HYPRAEL at the International Thermal Spray Conference (ITSC) 2024

The HYPRAEL project proudly participated in the recent International Thermal Spray Conference and Exposition (ITSC) held in Milan, Italy, from April 29th to May 1st, 2024. ITSC is a premier event for the thermal spraying community, attracting leading researchers and industry professionals from around the world.

Fraunhofer IWS, a key partner in the HYPRAEL project, presented its ongoing research and advancements related to Atmospheric Plasma Spraying (APS) technology for Solid Electrolyte Assemblies (SEAs) within the HYPRAEL project.


This innovative approach has the potential to revolutionize the field of hydrogen fuel cells by offering a more efficient and cost-effective method for producing SEAs, a critical component in fuel cell technology.

The HYPRAEL project team showcased their work at the Fraunhofer IWS booth, engaging with attendees and sparking discussions about the potential of APS-coated SEAs for hydrogen fuel cell applications.

The presentation generated significant interest from the specialized hydrogen audience, highlighting the growing importance of thermal spraying technologies in the development of next-generation fuel cells.

While the ITSC conference has concluded, the HYPRAEL project continues its groundbreaking research. We are committed to advancing APS technology for SEAs and contributing to a more sustainable future powered by hydrogen.
