AFC Energy places first commercial electrode order with De Nora


The next steps towards the delivery of a commercial alkaline fuel cell system have been taken by industrial fuel cell power company AFC Energy as it confirmed the first commercial order of cathodes had been placed with Industrie De Nora.
