Ilika signs fuel-cell catalyst scale-up deal with ITRI

Ilika, a cleantech-materials discovery company, has signed an agreement with the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), a Taiwanese R&D organisation, to scale up and commercialise next-generation fuel-cell catalysts.

Under the agreement, the parties aim to have samples available to potential customers in approximately 18 months.

ITRI will meet the cost of this scale-up work and catalyst material should be available for large-scale supply during the following 12 months.

The parties have also agreed to co-operate in the commercialisation and marketing of the catalyst.
