Utilizing SLA 3D printing, the research team developed a new approach to fuel cell production, which yielded a direct increase in capacity over those conventionally used to generate power. The “new generation” of green energy cells, which emit no environmentally-harmful gasses, could now be used in end-use electricity generation applications, or to create enhanced energy storage devices. 

“Among others, electroceramic-based energy devices like solid oxide fuel and electrolysis cells are promising candidates to benefit from using 3D printing to develop innovative concepts that overcome shape limitations of currently existing manufacturing techniques,” stated the research team.
