NA, Dec 20 (Reuters) - Austria's BWT water technology group said on Friday it had joined forces with fuel cell developer Nuvera Fuel Cells to develop a component to improve the performance of cells.

Fuel cells generate electricity from a chemical reaction between hydrogen fuel and oxygen in the air, producing only water and heat as waste products.

They are being developed as environmentally friendly alternatives to internal combustion engines in cars, buses and portable power generators.

BWT said in a statement the deal involved developing a polymeric membrane suitable for industrial fuel cell applications, focusing on a product that could operate at temperatures above 90 degrees centigrade.
