Fuel Cells

Fuel cells are electrochemical devices that use chemical energy from hydrogen or other fuel sources to cleanly and efficiently produce electricity. They have a wide range of applications including transportation, industrial, commercial, residential, and long-term energy grid storage. As the energy market further prioritizes lower emission and cleaner systems, conventional fossil-based combustion technologies far underperform outputs as compared to fuel cells. Because fuel cells can use hydrogen as the starting energy input, they can operate at higher efficiencies, emit zero emissions, produce no air pollutants, and function rather silently due to the reduced number of moving internal parts.

To assist the fuel cells in operating at superior levels, TreadStone has innovated and patented metal coating technologies that when used, reduce the cost of energy production, and improve the performance of energy conversion and storage. By way of these specialty coatings, less amount material is used in the process, lowering the contact resistance, and improving the durability of energy production.


As the global energy economy shifts more to cleaner energy, the demand for unconventional sources of energy such as fuel cells has increased drastically and is predicted to continue to increase. In fact, the global fuel cell market size is predicted to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 23.2% from 2020 to 2028. The need for cost-effective metal coatings that improve overall energy production will be key to helping more industries switch to unconventional energy sources. All three of TreadStone's patented coating technologies can be used in different fuel cell applications, and the most suitable technology will be recommended based on application intent.
