The CRESCENDO partnership brings together a strong industrial
and academic mix of world-leading centres of excellence
with internationally recognised expertise.
CRESCENDO Objectives
Develop highly active and long-term stable electrocatalysts
of non-PGM catalysts for the PEMFC cathode and
the re-design of the cathode catalyst layer.
Critical Raw material ElectrocatalystS replaCement
ENabling Designed pOst-2020 PEMFC

Environmental Benefits
Fuel cell and hydrogen based technologies can contribute towards
significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions and
therefore assisting in combating the effects of climate change.
Non-PGM catalysts
The ideal industrial goal is to manufacture PEMFC stacks for
transport application with Non-PGM catalysts, and with performance
and durability comparable to the targets defined for Pt.

EU emblem flag yellow highFCH JU logoCRESCENDO is a European project involving two large industrial partners, an SME, and five universities / research institutes in an ambitious proposal that will require critical mass, pooled complementary skills and competences to reach its goals.

Starting date: 1st January 2018 - Duration: 45 months - Coordinator: CNRS, France


CRESCENDO has organised EFCD2019, the 2nd international conference Electrolysis and Fuel Cell Discussions - Towards Catalysts Free of Critical Raw Materials for Fuel Cells and Electrolysers, La Grande Motte, France, 15th-18th September 2019.
