RIT secures fuel cell research grant

Rochester Business Journal
July 28, 2014

Rochester Institute of Technology has received a nearly $100,000 grant for fuel cell research that will aid in the final phase for prototype residential power system.

The Golisano Institute of Sustainability received the grant through the Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards. The $98,888 in NIST funding will build on work conducted by Thomas Trabold, associate professor at GIS, and a team of researchers at the institute, RIT officials noted.

The technology being developed can eventually replace systems based on hydrocarbon combustion, Trabold said.

“Thanks to this funding, we’ll be able to build upon our earlier work to use this final stage to develop a prototype,” Trabold said. “In addition to hardware design, we’ll be integrating a propane fuel reformer and fuel cell stack before the assembly of a fuel cell-based system.”
