Plansee Shuts Down Fuel Cell Division

Plansee SE, which specializes in high-temperature materials and is based in Reutte, Austria, will discontinue its fuel cell business. Early this year, management had announced that the company intended to refocus attention on core operations, namely molybdenum and wolfram production, and abandon research on metal-supported fuel cells. It is said, however, that Global Tungsten & Powders, a fully owned Plansee subsidiary headquartered in Towanda, USA, will continue and expand the work on passive high-temperature fuel cells, which involves the development and manufacture of metal powders for fuel cell components such as CFY interconnects.
