Abstract

Description and analysis of membrane electrode assembly and different manufacturing processes of Proton Electron Membrane has been made. Efforts were made to explain the types of assembly and manufacturing methods. Finding innovative ways to fabricate PEM fuel cell components, which affords mass production at lower operating cost, is one of the major threats to its commercialisation. Additive manufacturing techniques are seen as efficient and fast manufacturing methods that builds up components layer-by-layer in three dimensions, rather than conventional subtractive manufacturing techniques. This helps to reducing the overall cost, manufacturing time and wastage. The major aim of this work is to help people working with PEM fuel cells make informed decision regarding the selection of material and the choice of process. Choosing the right type of assembly
