German car manufacturer Daimler has cut the platinum loading of its new fuel cell Mercedes to catalytic converter level. “We reduced the amount of platinum by 90%, which provides a significant cost reduction. Our fuel cell is not much above the platinum loading of a catalytic converter on a conventional car,” Daimler fuel cell director Professor Dr Christian Mohrdieck has told cH2ange, an organisation promoting a global switch to the hydrogen economy to mitigate climate change.
