Pajarito Powder, LLC (PPC) is a venture-backed company founded with the mission of being the world's first commercial manufacturer of drop-in replacement non-platinum fuel cell catalysts. Existing catalysts are made with platinum, an exorbitantly expensive substance with a turbulent and precarious supply chain.
Working with some of the world's leading catalyst research facilities, PPC delivers catalysts made of widely available and inexpensive materials with the performance and durability needed for today's applications.
The use of platinum in fuel cell catalysts, at over $1,600 per ounce, creates a cost structure that is preventing the widespread adoption of this zero-carbon technology. Further, the supply of platinum is controlled by a very few entities and countries, and marked by violence and source interruptions.
PPC’s technology does not rely upon rare substances, in fact its composition represents a finely crafted blend of readily-available substances – a huge benefit when it comes to both consistent delivery and scalability.
