Some time ago (LINK) I found a very interesting article about the development of metal supported cells that will be actually produced and used to help developing countries. After spending many years on research of metal supported cells (and being still involved), I have to say I am happy to see that. Names of people involved I know from the literature, so it proves that science can be transferred from the lab to the market if right people are involved. The application area is maybe somewhat strange or niche, but definitely it is a huge success and I hope the company will manage to grow.
I am a researcher working in materials science, mainly with ceramic materials but also with metalic alloys. I focus on deposition techniques (electrophoretic, electrolytic, spray-pyrolysis) and a few different applications (fuel cells, electrolysis).
