MGX Minerals Inc announced that its wholly owned subsidiary ZincNyx Energy Solutions Inc has now commissioned particle sizing equipment as part of final preparations to begin manufacturing cathodes for use in its next generation fuel cell batteries. The immediate objective is to decrease cathode manufacturing costs by at least 50% and ultimately reduce costs by more than 90% to achieve a manufactured cost of less than USD 10 per cathode. In addition to its use in manufacturing of the existing cathode, ZincNyx also plans to use the equipment in the development of its next generation of proprietary fuel cell cathodes that will bring further cost and performance gains. The ability of the new equipment to analyze particles in suspension will also enable ZincNyx engineers to better characterize the morphology and behavior of the dendritic zinc particles that are at the core of the ZincNyx technology.

Initial test work performed during the commissioning phase of the equipment demonstrated sample concentrations around 6m in size. The particle size analyzer will serve as one of the main qualification tools for further development and optimization of the processes used in the manufacturing of the company's unique fuel cell cathodes. ZincNyx intends to conduct microscopic characterization and performance optimization studies to reduce catalyst loading as the cathode is an essential component of its patented fuel cell module, which has already been released for production.
