MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Donaldson Company has signed on with a major Japanese auto manufacturer to work together towards developing new fuel cell technology.
The new contract is aimed at speeding up the commercialization of fuel cell powered automobiles, using fuel cell filtration.
“Fuel cell developers, including automobile manufacturers, are recognizing the need for intake air – or cathode-side filtration to ensure fuel cell reliability and performance,” says Richard Canepa, director of the Donaldson FC3 business unit.
“In all corners of the world, ambient air contains contaminants that can compromise the fuel cell system durability, life and performance. By incorporating current state of the art proprietary FC3 technologies, we are making fuel cell specific products that are cost effective and available today.”
This latest partnership is expected to help the company further develop its fuel cell technology.
