Abstract
Over the years, increased attention in the use of alternative energy conversion devices has resulted in order to reduce the ever-increasing consumption of fossil fuels. Fuel cells are an excellent option among alternative energy technologies because they have the ability to convert chemical energy stored in fuels directly into electrical energy without the emission of polluting chemicals. In particular, anion exchange membrane (AEM) fuel cells offer significant advantages over other types of fuel cells because they can mitigate fuel leakages, device failures, and most importantly reduce production costs as they can utilize non-platinum-based metal catalysts.
