1 McGehee horizon of new technologies are such automotive advancements as hydrogen fuel cells, fully electric vehicle cells, zinc air fuel cells, and biodiesel. Although all are great innovations in our field, only one proves to be a real solution to the urgent need for a new automotive platform. Replacing the current internal combustion engine found in most automobiles today, hydrogen fuel cells will surely become the replacement fuel type in the automotive industry. Using hydrogen fuel cell technology as an alternative in the effort of finding a new automobile platform, many positive changes can be made to the world around us. To first understand how a hydrogen fuel cell could become the worldwide answer to the increasing search for a new alternative fuel, one must first understand how the platform works. Many different types of hydrogen fuel cells exist, and the polymer exchange membrane fuel cell based hydrogen fuel cell is the best application for an automotive platform(Jacobson). The polymer exchange membrane hydrogen fuel cell platform is comprised of an anode, a cathode, a proton membrane, and a catalyst. All of these vital
