Schaeffler’s fuel cells are energy converters, which let H2 react with O2 to form water.

We have recognized the potential of hydrogen technology as an alternative energy carrier of the future and are developing key components for fuel cell stacks and systems. We are using our traditional core expertise in materials technology, forming technology, and surface technology in this development work. We are strongly diversified in the industrial and automotive sectors and are involved at every point in the energy chain, from the generation of energy, to its use in vehicles.

Schaeffler’s fuel cells are energy converters, which let H2 react with O2 to form water. The electricity generated during this process is used to power the vehicle’s electric motor. In addition to bipolar plates and entire fuel cell stacks, Schaeffler also offers high-performance control systems, low-friction bearings, and thermal management modules that help make fuel cells even more efficient and cost-effective.
