Product ManufacturingWhether you require Ballard to deliver low quantities of a fuel cell component prototype or mass produce fuel cell stacks, Ballard has the scale to reduce costs and speed your time to market. Leverage existing Ballard designs or manufacture to custom specifications using state-of-the-art prototyping and high volume equipment. 

Ballard’s manufacturing solutions include:

  • In-house catalyst coated films and catalyst coated membranes (roll to roll)
  • Bipolar plate assembly
  • MEA framing and liquid injection mold sealing
  • Fuel cell stacks and system assembly and factory acceptance testing
  • MEA, stack, and system assembly process design, transfer and training
  • Process scale-up support


Case Study: Catalyst Layer Development

SITUATION: Nisshinbo developed a highly promising non-precious metal catalyst for PEM fuel cell applications. The catalyst had to be designed into a PEM catalyst layer, and then tested for performance and stability in a fuel cell environment.

Through a technology solutions program, Ballard’s leading researchers, designed a catalyst layer, tested the catalyst and provided guidance and expertise to improve both the catalyst performance and stability.

 RESULTS: The program resulted in a 100x improvement to Nisshinbo’s catalyst stability. In addition, Nisshinbo generated intellectual property around catalyst design for non-precious metal catalysts.
