The contract is for continued risk reduction activities and testing of Infinity’s zero-gravity, air-independent fuel cells being developed for use in a lunar regenerative fuel cell system.
The NASA funding will be dedicated to continued risk reduction activities and testing of Infinity’s zero-gravity, air-independent fuel cells being developed expressly for use in a lunar regenerative fuel cell system. The goal is to advance technologies that could one day be designed to power an exploration base camp through the complete darkness of the 14-day lunar night.
“Infinity has been developing our patented, air-independent fuel cell technology, with NASA’s support for over 15 years. This program represents a major step toward mission deployment of these systems,” said Bill Smith, Infinity’s CEO and founder.
Infinity is also developing electrolysis technologies that can generate hydrogen and oxygen directly at 2000 psi and above, which are now transitioning from prototypes to production.
