Fab-Lab CNH2 is specialized in hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. It is open to external use of scientifics, technicians and overall society. At the Fab-Lab CNH2 it is possible the full fabrication of low power polymeric technology fuel cells and electrolyzers and the development of their BoPs and control systems. The digital equipment and the methods used can reproduce the fabrication processes developed at others Fab-Labs.
