SUMMARY OF THE METAL--AIR FUEL CELL RESEARCH PROGRAM

The objective of this program is to determine whether a full-performance, economical electric vehicle can be developed using a mechanically rechargeable metal--air battery as a power source. State-of-the-art and projected performance, energy conversion efficiency, estimates of cost of ownership and operation, considerations of market entry, and current research areas are discussed. Li, Al, and Ca seem to hold the greatest promise. (ERA citation 03:024122)
