U.K.’s AFC Energy Partners With Industrie De Nora for Fuel Cells

AFC Energy Plc, a U.K. fuel cell maker, said it signed a joint-development agreement with Italy’s Industrie De Nora SpA, a maker of electrodes and chemicals.

The companies will collaborate on technological improvements to AFC’s fuel cells and work to accelerate commercial-scale production, according to a statement on Friday. The companies also intend to combine their technologies to create new products for the automotive industry.

“The relationship and the proposed program for collaboration will significantly build on the recent successes of AFC Energy and will no doubt materially de-risk and speed up AFC Energy’s path to commercialization,” said Adam Bond, AFC Energy’s chief executive officer.
