Recent developments in polymer electrolyte membrane-based fuel cells (PEMFC) technology were discussed. This technology is pollution-free and converts hydrogen fuel into electricity. Advantages of PEMFC include high power density, reduced corrosion, and fewer electrolyte management problems when compared to liquid electrolytes. New membranes are required with the characteristics properties of high temperature resistivity with improved CO tolerance, high longevity, heat rejection, and low cost.
