Mao Zongqiang: R&D of graphite plate cell stack technology

Postdoctoralfellow at Bradford University, UK, Bachelor of Engineering Chemistry, TsinghuaUniversity.

Currently,Mao serves as a professor at the Institute of Nuclear and New Energy Technologyof Tsinghua University, an expert in hydrogen energy education at theInternational Partnership for Hydrogen and Fuel Cellsin the Economy (IPHE), vice chairman of the InternationalAssociation for Hydrogen Energy (IAHE), and vice chairman of theISO Committee on Hydrogen Energy Standards (ISO/TC197).

Mao’searlier research included hydrogen nanocarbon storage, new hydrogen productionmethods, hydrogen energy economy and safety, hydrogen energy standards andother topics related to hydrogen energy. He has previously served as ChiefScientist on the first national 973 hydrogen energy project in China, vicechairman of China Renewable Energy Society, director of the ProfessionalCommittee of Hydrogen Energy of China Renewable Energy Society, deputy directorof the National Hydrogen Energy Standards Technical Committee, advisor of theProfessional Committee of Fuel Cell of the China Energy Research Society, guesteditor on Int. J Hydrogen Energy, etc.

Fan Qinbai: R&D of molded graphiteand metal plate cell stack technology

Bachelorof Analytical Chemistry from Nanjing University, Master of Electrochemistryfrom Shanghai University, Ph.D. in Surface Chemistry from Cleveland StateUniversity, Postdoctoral in Chemical Engineering from Illinois Institute ofTechnology. Fan is currently the dean of SINOMEC Hydrogen Energy Academy(Shanghai) and the CEO of SINOHEC.

Fanhas started his research into electrochemistry and fuel cells in 1984. Hisformer positions include: director of fuel cell and hydrogen energy technologyresearch and development at the Institute of Gas Technology (IGT) in the U.S.,and director of new product development for ITW construction equipment in theU.S.

Inaddition, Fan is also the author of 65 published papers and owns 33 technicalinvention patents in the United States. He has 7 years of experience in AB2,AB5 metal material for hydrogen storage and high surface carbon powder hydrogenstorage, as well as 6 years of experience in solar thermal chemical hydrogenproduction. Fan has undertaken more than 49 projects, with a total of more than30 million US dollars in funding, from the US government, Japanese automotiveindustry and related industries. His research mainly focuses on fuel cells,hybrids, renewable energy, as well as energy storage and conversion.

Wang Cheng: R&D of graphite platecell stack technology Chemical Engineering, Tsinghua University. Currently, Wang is a PhDSupervisor at Tsinghua University, director of the Hydrogen Fuel CellLaboratory of Tsinghua University, member-cum-liaison officer of the NationalFuel Cell Standardization Committee, as well as member of the National HydrogenEnergy Standardization Committee.

Wangwas previously an associate researcher at the ENEA CASSACIA Rome Center inItaly, where he focused on fuel cells and systems. He has undertaken more than20 national scientific and technological projects, published 92 SCI papers(cited 1,765 times), owns 51 invention patents (including 10 US inventionpatents), and jointly drafted a number of national standards.

Hisresearch has led to: 1) Synthesis of the Nafion nanowire rapid protonconductor, which provides a new material for the high performance of fuelcells; 2) systematic R&D of fuel cell self-humidifying technology; 3)development of China’s first complete fuel cell stack with independentintellectual property rights; 4) proposal of a new direction for orderedmembrane electrodes based on Nafion nanorods.
